This November, Karl England will be responding to the DOLPH brief. England’s work references ideas about access and exclusion, art as commodity (cultural and financial), DIY culture, context and material as a political stance. He started Sluice__ in 2011, an art initiative that strategically adopts structures in order to showcase artist, curator and emergent discourse, projects and galleries. He describes Sluice__ as part of his extended practice. For his DOLPH exhibition he asserts:

 

  >>The self-referential delivery system reasserts itself here

The self-referential delivery system exists to decree the system as a creative act; the domestic as political; the method of dissemination as critical; narratives as defunct; meaning as evasive; cultural commodity as social; the ‘other’ as obsolete; enclosure as under attack.

 

The content is in servitude to the system, the subject is the system. Meaning attaches itself to art like lint to static. You’re the lint… or the static. No. Wait, the system is the static and you are the content, the content is lint. The static is discharged. Forget the static, the presence of the static is subjective anyway. Scratch that – the static is crucial, as is the lint. Actually, without you there is no lint. Is that right? Yes, bring your lint, for the love of all things holy, bring your lint, we’ve got a static fire-sale and we really need your lint.

 

Have I answered the brief? Have I been ‘generous’? Is everything clear? Good, see you in Bar 61, I really like their polpette.<<
