Functional Dysfunctional

Lamps made from household utensils, musical instruments from junk, objects with a previous life serving a new purpose. Or maybe something that looks as though it does something but in actual fact, does nothing at all. Clothing, accessories or even games made from unlikely materials, there‘s a wide range in this one. The collection will be added to over the period of the show, so one visit will probably not be enough. Exhibition opens Saturday 15th Feb but …..

Private view on Saturday 22nd of Feb, 3pm till 7pm. All most welcome. This is where ZUZUSHII hits lifestyle, you need to see, touch and feel.

An exploration into the life and works of Russian, absurdist writer Daniil Kharms (1905-1942). Interpretations through sounds, words and visual art.

Angry, frustrated, analytical and satirical, but always in awe of the absurd manifestation we call human society, the works of Daniil Kharms (1905-1942, Russia) bring to the front of our collective consciousness a final, desperate image of the human condition: a well-oiled machine driving insatiably towards the edge of oblivion. Daniil Kharm’s reality is filled with the intricate observations of men and women struggling to grasp the logic of their predicaments. Failed by the tools of reason and the grace of government they find salvation in the absurd. With it’s incisive irony and bitter-sweet satire the absurd has the power to make sense of the last vestiges of humanity, where everything else has failed.

Interestingly enough, it is a way of seeing the world that is at least as relevant today as it was in Soviet-era Russia. In a society obsessed with its own self-importance, Daniil Kharms’s words resonate with ever more insight as we struggle to come to terms with our own delusional predicament. In Kharms Way presents a snapshot of this reality, animated and shot into the present via the eager, intense vocalisation, saxophone playing and puppetry of Ted Milton and Sam Britton’s deconstructed, rewired laptop computer.

ZUZUSHII ART LABORATORY, the long time creative workshop of Fumico Azuma and Tim Can. Found objects and a conscience feed two and three dimensional constructions, illustrations from the box of humanity. Utilitarian, provoking and open to interpretation. Poignant and darkly comical. Various works will be available to view in the main bar and back room gallery space.
