patten: FLEX Constellation (SNC0919) (2019)

FLEX Constellation (SNC0919); pyramid acoustic foam panels; wall mounted flatscreen LED monitors with digital video; sound.

FLEX Constellation (SNC0919) extends the world of patten’s new transmedia project FLEX – combining fragments of liquified, hi-tech sound with evocative image and text to create a physical intervention within the gallery space. Set within a full wall clad in pyramid-acoustic foam usually found in recording studios, the panelling operates as a means to redefine the white walled gallery space itself– unvariegated planes reacting and shifting across surfaces.

patten is a London-based project renowned for their hi-tech immersive AV shows. Their sci-fi-sounding concepts on the trail of Aphex Twin are a mix of influences from footwork to techno, and deconstructed club and contemporary British electronic milieu. Their last full-length Ψ (“psi”) was released by Warp. Their creative outlets range from design as 555-5555, to installation, film, software programming, music, live performance, and publishing. Their recent work includes AV shows at the ICA and Tate Modern in London and ongoing art direction for Dan Snaith’s Daphni albums. In 2019 they were represented by the SHAPE Platform.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
