Obsidian Coast enters into a state of indeterminacy with its second exhibition, While the Summit Reverses.

This is a show about beginnings without endings that begins on the 16th of February 2019. A show that begins, when shattered glass glimmers under fluorescent lights on the floor of a South East London gallery. A show that begins, when a detached boat hook folds into the muddy depths of the river Thames. A show that begins in September 1977, when Philip K. Dick gives a speech at the Science Fiction Convention in Metz. A show that begins Obsidian Coast’s collaborations with Louis Mason, Rachel McRae and nova Milne.

Purple light, ambient like a perpetual sunset, fills the (night)time at the Coast. The air is hot, saturated with longing for moments of intimacy – the kinds of coming together in which outlines of bodies dissolve, and the familiar laws of space and time collapse. Diamond skin and long-lost-lovers drift on waves to the shore, and things previously unencountered make their first moves on land.

While the Summit Reverses is a suspended moment, the cusp of infinite possibility, in which multiple timelines align, the spaces we once thought we knew become unfamiliar and the separation between bodies and objects is undone.
