Beagles & Ramsay: PINGPINGJERKSPASM
21st October – 5th November
Sat & Sun 11 – 5pm / Mon – Fri by appointment only.
Preview: 20th October 2017, 7-9pm
The Pipe Factory is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of new work by Beagles & Ramsay.
The Reckless Eyeball
Witness a series of digital animations featuring a cast of simulated yet ecstatic proto-geriatrics gyrating to the track PINGPINGJERKSPASM (soon to be released by Nieuw Hoofdschudden Records). Uncontrollable rhythmic convulsions along with regular doses of 2000mg have prompted such enthusiastic responses.
Sculptures include a selection of battered and frayed Slabs. A calcified Ballbone, along with numerous smaller objects crafted from encrusted Polyvinyl Chloride, hand gathered dust and a fusion of reconstituted matter supplement this display.
Triumph Of Zero
A series of new large-scale prints will be exhibited, including Gum Fun Lump and Want Block Update. These works on canvas have developed out of the old bump heads mentality but shifted onwards and downwards into the ooze hive of big thoughts. Scrutinise and gape at Type IV Fun, Grunt Grunt Grunt and We Can Collide Mush. Parallel incremental sophistication.
To complete the show a selection of fresh garments for torso and limbs are available from the 2017 Headstiff Collection, which will be modeled by a team of less than willing urbanites. Lanyard accessories are guaranteed to be to the fore this season. Happy days.
Beagles & Ramsay have worked steadily to do joy complete since 1996. Their work has been exhibited widely in the UK, including shows at Transmission and Tramway in Glasgow, the ICA London, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff and the Fruitmarket, Edinburgh. They have shown internationally at venues including the Living Art Museum, Reykjavik, PS1 and the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, Migros Museum, Zurich, and the Venice Biennale. Recently their work has been included in the national survey exhibitions ‘Generation. 25 Years Of Contemporary Art In Scotland’ (2014) and ‘The Scottish Endarkenment. Art and Unreason 1945 to the Present’ (2016).
