Amanda Beech: Covenant Transport Move or Die

  • 21 October 2016 — 29 January 2017 *on now

Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and BALTIC are pleased to present the UK premiere of Amanda Beech's Covenant Transport Move or Die, 2016.

This five channel video installation delivers a heady mix of analogue-style pop and video game aesthetics, featuring five characters who form a workerist crew comprising manager, worker, programmer, consumer, and dealer. Covenant Transport Move or Die conjures an opposing landscape that is at once mobile and heavy, quick and brutal. The exhibition also includes a number of new copper plates.

The exhibition has been initiated and developed by Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland, and is being shown at BALTIC as part of a joint project between both venues.

The exhibition also features a new essay on the artist's work by Reza Negarestani.

Supported by Sunderland City Council, Arts Council England, Newcastle University and Cal Arts.
