Super Sharp Reloaded: RETURN II JUNGLE at Selfridges until Thursday 6 September 2018

Saul Milton and Tory Turk present Super Sharp Reloaded, the second instalment of RETURN II JUNGLE. 🔊🔊🔊

Held at Selfridges on the 3rd floor in the Designer Studio, the latest instalment comprises of a static installation inspired by British music and fashion of the golden years of Jungle music from the mid-late 90’s.

Initiated by Saul Milton’s extensive Moschino Collection – the unique display will explore the way in which the Jungle era played host to the appropriation of Italian high fashion labels.

Drawing on Jungle music whilst also transporting it into the present day, and re-vamping the genre for the modern-day music fan, the installation will be accompanied by a specially curated soundtrack by Saul featuring audio quotes from jungle artists such as Navigator, Uncle Dugs and renowned writer Brian Belle-Fortune.

There will also be a specially created film by Tom Archer, featuring rare footage by Garry Clarke from his archive of junglists and ravers at popular club nights such as One Nation and at venues like Sanctuary.

teamLab: Transcending Boundaries @ Pace Gallery / until 11th March 2017

Doors: Tues-Sat 11-4

Exploring the role of digital technology in transcending the physical and conceptual boundaries that exist between different artworks, with imagery from one work breaking free of the frame and entering the space of another.

The installations also dissolve distinctions between artwork and exhibition space, and involve the viewer through interactivity.

The largest room in the exhibition will include six works and feature Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries (2017), a virtual waterfall that extends beyond the gallery wall onto the floor, flowing through the exhibition space and around the feet of the viewer. It engages with the concept of Ultra Subjective Space, central to teamLab’s practice, referencing the non-perspectival depiction of space in premodern Japanese art and situating the viewer directly within the realm of the artwork.

Encompassing the second room, Dark Waves (2016) is a simulation of the movement of waves based on the behaviour of hundreds of thousands of water particles. The waves are created in a three-dimensional virtual space, expressing water as a living entity that immerses the viewer and suggests an intrinsic connection with nature.

In the last room, the darkened space is transformed by the presence of the viewer, which activates Flowers Bloom on People (2017). With the body as a canvas for the projections, flowers are in a process of continuous change—growing, decaying and scattering in direct response to the viewer’s movements.

With a well-deserved place on the BBC Sound of 2012 list, Dot Rotten, previously known as Young Dot, has made a storming start to the new year with new single ‘Are You Not Entertained’ being named Zane Lowe’s ‘hottest record of the week’. Counting a diverse range of musical influences including Sting, Bob Marley and ‘Lil Wayne, the south Londoners sound is leading the UK’s grime scene and crossing over to mainstream and chart success. Already a hailed MC and producer (Tine Tempeh, Wiley, Ghetts) Dot Rotten now sits of the brink of big things in his own right. This is one show you will want to witness.

Manchester based artist Darren Williams, better known as Star Slinger and already touted by Guardian’s New Band of The Day as an act to keep your eye on, brings his unique sound to London for what is shaping up to be one hell of a line up. Best known for taking old R&B album cuts and spinning them into new songs. His debut album, Volume 1, sees snippets of Prefab Sprout and Musical Youth take centre stage. In addition, Star Slinger played hip hop and dance orientated sets on the festival circuit last year and is now working on a follow up album: Volume 2.
