Throughout 2016, AAS has been exploring what happens when things break down. When self is lost. When abjection occurs. When emotional flooding results in catastrophe. When another organ takes control of the body. When another system takes over logistics. When a quantity of sensation is categorically different from all the quantities before. When you play too loud, too long or too hard. When your world ends.
Chaotic Good: Crabhead / Collaborative Princess / Lumpy Oracle has been developed out of a process of molecular collaboration by AAS with the assistance of Northumbria University, in the form of Warwick Stafford Fellowship support for AAS member Stuart Tait. AAS also wish to acknowledge molecular contributions to development of this work by: Rob Smith, Kayt Hughes, Juliet Fleming, Philip Cornett, Diana Policarpo, Bea Turner, Ian Watson, Shereen Elizabeth and Rene McBrearty. With thanks to Mrs Patterson’s Press and Claire Potter for their work on the exhibition publication.
