Elizabeth Price @ Nottingham Contemporary

I love Elizabeth Price's work, so I was curious to see two new pieces at Nottingham Contemporary whilst in Nottingham for Nottingham Does Comics.

The combination of retro 1980's advertising style imagery, with music and text combines to form a narrative, like so many other video installations, of a dystopian or utopian future for FELT TIP.

This history of mining in KOHL

The way the images work in a way that reminds you of old technology and imagined future utopias, fashion and wearable technology that is maybe subverted somehow, has a strangely hypnotic effect.
