1After320 / Practice Process


Exhibit 320's alternative space 1After320 opens the 2016-17 season with two programs that focus on ‘process’. The commercial institutional space is not always thought to have an interest in process – the unknown, experimental, fluid state before its manifestation as physical, tangible objects susceptible to the conundrums of the market. As a countering to that dominant sentiment Exhibit 320's alternative space 1After320 presents ‘Artist Process’ and ‘Practice Process’ that necessitates formats for cultural producers working within and outside of the institutional space simultaneously, to arrive at various possibilities that push their practice forward.

‘Practice Process’ is a long-term sustained initiative with a cultural producer whose practice shifts between the many defined roles within the global/local art contexts. Starting July 26th and at various points during the calendar year 2016-17, 1After320 hosts artist & technologist Hemant Sreekumar from New Delhi. Artistically he performs synthetic audio compositions using principles of emergence and noise. He also produces visual media including prints and light based works. His works respond to notions of decay, generative bias and loss of semantics. He employs code and data mediated processes to construct time-based environments with fluctuating textures. Hemank Sk also curates Disqueit, a sound/noise program since 2013.
