July 15, 2021 - October 30, 2021
Victoria Miro is currently presenting Doug Aitken’s “Microcosmos” through October 30. “Microcosmos” features a new series of handmade fabric wall hangings, coinciding with a major new site-specific installation–Green Lens–a living experimental artwork that interacts with its ever-changing environment. From day to night, it activates a sequence of performances and conversations around the future by musicians, speakers and dancers. Aiken’s video Flags and Debris, filmed during periods of lockdown in Los Angeles 2020, will also be shown.
The artist’s work invites the viewer to consider the nature of our present and the possibilities for the future. His latest textiles are a continuation of work that is created from everyday found materials in his home. The combination of patterns stitched together with repeating elements resemble digital glitches, though the process of making is one of slow-paced craft and hand quilting. Flags, banners, mandalas, and targets convey connotations of protection, comfort and shelter.
