With much of contemporary culture in late capitalist societies now greatly consolidated by personal computing devices, our experience of the material is largely deferred in favour of more immediate, digital representations. 'Elegant Degradation' responds to this context, examining this disjuncture between the material and the digital and the anxiety that this gap engenders.
This exhibition brings together a selection of artists whose practices explore this space between the digital and the material, engaging with photographic representation, online relaxation, geopolitics and digital representations of space.
