Plastique Fantastique

Plastique Fantastique is a group that investigates aesthetics, the sacred, politics and popular and mass culture through comics, performances, texts, assemblages and installations. It is envisaged as a group of human and inhuman avatars delivering communiqués from the extreme past and the future. Its works are baroque, transformative, express a subversive urgency and are frequently site-specific.

Plastique Fantastique is David Burrows and Simon O’Sullivan. It was formed in 2004 and has performed and exhibited in the UK and abroad including 176 Zabludowicz Collection, London; Outpost, Norwich; Apex, Portsmouth; Aliceday Gallery, Brussels and Pratt Manhattan Gallery, New York. They have participated in ‘GSK Contemporary’ at the Royal Academy of the Arts, London, ‘The Chemical Wedding’ Tate Britain, London 2008 and the 2010 Tatton Park Biennial.

The Cult of RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ:

The Cult of RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ ( the recently deceased 1980’s nasal rapper, graffiti artist, philosopher and seminal Gothic Futurist Ikonoklast Panzerism MC, the Equation>> RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ) is a collective of graffiti addicts, b-boys/b-girls, rappers, and electronica artists including Tex Royale, Dead Steppa, Nuke Eden, Lu Ma Itri Oi, Zig Tek 3, Meganski, Chooc Ly Tan, Nitro and Butchers Corner.

The Cult’s obsession with RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ is manifested through performing group ritualz that sample elements of 1980’s Hip Hop culture, now fast receding into a hazy subcultural graveyard. Hip Hop phrases are broken down and chanted, pointing to an obsessional affiliation with branded sportswear (“My Adidas!, My Air Jordanz!”). Adidas becomes the remixed god ‘Zi-Dada’ and Robert Moses — master architect of the Cross Bronx Expressway (The road partly responsible for the dystopian backdrop of 1970’s South Bronx where Hip Hop began) — becomes the god ‘Mozizizm’. The Cult often carry out ritualz at sites of dereliction to highlight the alchemic power of Hip Hop, where futuristic forms such as wildstyle graffiti on rapid transit subway trains, breakdancing, sampling/scratching/mixing emerged out of gentrified ruins.

Cultiplication has spread to Berlin, Culture Panke; London, Barbican; London, Gasworks; Rotterdam, Joey Ramon Gallery.

Kornelia Remø Klokk

Working with film, performance and fashion, and drawing on references from pop culture, conspiracy theory and the ideas of the abstract spiritualist painters Kornelia questions the concept of reality and truth, through creating environments where comfort and familiarity appeals to the viewer and lures them into a realm of the unknown. Kornelia lives and works in Glasgow.
