Keep Me Updated Your Holiness
The exhibition Keep Me Updated Your Holiness, introduces Recycle Group’s, two latest bodies of work including ‘Conversion’, recently exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale within the Church of Sant’Antonin and ‘Future Archaeology’ an on going body of work where the artists turn to history to address topical issues and aspects of contemporary lifestyle.
Inspired by the stream of virtual information that flows endlessly, ‘Conversion’ compares the globalisation of information networks and our need for new technologies to the historic conversion of Christianity.
