EVENT NETWORK is pleased to present location,location,location ‚,
a triptych of plan drawings by Pete Gomes.
The show premieres the title piece location,location,location ‚
which will be created as a live work on the day of the opening.
location,location,location ‚ will span approximately 1km sq. and will
take existing physical urban structures and augment them into new
geometries using chalk lines and a Global Positioning System
(GPS), resulting in globally referenced longitudes and latitudes
marked onto streets surrounding the gallery.
These temporary drawn manifestations of invisible electronic
signals create navigation, boundaries, and in turn new territories.
Gomes' builds layers of points and planes which are unmistakably
architectural and stem from their urban setting.
A boundary is defined as "that which serves to indicate the limits of
anything: the limit itself"
The viewer effectively enters the work itself around Bethnal Green
Station and will be 'immersed' in it along the route towards the
gallery, where inside the works ŚHere, here...and here‚ and ŚWork,
place.‚, complete the triptych. These earlier works were made before
the description Ślocative media‚ was coined.
Gomes' locative media work prompts the viewer to re-look at their
immediate environment. Using the satellite network, Gomes plots
exact positions and times, fixing elements in his environment; both
the subject of, and the surface on which he works.
This triptych of plan drawings are the traces left from Gomes'
interaction with the immaterial network superstructure of twenty
four satellites and five ground stations that makes up the Global
Positioning System, and his physical located enivronment.
Gomes' work spans and fuses cinema, architecture and technology.
His web site www. mutantfilm.com collates his diverse output.
Recent collaborators include composers Michael Nyman and
Jocelyn Pook, Choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh, and the seminal
band Throbbing Gristle.
He has recently shown work in the UK at Tate Modern, Whitechapel,
Gimpel Fils, South Bank and ICA and also Internationally.
