Alexandra Dementieva in Permittivity of free space and Interalia Magazine
Alexandra Dementieva currently takes part in the group exhibition ‘Permittivity of free space’, opening tonight in the London APT Gallery and running until August 5th.
From APT’s press release:
The title of this exhibition refers to the resistance that material has to the flow of electricity and also applies to the vacuum of space. Alternative meanings relating to taking transitory ownership of the space are also relevant. The participating artists intend to develop progressive processes in the gallery space that include migrations of art works as well as the potential for changes in their structures during the four days. These translocations will influence perception of the works as well as of the space itself.
Interfaces act as the membrane in which ideas from online communities can permeate into real and physical manifestations. We intend to address this by accessing open source concepts in the creation of installations utilising materials harvested from local areas surrounding APT Gallery. We aim to transfer ideas into specific localities relating to everyday inhabitance of a space. We would like to create an open system in which ideas permeate between the artists and surrounding community.
