Cécile B. Evans
AMOS’ WORLD: Episode One
From March 23, 2018 to July 01, 2018 | Mumok, Wien

In her work, Cécile B. Evans examines the significance and role of emotion in contemporary societies as well as the increasing influence of new technologies on our feelings and actions.

For her forthcoming show at mumok, Evans created an architectural video installation. AMOS’ WORLD is conceived as a television show set in a socially progressive housing estate. The show, divided into episodes, follows an architect called Amos and the inhabitants of the housing estate. Viewers are first introduced to Amos and some of the tenants, each individual interwoven into the larger infrastructure of Amos’ building.

His comfortable perch takes a turn when his perfect individual-communal fantasy for the Capitalist age begins to crumble as the tenants fail to conform to the behaviours he had envisaged. Fissures in this carefully constructed network reveal a breakdown of person-to-person and person-to-infrastructure power dynamics.

Seemingly free from the pressures of an outside environment but with a visibly constricted view – how has the networked age impacted the irreconcilable gap between individual rights and the controlling nature of the systems that create them?
