“It’s such shit! HEAVY METAL RULES. Heavy metal rules. All that punk shit sucks. It doesn’t belong to us. It belongs on Mars, man. What the hell was punk shit? And Madonna! Madonna can go to hell as far as I’m concerned. She’s a dick. Seriously… heavy metal definitely rules. Poison Sister, Judas Priest, Dokken, Ozzy, Scorpion; they all rule! Yeah, she’s tripping Jack Daniels, it all rules, all that shit rules. This punk circle, circle of shit and the dicks and all, that can go to hell. I don’t care. You know, I don’t really give a shit about that kind of punk-fuck.”
“Shred”, is a group exhibition comprising of 7 artists work, exploring the periods after reactionary politics where apathy towards power and culture are employed. Reams of information are destroyed and censored in efforts for no one to see. Ideological pasts are distanced and nihilism is enforced as a defence mechanism.
