Price: Pay What You Can
Episode 10 continues Arika’s ground-breaking series of public programming, comprising 5 days of performances, discussions and screenings about how the emergent art and thought of collectivist desires, the complex flow of contemporary maths and the counterintuitive realities of particle physics help us grow the capacity to be one another’s means without end.

Alongside Episode 10: A means without end, Arika presents this interactive kinetic sculpture by Fred Moten and Wu Tsang. This exhibition will be open to the public free of charge, and includes an opening event on Thursday 21st November with free refreshments from 7pm onwards.
“Gravitational Feel is a kinetic sculptural performance. It is activated in movement and touch, in the mutual rub, shift and lap of its sonic, wooden, steel, textile and human material. As you mix the sound, in your movement in and across a circle formed by (squared) speakers, the ropes move, becoming strings in having been brushed and strummed by you. In their turn, in the turning of the rotaries from which they fall, the strings move you with their touch, just as in touching one another you move one another, either directly or by the messages you send from strand to strand. In this way, Gravitational Feel is an engine for intensifying the differentiation of our entanglement, continually programming itself through incalculable combinations of disruption and convergence. Your movements, which are neither destructive nor curatorial, are both deconstruction and cure. Therefore, Wu and Fred kindly request your steadfastly refraining from any attempt to be still.” – Wu Tsang & Fred Moten
