or-bits.com presents UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED at Banner Repeater with Tara Kelton, 14 September – 13 October 2013, PV 13 September 2013, 6pm to 9pm (coinciding with the Artists Books Weekend) and Prayas Abhinav of Museum of Vestigial Desire, 19 October – 17 October 2013, PV 18 October 2013, 6pm to 9pm

OUTSOURCED is a two-part exhibition project organised for Banner Repeater’s serial publication UN-PUBLISH.

Through presenting two consecutive solo projects by graphic designer/artist Tara Kelton and co-director of Museum of Vestigial Desire, Prayas Abhinav, UN-PUBLISH: OUTSOURCED explores the notion of outsourcing in its relationship with the users’ cultures and logics emerging from communicating through web-based services and online platforms.

Contributing to Banner Repeater’s: UN-PUBLISH serial publication, and in conjunction with the multiple modes of dissemination of artworks that Banner Repeater offers, such as free distribution of artists publications from the reading room and public space of Platform 1 at Hackney Downs rail station in London, Kelton and Abhinav have developed two new bodies of work to be experienced from different locations: at Banner Repeater project space, in the UN-PUBLISH publication 2.04 and 2.05 and at or-bits.com.

<< In her film review of The Social Network (David Fincher, 2010), Zadie Smith despises Facebook’s normalcy as defined by its autistic computer-nerd founders. “Maybe the whole internet simply becomes like Facebook: falsely jolly, fake-friendly, self-promoting, sickly disingenuous.” Smith asks if we shouldn’t struggle against this pacification. “We were going to live online. It was going to be extraordinary. Yet, what kind of living is this? Step back from your Facebook Wall for a moment: Doesn’t it, suddenly, look a little ridiculous? ‘Your’ life in ‘this’ format?
