Running Time: Wed 12 June - Sun 28 July, (open daily)

About this event

‘Vague but exciting’ was how those in the know first described the World Wide Web (WWW) back in 1989. Thirty years later in 2019, it has transformed our world. To mark this, our new exhibition showcases the work of Systaime, one of the most emblematic digital artists using the web as their main tool, who has been working in this medium for over 20 years.

Systaime is the creator of The French Trash Touch movement, which mixes low and high culture and pop culture with internet folklore, like memes, emojis or GIFs.

He offers an explosive mashup of internet aesthetics, where information, images and comments are remixed in an audiovisual spectacle that exposes the language of the internet.

The solo show H4ppy D33p W3b (Happy Deep Web) is a visual journey through today’s digital pop culture.

Open your minds and take a deep dive into the universe of the web…


Launch & Gallery Tour: Wed 12 June, 6.30-8.30pm
