The Gasoline Rooms are proud to host the visual and textual work of Andreas Philippopoulos Mihalopoulos. The Iron Books is a series of thirty material poems that trace, photographically and textually, the posthuman condition.
The works originate in Instagram, shot and written instantly without editing. They are here transposed onto metal books that oscillate between the fleeting and the monumental. The Iron Books are iPhonographic and philosophical poems erupting with fear, desire, sexuality, vulnerability, geological angst, and the displaced sense of property and belonging of the posthuman era.
The show is curated by aKwamarina.
A limited edition publication designed by Sakis Kyratzis will be on sale.
The specially commissioned soundscape on the opening night is by Nathan Moore.
The show is part of The Institute for Modern and Contemporary Culture
and the Whitechapel Gallery/TimeOut First Thursdays
