Daylight Saving

For their spring/summer show 2016, XAP inhabit the old deli and the flat above at Geddes Gallery, taking as a point of departure ideas around time, making (un)subtle interventions with and around the leftovers from the last occupants of the building.


In the store room, two lobster-sized electronic creatures roam – their remit to act out their part in the creation myth…  Elsewhere, cobwebs are transported from another home and placed in delicate thread display cases…  Empty catheter boxes line the deli shelves…  A collector’s hoard of used train tickets form an index, a catalogue, a demarcation of specific journeys in time…

May 2016, Geddes Gallery, 26 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, London.
