Threads* sub_ʇxǝʇ Curatorial  Presents: ADATA After the Wall 

In 2017 artist Gabriel Birch visited the make-shift radio studio on the Adata Island in Plovdiv, Bulgaria as part of the sub_ʇxǝʇ residency  with ADATA AiR. Something at the base of the island ruptured  during his stay there, leaking a sinister foreshadowing of shopping  malls and  concrete car parks. We begin the programme discussing  what it might mean to occupy such a space, initially, in 2015 as  squatters, now, two years later, as artists. 

Including material from Nocturne 14 nights (Athens 2017) - Sound  Piece from Second Skin at Caustic Coastal, in collaboration with  Dean Brierley on piano. Construction of The Lost Monument, placed  on Adata 2018, Gabriel Birch in conversation with Anna Kostreva.  Readings from Utopia Deferred Jean Baudrilard and readings from  The Last Days of New Paris, China Melville
