Mishka Henner in conversation with Daniel Rourke, discussing various readings and misreadings of Black Diamond, Henner's first solo exhibition with Carroll / Fletcher. The conversation will cover many areas including the status of artistic appropriation in a global information economy, the similarities between theatre and post-production, and whether it is the duty of the artist to express a moral position through their work.

 

Mishka Henner (b.1976) is one of the UK's most significant artists working with and interrogating the photographic medium. His appropriative practice explores the use and value of photography and its relationship with contemporary experience. Black Diamond brings together four distinct but interrelated series of work, based on the collection and mediation of publicly available information sourced through social media, the internet and drones, and considers the way in which these technologies are used by the government, intelligence agencies and corporations. Henner explains: 'I'm exploiting loopholes in the vast archives of data, imagery and information that are now accessible to us, connecting the dots to reveal things that surround us but which we rarely see or don't want to see.'


Daniel Rourke (b.1982) is a writer, educator and artist based in London. His work is concerned with re-articulating the digital in light of current debates surrounding posthumanism. His writing has appeared at Rhizome, Furtherfield, Alluvium Journal and AfterImage. Follow him on twitter @therourke and elsewhere machinemachine.net.
