Co-working spaces, newsrooms as factories for the post-factual era and logistics centres of online megastores are the focus of interest of Irish artist Yuri Pattison (*1986, lives in London). Pattison's artistic world, which includes routers, humidifiers, surveillance cameras, office plants and cheap replicas of design classics, moves between the sculptural and digital and plays with control mechanisms. With his immersive, multimedia installation «Trusted Traveller» Yuri Pattison is transforming Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen into a projection surface for the contemporary world. By intervening as a programmer he spectacularly confronts the public with spaces, materials and themes that define today's reality.
