Hunger

 

Hunger is a multidisciplinary politicised exhibition by The Tunnel. Each exhibition uses a piece of text or film as a base to build a structure of ideas. The title of the exhibition is derived from Knut Hamsun's 1890 novel of the same name. The work in the exhibition orbits around the text and does not necessarily relate directly to the book.

In essence the show is about a single word; Hunger. Some of the artists in the show have interpreted the word in a political way to reflect the current economic and cultural crisis in England since the 23rd of June 2016. Other artists have taken a more psychological approach.

This is a collaborative exhibition featuring work that is created by using the cut-up technique. The artist subject is personal to them the only requirement is that they use this technique to create the final work.
The Cut-up technique can be traced back to the poet Tristan Tzara of the Dadaists. It was later used by Gil Wolman of the Letterist International in the 1950's. It was further developed by the painter Brion Gysin who in turn introduced it to William S. Burroughs at the Beat Hotel in 1959. Burroughs used this method to create the infamous Naked Lunch(1959) and also in the Nova trilogy. William S Burroughs and Brion Gysin published a book entitled The Third Mind in 1977 which featured various cut ups. David Bowie used this technique to create lyrics so did Thom Yorke of Radiohead who used a similar method on the album Kid A(2000).
