Artists Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe conjure alternative universes
Step inside London’s Marlborough Gallery, and you’ll encounter a series of bizarre and pseudo-futuristic worlds that boggle the mind and disorientate the senses.
American artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe have unleashed the latest instalment of their fictional San San Universe, where a telecommunication network for an unhinged wellness programme called ‘The Smile’ connects 11 dystopian, fantastical and downright surreal rooms.
Among them is a half-incinerated recording studio; a copper-lined vault designed to block electromagnetic radiation signals; a ‘quilted’ 1970s living room; and a telecommunications retail store.
The exhibition, dubbed Colony Sound, is accompanied by a soundtrack from Elizabeth Hart and Iván Lee with Lee Scratch Perry and runs throughout Frieze London until October 2019. Take a closer look.
