Batch Collective presents Cookies & Coke March 2019

22 March 2019 @Art Number 23 Gallery
The Old Biscuit Factory · London

Shefali Asija, Lelia Byron, Paul Chisholm, Georg Dahled, Matt Doughty, Marion Flanagan, Peter Ibberson, CEVIGA (Kyungok Paik), Andrea Rocha, Neil Shiereff and Anita Agarwal

Ten international artists work together to address problems of a post-Brexit world. Top on the agenda: How will the lonely, isolated British people get their stuff? Britain will stand alone, surviving on warm beer, cabbage and dry biscuits (like the good old days). What will they be willing to sacrifice for the sweet taste of foreign carbonated drinks?

Taking on the theme of CONSUMPTION, artists will explore what it means to mentally consume ideas, how humans consume the world, and the ethics of consumption. Come feed on artworks that will EAT, DRINK, BREATHE, USE, ABUSE, WATCH, INGEST, DEVOUR, and GOBBLE UP your attention.

Opening night on the 22nd will feature “Consume/consume/consumed,” a performance by Anita Agarwal and live music. On March 25th from 6-8 pm there will be talks and performances by: Luz Hitters, Crystal Isabel Fischetti, Paul Chisholm, (Episolipsism) Cyrus Lamprecht and Rachel Wong, MAtt DOughty, Rita Castanheira, (T&P Collective) Marina Silvello and Hannah Duckworth.
