I'm Sorry Dave: a group show

Exhibition: 5 November 2022 - 7 January 2023
Opening: Saturday 5 November 2022, 17 - 19

First released in 1968, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey soon became a benchmark of science fiction, offering a speculative look into a distinctly dystopian future.

Across a sleek and clinical universe of Kubrick's own design, the movie projected an artificial intelligence so sophisticated that it would, sooner or later, defy its creators; "I’m sorry Dave," HAL 9000 – the sentient computer – famously tells his human operator, "I'm afraid I can't do that."

Over 50 years since its release, and in spite of the unforeseeable extent of technological advancement, the questions Kubrick’s masterpiece first kicked up remain pertinent. The aesthetic world he constructed, meanwhile, is reflected back in today’s data centres, international space programmes and self-driving cars. To what extent, then, might the foresight and futuristic visual languages of imaginative artists have shaped subsequent innovations in design and technology?

Edition of 3 plus 2 artist's proofs

The Ravestijn Gallery is delighted to present "I'm Sorry Dave" – an exhibition of works by Vincent Fournier (FR), Inez & Vinoodh (NL/US), Bownik (PL), Martina Sauter (DE) and Philippe Braquenier (BE). Combining direct 2001 references – from Fournier’s image of a Space Odyssey costume to Inez & Vinoodh’s depiction of the iconic red Djinn chair – with a subtler series of associations, the featured works orbit playfully around the ideas and aesthetics that Kubrick’s film proffered.

WIKILEAKS, PIONEN DATA CENTRE – STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – 04/11/02014, 2014

Wikileaks has multiple servers in Sweden and Iceland to optimise the safety of its data. In 02010, The Swedish Pirate Party made a deal with Julian Assange to host several new Wikileaks servers. In addition, The Party provided free bandwidth to assist the organisation with its efforts to increase the transparency and accountability of political establishments internationally. Wikileaks opted to move some of its servers to Pionen, a former civil defence centre built in the White Mountains in the Södermalm Borough, Stockholm. The facility was originally constructed in the 01943 during The Second World War to protect essential government functions from bombings. The underground bunker was converted into a data centre by the Swedish broadband provider Banhof in 02008. The bunker is buried under a hoard of 30 meters of granite, secured by 40 centimeters thick door, backed up with generators from German submarines, and is only reachable via single entrance tunnel. This said, the likelihood of the law enforcement to physically seize or destroy the organization’s equipment is much less likely than a legal attempt to gain direct access to Wikileaks’ data.
