anon:​ ​abstraction​ ​is​ ​an​ ​objective​ ​for​ ​life​ ​patterning anon:​ ​production​ ​is​ ​what​ ​oils​ ​the​ ​gesture​ ​of​ ​the​ ​social anon:​ ​YOLO​ ​<3
***

Abstraction​ ​as​ ​a​ ​hyper​ ​material​ ​enables​ ​a​ ​meta​ ​existence​ ​of​ ​motion,​ ​CORE​ ​REMISSION​ ​will
unpack​ ​this​ ​notion​ ​through​ ​the​ ​mediums​ ​of​ ​painting​ ​and​ ​techno.

Abstraction​ ​modulates​ ​reality,​ ​yet​ ​to​ ​enact​ ​it​ ​collectively​ ​it​ ​requires​ ​a​ ​physical​ ​field.​ ​The​ ​architecture​ ​of clubs​ ​and​ ​galleries​ ​often​ ​offer​ ​this​ ​territory.​ ​A​ ​public​ ​cube​ ​is​ ​always​ ​a​ ​place​ ​of​ ​latent​ ​potentials:​ ​near visibility,​ ​against​ ​almost​ ​constraint.​ ​One​ ​could​ ​liken​ ​these​ ​sites​ ​of​ ​collectivity,​ ​i.e.​ ​the​ ​club,​ ​the​ ​gallery,​ ​the cinema​ ​to​ ​voluntary​ ​prison​ ​cells​ ​for​ ​those​ ​seeking​ ​a​ ​moment​ ​of​ ​abstract​ ​hyper​ ​density​ ​outside​ ​of​ ​their constructed​ ​reality.

YOLO​ ​often​ ​comes​ ​to​ ​mind​ ​when​ ​I​ ​think​ ​of​ ​abstraction.​ ​Thousands​ ​of​ ​novel​ ​or​ ​risky​ ​acts​ ​becoming reduced​ ​to​ ​a​ ​universal​ ​(un)unique​ ​after​ ​sound:​ ​YOLO.​ ​This​ ​neo-word,​ ​YOLO​ ​is​ ​both​ ​coltish​ ​and​ ​euphoric, as​ ​is​ ​any​ ​scene​ ​slang.​ ​The​ ​word​ ​seems​ ​to​ ​have​ ​hijacked​ ​both​ ​yellow​ ​and​ ​hello,​ ​mashing​ ​them​ ​into​ ​a hyper​ ​density​ ​gesture.​ ​A​ ​bold​ ​linguistic​ ​action.​ ​It​ ​renders​ ​both​ ​a​ ​moment​ ​of​ ​adrenaline​ ​and​ ​resignation​ ​into a​ ​cute​ ​contemporary​ ​cipher.​ ​The​ ​act​ ​requires​ ​a​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​become​ ​YOLO.​ ​Desire​ ​must​ ​bleed​ ​between​ ​life and​ ​the​ ​abstract.​ ​Knotting​ ​into​ ​turbulence,​ ​ruptures,​ ​and​ ​autonomous​ ​functioning​ ​cells​ ​to​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​exist.

We​ ​can​ ​at​ ​this​ ​point​ ​likened​ ​desire​ ​to​ ​a​ ​scripted​ ​life​ ​scenario​ ​and​ ​abstraction​ ​as​ ​the​ ​overlay​ ​of​ ​all​ ​possible realities​ ​of​ ​the​ ​plot.​ ​Eventually,​ ​the​ ​script​ ​will​ ​turn​ ​into​ ​clandestine​ ​gossip,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​all​ ​know​ ​gossip​ ​is​ ​more stimulating​ ​than​ ​life.

An​ ​exhibition​ ​or​ ​set​ ​list​ ​by​ ​its​ ​very​ ​nature​ ​is​ ​temporary​ ​and​ ​queer,​ ​much​ ​like​ ​gossip​ ​thus​ ​it​ ​remains​ ​a functional​ ​proposition.​ ​Be​ ​it​ ​a​ ​colour​ ​field​ ​or​ ​a​ ​re-verb​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​abstraction​ ​is​ ​ultimately​ ​an​ ​extension of​ ​the​ ​customary​ ​room​ ​with​ ​a​ ​view,​ ​a​ ​suicide​ ​of​ ​the​ ​now,​ ​a​ ​stage-death​ ​that​ ​just​ ​stood​ ​up​ ​for​ ​the​ ​encore.
