East Wing presents Surveillance.02, an exhibition of interdisciplinary artists whose practices incorporate camera, satellite, and drone to question corporate and state surveillance, and energy production. Fuelled by curiosity, anger, and humour, these nervy artists are exploring wide-ranging methods and effects of surveillance, and remixing their findings as commentary. In particular, they grapple with the human side of the global war on terror, exposing humanity’s permanent wounding of the environment, and engaging with state systems of power and control. At the center of the tensions and anxieties they pursue are the major tangles of convenience and privacy, individual and type, freedom and security.

The exhibition includes the premiere of a new audio-visual work by UK Artist Edmund Clark, “Dulce et Decorum Est: Virtue Unmann’d’ developed in collaboration with Monica Alcazar- Duarte.
