Event description
New video-installation by the art collective Reactor, documenting the lives of a cohort of higher spiritual beings known as The Gold Ones.

About this event

Our first exhibition of 2021 is a new installation by the art collective Reactor, presenting an imagined future inhabited by characters known as The Gold Ones. The Cosmic Care Home, where this cohort of higher spiritual beings reside, resembles what sociologist Erving Goffman would describe as a ‘total institution’; inhabitants are cut off from a wider community, leading an enclosed and bureaucratically controlled existence.

With their special powers, and particular deficiencies, The Gold Ones' interactions explore the nature of care, power and transcendence. In this performance-fiction an evolving narrative plays out, using video and performance to document the Gold Ones as they move through cycles of activity – rest, care, affirmation, breakfast, exercise, games, and treatment – so you can get to know each of them, their relationships and woo-woo beliefs.
