Saturday 26th February, 3.30-5pm: Artists and Curators in Dialogue
Skin Job, which is slang for replicant in Ridley Scott's 1982 classic sci fi film Blade Runner, considers whether technology is something external to us, something we can chose to pick up and use, or is it already in us, a part of us, in our tongues, our brains, under our skin?
Skin Job, curated by Andrew Bryant, brings together seven artists to explore the ways in which technology, whether it be a high tech recording device, a lowly mallet and chisel, or that most insidious of technologies, language itself, seems to both liberate and ensnare us.
