The Showroom is pleased to announce that it has commissioned juneau/projects/ to make a new body of work for presentation at the gallery during January and February 2004.

juneau/projects/ was created by artists Phil Duckworth and Ben Sadler in 1999. Based in Birmingham, juneau/projects/ have developed their practice in reaction to the status of electronic goods in contemporary culture. Their projects explore the possibilities and limitations of these common consumer items. Using the technology’s inbuilt ability to record its own destruction, juneau/projects/ practice centres upon a process of metamorphosis; in this instance destroying to create. In the past the duo have used mobile phones, computer hardware, camcorders, dictaphones and cd walkmans in their work. These consumer ‘durables’ are put under stress and in most cases actually destroyed to make sound and performance-based works.

For The Showroom, juneau/projects/ will present a series of new video and sound pieces, as part of a larger installation. Each work – surrounded by the ephemera resulting from its production – will act as a distinct chapter within the whole, suggesting that a narrative thread is present. Mapped out like a road trip, the duo will take us to the rural settings of their performance-based works and introduce us to the cast of characters that they have encountered.

juneau/projects/ have made projects for Grizedale Arts, Cumbria; Spacex, Exeter and Norwich Gallery, Norwich .Their project for The Showroom will be juneau/projects/ first solo show in London. For further information please contact Kirsty Ogg or Bridget Crone on 020 8983 4115.
