Sting is proud to announce their forthcoming show, Appetite for
Domination at Trelick-Eight Studios, West London.
Domination is an exhibition presenting the work of newly formed graphic
design studio Bite and Sting. The show aims to explore the cross
over between graphic design, contemporary art and youth culture in the
fresh and industrial looking Trelick-Eight Studios in West London.
Whilst serving as a showcase for the company, Appetite for Domination will
also include collaborations with varying artists and art forms ranging
from jewellery to graffiti; music to architecture and
Domination refers to the globalisation of branding, marketing and
corporate domination. Logos, the holy crests of consumer culture
spread and mutate the world over constantly breeding and reproducing. The
imagery within the show uses the world of insects with their own bite and
sting as the visual translation of this idea. Crawling across
canvases and prints or presented in statuesque display cases, the insect
appears and reappears in varied forms. Allied to this are street art
references and modes of presentation: the street logos of contemporary
consumer culture produced by our own urban insects. This fusion then
finds form in a selection of images, prints and installations that itself
has branding at its core.
The work will aim
to display the versatility of Bite and Sting through collaborations
bringing in differing styles, references and techniques whilst
offering an aesthetic that is unique to the studio. Whilst fine art
references can be found in some of the poster art on display or in the
screen printing that reveals both artistic obsession and ability, the show
is essentially an exercise in innovative and intriguing graphic
awareness. From concept to final form Appetite for Domination
introduces Bite and Sting as a studio aware and in control of the mutating
world of illustration, graphics and branding.
