arebyteLASER is pleased to announce Frenzied Plainsong, the first solo show by artist George
Yarker. 
Here in the middle
Intimate yet distant
Time signatures shift
Can’t bear any closer
An aisle so far from shore.
Myth/Meme that which seems to me to be nothing more than picture languages we invent to
embody and make accessible to casual reference, our deeper shared understandings which keep
us intact as a group-so far as we are intact as a group. Inhabiting middle grey here in a hedge,
abandon all workday tones and inflections resort to this more or less frenzied plainsong a poetics
of catastrophe.
The exhibition encompasses recent work treading a verge between image and text. A publication of
poetry will also be launched at the show, entitled Bíta. To bite and split, the mouth shall lead in jest.
Overshadowing awareness of presence.
No inflection
No direction
Not strong
Not stable
Our songs are short because we know so much,
I do not know nothing.
Frenzied Plainsong is part of arebyteLASER's 2017 programme titled Hotel Generation - a series of
exhibitions by a generation of young artists from around the UK, all responding to either contemporary
Ordinaryism, information overload, collective practice or reacting to the 'extreme present'.
