Dissolutions is an artistic research residency and exhibition project initiated by Berlin-based artist Martin Howse, curated by Peter Flemming in collaboration with OBORO and PERTE DE SIGNAL, with support from the Goethe-Institut Montréal. Dissolutions is a series of playfully experimental situations (open labs, workshops, talks, field trips) that explore the material-basis of contemporary cultures, focusing on the transition from large-scale industrial technologies to the seemingly invisible realm of the digital. This research will lead to the Montreal world premiere of an intriguing new installation by Howse.

P. Flemming, 2015

Martin Howse is occupied with an artistic investigation of the links between the earth, software and the human psyche, proposing a return to animism within a critical misuse of scientific technology. Howse constructs experimental situations (within process-driven performance, laboratories, walks, and workshops), material art works and texts. From 1998 to 2005 he was director of ap, a software performance group working with electronic waste, and pioneering an early approach to digital glitch.

Peter Flemming is a Montréal based artist and curator. As an internationally exhibiting artist, Flemming has garnered numerous merits to support both his research and creative practice. Current curatorial projects include the the Montréal premieres of Dissolutions (Fall 2016) by Berlin artist Martin Howse. He is Vice President of the Board of Directors at OBORO, and part-time Professor at Concordia University where he is principal co-facilitator of the interdisclinary art + science Embedded Research Initiative.
