MINERALS

Tom Hackney’s recent series of work seems at first glance disparate – a collection
of working processes, media and visual styles. On closer inspection it is apparent
that these works share an address to particular structures and logic. In their broadest
interpretation, such structures include ‘the game of chess’ or ‘the pixelation of and image’.

Again, under more specific examination we see that in this case ‘the game of chess’ is
played by Marcel Duchamp, who famously is said to have abandoned art for chess,
and questions of art historical stakes are raised. Similarly, ‘the pixelated image’ explored
here is done so through the lens of an iPhone capturing an image of the face of Ptolemaic
King carved 100years BC; the pixelation occurring via an automatic face detection and
obfuscation application. Here, technologies of facial representation meet across two
thousand years of history, and a new representation of this encounter is generated.

MINERALS explores these and other structures across a carefully assembled series
of objects, images and through the accompanying artist’s notes.
