 Erick Beltrán and Jorge Satorre, Modelling Standard (detail), 2010. Drawing by Jorge Aviña

51–63 Ridley Road, London E8 2NP

Thursday 9th September

Performance: 7pm - free but booking essential. Please e-mail

Preview: 8-9:30pm

Erick Beltrán and Jorge Satorre will show the work developed during their Gasworks residency at FormContent.

Modelling Standard takes as a point of departure the radical historiographic approach introduced by Carlo Ginzburg in the 1970s. His methodology focused on localised, popular and disregarded micro-histories rather than universal, over-arching versions. The title of the exhibition further enphasises these ideas by referencing the scientific concept of the Standard Model, used in physics to explain the almost invisible interactions occurring between subatomic particles.

The opening evening includes a lecture-performance that will introduce the concept and the narrative for the exhibition. During the event, the white walls of FormContent will be populated with drawings, texts and images that will slowly create connections between each other.

The exhibition will continue until 3 October 2010.

Modelling Standard is the first collaborative project between Jorge Satorre and Erick Beltrán, with drawings by Jorge Aviña. The project is a collaboration between Gasworks, FormContent and the Centre for Iberian and Latin American Visual Studies (CILAVS) at Birkbeck College.
