In his practice, Aitken mixes different mediums, integrating film, sound, photography, sculpture, performance, happenings, and site-specific installations. For this exhibition he presents three installations including the video work “New Era“. The exhibition aims to construct a narrative of today’s digital contemporary landscape and make the viewer interacting with the surrogates the artist created.
Aitken’s body of artwork takes the viewer into a different world, which explores ideas and takes you places that language cannot fully articulate. Through image, forms, and sound, the artworks conceptualize the idea of a current world that is completely kinetic and synchronized, yet at other times a landscape that’s vastly isolating.
