The exhibition Keep Me Updated Your Holiness introduces Recycle Group’s two latest bodies of work ‘Conversion,’ which was recently exhibited within the Church of Sant’Antonin at the 56th Venice Biennale, and ‘Future Archaeology,’ an on-going body of work addressing topical issues and aspects of contemporary lifestyle in relation to history.
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. Proposing the Internet as a new vehicle for faith, a belief system where advice on everyday problems, health and assistance with technical issues is sought online.
As the introduction to the series within a much larger body of work titled ‘Future Archaeology’, the duo have created an interactive robotic figure, which assists the viewer with the viewing of a set series of fifteen photographs, individually selected by the robot.
