WINE & DIE explores the sense of agency through staged self-destruction, repetition and imagery of isolation. It reflects on the conditions within which artistic expression is cultivated in relation to others – particularly the condition of shared intoxication. 

All the artists involved in WINE & DIE participated in the production or post-production of the film Winesploitation (which can be seen in the back gallery throughout the show). This exhibition came out of the low budget collectivity behind the film, with the aim of exposing the relational process of thinking/making/influence around its emergence. It involves photography, painting, sketch art, mixed-media installation and noise music.

This is a space in which to connect, expose and isolate, while reflecting on how exposed isolation (as exhibition translates “exposition” in French) can refer to a shared experience. Perhaps wine has something to do with it. 

Designed and curated by Temmuz Süreyya Gürbüz.

You can see his work on instagram @senan_oconnor, check out his film work @return_to_the_river or find him selling his prints on the streets of Cork, Berlin, New Orleans, Barcelona or somewhere else if your timing is right.
