A Territorial Gobbing show gives the feeling that anything is possible. Detritus toots and crackles, conventional sources of sound become food becomes prop for visual slapstick, sounds stop as abruptly as they start, while buttons are pressed and knobs are twiddled with a compromising fervency that makes a mockery of efficiency and at a speed that makes it impossible to take time for contemplation. Territorial Gobbing has cultivated a life-affirming, gleefully irreverent act that isn’t just funny as fuck but sounds banging.
Rob Lye is a member of Chora. His broad practice spans sculpture, performance, painting, spatialised sound and video.
Recent releases include ‘Modern Living’ (2021) Takuroku, ‘UN’ Stairwell Editions (2021). He has exhibited and performed internationally in venues such as TATE Britain, Cafe Oto, Whitechapel Gallery, APT Gallery, Iklectik, OUTPOST, ASC, FUSE and Caraboo.
gulpXL is a performance duo brought to you by Pádraig Condron and Charlie Dean. "We are best friends who make work together because we feel okay exploiting each other without it being weird. We're really trying sincerely and also hope to come across totally irreverent - like an off duty supermodel on a balcony, somewhere hot. Our work is often messy, caring, wet, desperate and not to be trusted."
