DEATH BE KIND is excited to present HEXEN 2.0 by London based artist Suzanne Treister

Suzanne is a pioneer in digital and new media making work using video, the Internet, interactive technologies, photography, drawing and watercolour. Past work has visioned a 'brave new world', merging the virtual and the real, fact and fiction, engaging with eccentric narratives and unconventional bodies of research to reveal structures that bind power, identity and knowledge.

HEXEN 2.0 draws on diverse historical and contemporary information from philosophy, the counterculture, science and science fiction, cybernetics, government and military systems as a means of understanding the world we now inhabit. A Tarot Deck forms the major part of HEXEN 2.0, offering the
possibility to symbolically challenge and reconfigure these frameworks. This reimagining casts shadows of doubt on what is or could be, and creates a space for reflection and construction of hypothetical future narratives.

This solo exhibition by influential artist Suzanne Treister is a significant marker for DEATH BE KIND, and seen through the lens of occult belief systems her work represents an exciting and imaginative reading of our times.


In the office space, Naomi Eller's clay sculptural works titled The fates at play deal with destiny through stories and representations from classical antiquity like that of Le Parcae or The Fates the Goddesses of fate who personified our inevitable destiny. Nona, Decima and Morta each spun, mesured and cut the metaphorical thread of life. Naomi describes her work;

The ongoing dialogue that we have and the weight of our existence as mortals. Signs and symbols that hold representations to help us seek clarification. Birds since antiquity have often symbolised ephemeral beings, but I see them as reflections of ourselves and our own mortality in nature and our yearnings for a greater trust in the inevitable abstraction that is life, the fates: Le Parcae hold this in their hands.

To celebrate the opening Gala and Elvira will offer Tarot Card readings to interested individuals in The Alderman bar downstairs.

Suzanne Treister has been funded by Arts Council of England
