Digital Arts – “As you said, things resist and things are resistant” by KERNEL

Triennial exhibition of NEW MUSEUM is the only recurring international exhibition in New York City devoted to emerging artists from around the world, providing an important platform for a new generation of artists who are shaping the current discourse of contemporary art and the future of culture.

“Songs for Sabotage,” the fourth New Museum Triennial, explores interventions into cities, infrastructures, and the networks of everyday life, proposing objects that might create common experience. We are delightful to participate in the creation of such an artistic exhibit made by KERNEL (founded in 2009, Athens, Greece, by Pegy Zali, Petros Moris, and Theodoros Giannakis; live and work in Athens, Greece).

“As you said, things resist and things are resistant”( February 2018), is a mixed media installation with aluminum pallets, copper-plated acrylic resin, foam cable-jackets, steel, and an exclusive unique robotic mechanism which is designed by ARCHOFF and engined by 01mechatronics.

“Greek collective Kernel’s post-apocalyptic aluminium-pallet and cable-jacket assemblage As you said, things resist and things are resistant, 2018, which is tricked out with a robotic mechanism that dictates the movement of the work’s appendage, is admirably informed by Stefano Harvey and Fred Moten’s collection of essays The Undercommons: Fugitive Planning & Black Study, 2013, a treatise on capitalism’s attempts to dispense with human labor. However, the eye-catching installation ultimately comes across as nothing so much as an arty bid for some yet-unnamed public art commission, its message lost in translation. “
