Everest Pipkin: Fragment Ecologies
Our new exhibition, Fragment Ecologies, is a solo show by internationally acclaimed American artist Everest Pipkin, and follows their online commission The Barnacle Goose Experiment last October.
Everest’s work focuses on the topics of ecology, play, and the exploration of networked Internet spaces and their many component parts. They make games, tools, and interactive works for the browser.
The various works in this show consider the edges and borders of utopian thinking in games and gardens.
Visitors are presented with a combination of traditional drawings, projections of moving image work, and a branching narrative poem within our secondary gallery space.
In our primary gallery, there is an accessible tabletop game and reading area, where you can play with your friends or browse by yourself, and we have copies of these games in our gift shop for you to purchase and play at home.
Digital games are installed in custom sculptural arcade cabinets on the gallery floor, and are available to play during gallery hours. With works such as Mirror Lake, bodies.html and Drift Mine Satellite, visitors will be able to explore the small and delicate game worlds that Everest creates.
