Happy End / A Transmitter To the Ultimate Way of Contemporary Living

Every Wednesday from May to July, Basement Art Projects present a preview of different artists’ work and a series of music, film, theatre and participatory events.

at Guest Projects

The exhibition features works by international artists: Andro Semeiko, Yu-Chen Wang, Alasdair Duncan, Pil and Galia Kollectiv, Ad de Jong, Sheena Macrae, Astali and Peirce, Andrew Darke, Lakis and Aris Ionas, Sebastian Lowsley-Williams and Tomoko Takahashi, and includes performance by Oliver Langdon and Caroline Garland from Kilter Theatre and a film programme curated by Georgia Korossi.

Happy End takes its starting point from a semi-fictional story about Andro Semeiko and Yu-Chen Wang’s life and a journey to reach never-ending happiness. The story is based on the construction of a transmitter – a complex mechanical device that enables transportation to authentic happiness. As the device is developed it becomes apparent that the transmitter is more than a machine; it is a space, a unique experience and the ultimate way of living.

Happy End will evolve through weekly previews of different artists’ work and a series of music, film, theatre and participatory events. Individual and collective contributions will combine to influence the changing content and shape of the project. After the exhibition, the transmitter will continue to live on in shared experience, ideas and relationships.

The exhibition is curated by Yu-Chen Wang and assisted by Molly Bretton.
