‘Throughout the Fragment of Infinity That We Have Come to Know’ is a presentation of new works by Chris Alton. The exhibition draws upon numerous, overlapping areas of concern, including; climate change, economics, colonialism, classical mythology, and science fiction. These topics are explored through short sci-fi stories, a display of real and imagined currencies, textile banners, and a video essay.
In 2019 Chris was invited to undertake a commission with The NewBridge Project regarding the ‘solidarity economy’. The solidarity economy is defined by the shared pursuit of the following values: commitment to equal decision-making, active opposition to all forms oppression, ecological sustainability, acting in solidarity, fostering a variety of approaches, and system change. He led workshops with The Comfrey Project and Re:Co:Co – two organisations engaged with the solidarity economy – regarding alternative forms of exchange, climate change, and speculative fiction.
