S.W.A.M.P. Fire Sale
Opening Friday 3 July at 6.30pm
MIC Toi Rerehiko is pleased to present an exhibition by digital
media collective S.W.A.M.P.. This will be the first instance of
S.W.A.M.P. showing in New Zealand and follows the Colab residency of
member Matt Kenyon. Kenyon has collaborated with Doug Easterly as
SWAMP since 1999. Originally formed in the United States, the
collective has exhibited extensively over the past decade, most
recently at Exit Art in New York City, ISEA2008 in Singapore and
Videotageedia, Hong Kong. Trained formally in painting, their mutual
interests in emergence theory, evolution and popular culture has led
to research, production and lecturing in the realm of new media.
Featuring eight works that span a variety of media, S.W.A.M.P.’s
Fire Sale stages a critique of contemporary values through a medley
of interventions and interdisciplinary enquiries.
S.W.A.M.P. will be giving an artists talk and holding a panel
discussion at Galatos later in the month. Details to come shortly.
Catalogues featuring an interview with S.W.A.M.P. in conversation
with Alessandro Ludovico will be available at the gallery from
The full interview is online, here
