No, No, No, No is a group exhibition of sculpture, video, drawing and performance with Wojciech Bąkowski, Beth Collar, Nancy Halt, Atiéna Lansade and Dana Munro. The exhibition examines appropriation, consumption, monotony and exhaustion through different modes of labour, representation and production. Like repetition, these gestures both empty out and build charge. All the works play with ideas of individual authorship and presentation, looking at modes of labour, re-working existing artworks or complicating the layers of display and production.
Beth Collar (b. Cambridge, UK, 1984) lives and works in Berlin. Recent exhibitions and performances include A rock that keeps tigers away at Kunstverein München in Munich, Germany; Household Values at Yvonne Lambert in Berlin, Germany; Seriously, a solo show at Standpoint in London, UK; Tarantallegra at Hester, NYC; 11/50 for Fig.2 at the ICA in London, UK. She was the 2016/2017 recipient of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award and undertook a residency at RUPERT in Vilnius, Lithuania in 2015.
Dana Munro works in Brussels and London. She was an international resident at Wiels in 2015, and in 2016/17 she held the fellowship of the Hessische Kulturstiftung in Paris.
