Dan Mitchell
 “Stalinnism” 
Lastekodu 1, Tallinn 
6pm - 9pm

Featuring a large amount posters re-enacting London’s fly-posting advertising, photographs of the artists as Joseph Stalin, and a flag, Dan Mitchell’s exhibition at the gallery’s Lastekodu space is based on the book The Coming Insurrection - The Invisible Committee (Semiotexte, 2009) and the ultra-left broadcasts on Novara Media. The work is designed to act as a trolling influence on the audience, and uses doubt, humour and fear to coordinate the sense that one is lost in the present situation as comfort in our distractions. This leaves us nowhere to go but into each other’s arms.

Dan Mitchell lives and works in London and has shown widely; LimaZulu, Gagosian, Christie’s, Kunstwerk.  He is a founding member of Poster Studio (1994 - 1997) and also the publisher of Hard Mag, the specialist magazine that is ‘beyond reason’. Generally his work is generated on computers and rendered on paper in the forms of posters, magazine and prints; Taking the form of assemblages of culled images (from the web, magazines, posters, film and photography), Mitchell’s work is concerned with the psychopathology of everyday life and the obsessions that lie within us all that drive us to shape the world.

 

Mike Levitt
