15.10.10 We are speaking at The New Vitality: Art in Human-Nonhuman Ecologies / Human-Nonhuman Ecologies in Art:

6. Nov 10

Spike Island
133 Cumberland Road
Bristol BS1 6UX, UK

Free. Booking required (spikeassociates@gmail.com)


An informal, public round-table discussion, featuring presentations by artists Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Kika Thorne & Jem Noble. Introduced by Dr Emma J Roe (University of Southampton). Ideas of human-nonhuman relations permeate diverse territories of critical discourse1, providing what Emma J. Roe has expressed as 'a challenge to the category of the human'2. This challenge opens new spaces for understanding the concept of materiality outside of the subject-centred, instrumental division of the world into living beings and inert matter, in which human life has historically been conceived as occupying a position of supreme agency.

The notion of human-nonhuman evokes the affective and afflictive power of matter as a differentiated field of acting things (what Bruno Latour has called ‘actants’), ever moving in shifting assemblages (including humans), accumulating, manifesting and dispersing powers to act with and on each other in ecologies of temporary material forms and relations. In this respect, humans can be understood to exert a far wider array of powers as sites of material action and interaction – as things – than as reflexive subjects.

What are the implications of this non subject-centered, ‘thingly’ conception of the world for producing and engaging with art? What can the situation of human-centred agency within the broader relations of material 'actancy' bring to notions of art's multiple uses, powers and responsibilities? Where do concepts such as ‘dematerialised’ artwork fit in the realm of what Jane Bennet calls ‘vibrant matter’?

Organised as an informal, public round-table discussion, this event will begin with three presentations by artists Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Kika Thorne and Jem Noble, introducing works that address issues of materiality from different positions. Rather than thinking singularly of the human-nonhuman as a frame for understanding these works, we might consider what distinctions might arise, if any, in the potential utility of the concept of human-nonhuman.



22.9.10 We are speaking at the Audiovisual Posthumanism Conference in Lesvos, 23 - 27 September 2010


Posthumanism is not only an academic theory interpreting the recent cultural attitudes of scholars, but a reality becoming more and more visible to the totality of the audiovisual media of our times. It’s about time to see and examine all posthumanist aspects as they are expressed in a wide range of The Humanities, Social Sciences and the evolution of the Arts. Therefore, the Conference aims at approaching Posthumanism not only as an alternative for Transhumanism (which reflects a lot of American theory), but also as a New Humanism (an attitude mainly adopted by European theory) or an expression of Postmodernism. For the above reasons, papers discussing Neo-Humanistic approaches are most welcome. Moreover, we also welcome papers criticizing Posthumanism, either as a form of Transhumanism or as an expression of the Postmodern, as the main ambition of the organizers of this conference is to set more fertile ground for serious and unprejudiced discussions on the contemporary directions of philosophy, theory and aesthetics.

6.9.10 We will be performing WE on 16.9.10 at 20:00, as part of the exhibition Hierarchies of Alliegiance at The Royal Standard in Liverpool. The exhibition will also present our films The Future Trilogy, Conflict Within the Organization and Co-Operative Explanatory Capabilities in Organizational Design and Personnel Management:

Christian Newby // Jonathan Baldock // Pil and Galia Kollectiv

Grand Opening: Thursday 16 September 2010 5-9pm Including a performance, WE by Pil and Galia Kollectiv

Exhibition continues until 17 October 2010

The Royal Standard is pleased to present Hierarchies of Allegiance, our first exhibition during the Liverpool Biennial 2010. Hierarchies of Allegiance is a group exhibition that brings together U.K based artists whose work encompasses film, performance, drawing and installation. Linked as much by the artists’ interests in examining art historical figures as by their sensitivity to myth, custom and symbolism, the works in Hierarchies of Allegiance share a rich aesthetic that references the uncanny, the darkly humourous and the melancholic. Each artist engages with a particular socio-cultural subject with which they have strongly identified, reconfiguring it in unique ways, to parody social traditions and mediate on the relationships between ceremony, theatre and arcane ritual.

TALK AND EVENTS. Thursday 16 September 2010, at 7.30pm To coincide with the preview of Hierarchies of Allegiance, Pil and Galia Kollectiv will perform their most recent commissioned performance, WE. WE will feature the artists playing live music with Victor M. Jakeman and Ruth Angel Edwards. Challenging the individualism of the Western pop song, WE reveals the latent politics of the love song and transforms chart hits by annihilating their liberal subject and replacing it with a collective consciousness. Through the simple substitution of the plural for the singular, intimacy becomes a form of collective action and the unique the universal. Inspired by the dystopian fiction of Yevgeny Zamyatin and the minimal synth covers of pop classics made by obscure DiY groups in the late 1970s and early 1980s, WE follows in the footsteps of bands like The Better Beatles, who sought to improve on the canon of popular music by stripping it bare.

Saturday 2 October 6pm A screening of Pil and Galia Kollectiv’s films including ‘The Future Trilogy’ series (2006-2009), ‘Conflict Within the Organization’ (2010) and ‘Co-Operative Explanatory Capabilities in Organizational Design and Personnel Management’ (2010).

Saturday 16 October 2pm Artist talk. Jonathan Baldock in conversation with curators Lucy MacDonald and Laura Robertson. The Royal Standard Unit 3, Vauxhall Business Centre, 131, Vauxhall Road, Liverpool, L3 6BN info@the-royal-standard.com www.the-royal-standard.com Opening hours Wednesday to Sunday 11–6pm


2.9.10 The Future Trilogy and Co-Operative Explanatory Capabilities in Organizational Design and Personnel Management will be shown as part of our exhibition at the Te Tuhi Art Centre in New Zealand. The exhibition opens on Saturday 11.9.10 at 14:00, when we will also be giving a talk.

Address: 13 Reeves Road, PO Box 51222, Pakuranga, Manukau City, New Zealand Aotearoa.


30.8.10 Asparagus: A Hoticultural Ballet will be screened as part of IF ONLY..! at the Bluecoat, Liverpool, on 2.9.10 at 20:00:

16.8.10 Our new performance WE will be presented at Oslo Kunsthall on 29.8.10:

Kunsthall Oslo presents Pil and Galia Kollectiv: WE
A performance at Kunsthall Oslo on Sunday August 29th 14.00 and 20.00
Address: Trelastgata 3

Inspired by the dystopian fiction of Yevgeny Zamyatin and the minimal synthesiser music of the early 80s, London-based artist duo Pil and Galia Kollectiv are joined by Victor M. Jakeman and Ruth Angel Edwards to present popular chart hits in new versions, turning songs about 'me' and 'you' into songs about 'us', and replacing the individual 'I' with the collective 'WE'.

"You're in a bad way! Apparently, you've developed a soul." (Yevegeny Zamyatin, We, 1920)

The performance WE reveals the latent politics of the love song by annihilating its liberal subject; through the simple substitution of the plural for the singular, intimacy becomes a form of collective action and the unique the universal. Sonically, WE follows in the footsteps of bands like The Better Beatles, who sought to improve on the canon of popular music by stripping it bare, even.

“It is Marx who, for ‘general intellect’, uses the term ‘social individual’. We can postulate that the general is something pre-individual, a kind of general consciousness that exists before individuals form, and from which they form. This general pre-individual is a ‘we’ that exists before the different I’s develop, so is not the sum of all I’s.” - Paolo Virno

Kunsthall Oslo, a new, non-profit art space in central Oslo, will open with a full exhibition programme in mid- September. During the final stages of the gallery's construction, we invite you to join us for a series of one-night, events. Contact info@kunsthalloslo.no or see www.kunsthalloslo.no for more.

A theatre to address

Festival of textual form - concrete, material, scripted, performed Friday 4 and Saturday 5 June

16 Narrow Quay
Bristol, BS1 4QA

Tickets: £15 / £10 weekend pass or £8 / 6 per event (Book on 0117 917 2300)

Friday 4 June,
20.00hrs A theatre to address: performances Clare Gasson, Maryam Jafri, Pil and Galia Kollectiv

Saturday 5 June,
18.30hrs A theatre to address: talks, readings and screenings Sovay Berriman, Phil Coy, Annabel Frearson, Beatrice Gibson, Julika Gittner, The Otolith Group

A Media Art Bath project in collaboration with Arnolfini

A theatre to address is a programme of performances, talks and readings that explore the many forms of text from concrete poetry or sound sculpture to theatrical script, radio play, voice over or song. Text exists here on a multiple of levels as something to be investigated through reference to an historical document or event, and as a means of address. And in this way, A theatre to address is also about the governing power of language to direct or order our experience. The two-day programme includes exciting new work by Clare Gasson, Maryam Jafri and a performance of Pil and Galia Kollectiv’s epic musical performance Critical Mass – a sermon for the Church of the Atom with live music by Gelbart.

In addition, there is a programme of talks, readings and a screening of The Otolith Group’s film Otolith 3. The talks and readings provide both an opportunity to tease-out some of the ideas behind the programme as well as to see and hear text-based work by artists – Sovay Berriman, Phil Coy, Annabel Frearson, and Julika Gittner. The Arnolfini Archive Project – a changing display in the Reading Room – will exhibit work that has a relationship to A theatre to address, and items from the Arnolfini archive. Presented as part of Media Art Bath's Commissioning for a theatre – a programme of annual commissions that explores the differing forms and locations of the theatrical in visual culture. For more information go to our website – www.mediaartbath.org.uk - where you can sign up for email updates, or find us on Facebook and Twitter.


Also, we are participating in the exhibition Bureacracy Now! in San Francsico:

Bureaucracy Now!

May 29 – 30, 2010


Bureaucracy Now!, Parlour No. 15, is the first Parlour exhibition to take place outside of New York City. The show is guest curated by Elysa Lozano for Autonomous Organization and hosted by artist Jon Meyer in his San Francisco live-work space. It features the works of Amy Balkin, Anthony Discenza, Daniel Eatock, Josh Greene, Jonn Herschend, InCUBATE, Packard Jennings, Leo Marz, Jon Meyer, Kristin Neidlinger, Nancy Nowacek, Pil and Galia Kollectiv and Royal NoneSuch Gallery.


Titled after the exhibition Utopia Now! at the CCA Wattis in 2001, Bureaucracy Now! references this drive for a better society by:

• Bureaucracy as a medium for individual agency

• Management as self-management

• Bureaucratic engagement as opening a space for debate and negotiation

The aesthetics of the office reconfigured or re-invented

• Examining how organization occurs, and how it can be co-opted.



And finally, The Future Trilogy will be screened as part of Signal and Noise at VIVO, Vancouver:

VIVO Media Arts Centre presents the 10th annual Signal & Noise Media Arts Festival; four days of contemporary media and sound art projections, performances and installations. Signal & Noise X features work that complicates and disrupts formal and conceptual interpretations of media as a means for engaging sensory perception, contriving linguistic and non-verbal communication, and representing and positioning subjectivities.

The festival is exited to present the work of: Mitchell Akiyama | Raymond Boisjoly | Jubal Brown | Roy Caussy | Kevin Clancy | Aleesa Cohene | Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay | Ian William Craig | Brady Cranfield | Spencer Davis | Rä di Martino | Félix Dufour-Laperrière | Francisca Duran | Empress | Peter Eramian | Gabriela Golder | Lief Hall | Max Hattler | Tijmen Hauer | Alex Hetherington | Pil & Galia Kollectiv | Pascal Lièvre | Heidi Nagtegaal | Hee Won Navi Lee | Lance Olsen | Heidi Phillips | Elodie Pong | Anahita Razul | Mary Reid Kelley | Billy Roisz | Josh Rose | Sade Sade | prOphecy Sun | Leslie Supnet | DJ Tapes | Yi Xin Tong | Sydney Vermont | Paul Walde | Patrick Ward

Signal & Noise is an intimate forum for creative exchange between local, national and international artists. To expand this exchange the festival is co-presenting two offsite exhibitions with Access Gallery and Malaspina Printmakers. Central themes of the festival will be explored in public conversations between Sydney Vermont, Roy Caussy, Raymond Boisjoly, Lief Hall, Heidi Nagtegaal, Gabriel Saloman, Brady Cranfield and Kevin Clancy. In celebration of our 10th year we are printing a limited edition anniversary publication that will feature visual and textual contributions by all artists and curators involved in the festival.

What began as the Satellite Video Exchange Society in 1973 later became Video In/ Video Out and has most recently morphed into VIVO Media Arts Centre. Rebranding represents our dedication to experimentation and cross-pollination of all media technologies and processes including video, audio, gaming, electronics, cyberarts and new genres. Located at 1965 Main Street in Vancouver BC Canada, VIVO is a non-profit education, production, exhibition and distribution centre. VIVO has been a landmark in Vancouver’s artist run centre community for over thirty-five years and is an invaluable member Canada’s contemporary arts community.

24.4.10 New film Co-Operative Explanatory Capabilities in Organizational Design and Personnel Management will be shown alongside a live performance on 19.5.10 at 19:00 at Yinka Shonibare's Space as part of Happy End / A Transmitter To the Ultimate Way of Contemporary Living. Based on an online image archive documenting the construction and history of an early computing company, the fictional story of "Co-Operative Explanatory Capabilities in Organizational Design and Personnel Management” follows the development of an experimental approach to worker productivity into a religious cult. The project investigates the place of creativity in efficiency management and the operation of bureaucratic systems in a post-industrial work environment:

Events: every Wednesday starts from 5th May 2010 6.30pm
Opening: Friday 11th June 2010 6-10pm
Exhibition: 12th June – 11th July 2010 Friday - Sunday 12-6pm
FREE ENTRY to all events

Location: Guest Projects - Yinka Shonibare’s Space
Sunbury House, 1 Andrews Road London E8 4QL

From May to July 2010, Basement Art Projects will present a twelve-week show: Happy End / A Transmitter To the Ultimate Way of Contemporary Living at Guest Projects, London. The exhibition features works by international artists Andro Semeiko, Yu-Chen Wang, Alasdair Duncan, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Ad de Jong, Sheena Macrae, Astali and Peirce, Andrew Darke, Lakis and Aris Ionas, Sebastian Lowsley-Williams and Tomoko Takahashi and includes performance by Oliver Langdon and Caroline Garland from Kilter Theatre and a film programme curated by Georgia Korossi.

Happy End takes its starting point from a semi-fictional story about Andro Semeiko and Yu-Chen Wang’s life and a journey to reach never-ending happiness. The story is based on the construction of a transmitter – a complex mechanical device that enables transportation to authentic happiness. As the device is developed it becomes apparent that the transmitter is more than a machine; it is a space, a unique experience and the ultimate way of living.

Happy End will evolve through weekly previews of different artists’ work and a series of music, film, theatre and participatory events. Individual and collective contributions will combine to influence the changing content and shape of the project. After the exhibition, the transmitter will continue to live on in shared experience, ideas and relationships.

The exhibition is curated by Yu-Chen Wang and assisted by Molly Bretton.

29.3.10 We are showing a new film as part of Testbed 1 at Beaconsfield gallery from 13.4.10 - 9.5.10, private view and talk on 23.4.10 from 15:00:

TestBed 1

Anthony Gross
Michael Curran and Lucy Gunning
Pil and Galia Kollectiv
Joseph Walsh
Lilli Hartmann
Dafna Talmor

Upper Gallery 1, Canteen Gallery 2 & Arch Gallery 3

3 March - 18 July
Tuesday - Sunday 11am - 5pm

On-Site Residencies open to the public Showcase during Open House London: 18-19 September 2010

TestBed 1 reflects popular practice by commissioning six new digital screen-based works, to be made through readily available modes of production. In an age when millions of viewers have access to the Internet, video cameras and home-editing suites, a circulated YouTube clip can become a conversational spectacle overnight and the public en masse has been enabled to become not only viewers but creators. As the creative process itself has become more democratic with accelerating digital technology, the traditional gulf between cinematic and lo-fi film production values has narrowed. From March to late July commissioned artists will use Beaconsfield as a creative base in a series of residencies. Limited means of production, collaboration and audience participation, supported by the context of a professional art space will serve as a framework for the commissions. During this time the public is invited to witness the act of making art, as our galleries turn laboratories, turn performance and production sites. FlatScreen will provide a continuous interface with a programme of artists’ films and linked material screening in Canteen Gallery 2 throughout the period.

Residency Dates:

Anthony Gross, 3 - 21 March
Michael Curran and Lucy Gunning, 23 March - 11 April
Pil and Galia Kollectiv, 13 April - 9 May
Joseph Walsh, 20 April - 30 May
Lilli Hartmann, 27 April - 4 June
Dafna Talmor, 22 June - 18 July

The full programme of new commissions produced for TestBed 1 will be screened on 18 and 19 September during Open House weekend.

TestBed 1 is produced as part of Beaconsfield’s curatorial mentoring scheme for emerging artist-curators. Mentees: Dafna Talmor and Joseph Walsh.Beaconsfield is the central London site dedicated to providing a critical space for creative enquiry. Beaconsfield Commissions 2010

19.01.10 We are in a show about collage at Stephen Lawrence Gallery, private view Tuesday 26th of January 18:00 - 20:00:

Use and Mention: Part One

curated by John Chilver

The appearance of collage in early twentieth-century art marked an immense alteration in visual experience. In collage, space and time could be sliced and spliced in ways previously unavailable to photography or painting; collage could be additive (placement, juxta-position,com-position) or subtractive (cut, removal). Although mainstream visual technologies have today normalized methods that originated in collage, and although the becoming-orthodox of appropriation and post-production have homogenised the terrain it traverses, collage nonetheless still empowers tactics that play at de-skilling while invoking intimacy, interrupted passivity and subtractive force. A reliance on dramatic juxtaposition was characteristic of classic modernist collage, as in Hannah Höch’s virtuoso works of the 1920s and 30s. Whatever their variety, contemporary applications of collage frequently forego the method of declarative juxtaposition, often favouring instead an intricate and implosive thinking. Catherine Malabou's writings propose a concept of plasticity that is intimately linked to explosiveness and emphatically separated from elasticity: an elastic form can return to its earlier state after suffering deformations, whereas a plastic form cannot; instead it retains the signs of alteration when stretched, gouged, scarred, re-moulded or cut. Collage in this exhibition is understood as a transferable and mutable apparatus of subtractive plasticity. 'Use & Mention' offers a broad selection of current collage-related activity. It includes works on paper, text, sound and video works, featuring:
