Babylon Rising surveys work undertaken since Malone relocated to live and work in Warsaw in 2007. While most of this work has been site-specific, typically involving reproducing and re-presenting examples of localised genres, narratives and social affiliations—complicating and testing their efficacy—this exhibition seeks to draw out the more general concerns and shared aesthetic forms of the works themselves, to consider more universal dynamics of history, culture and community at large. In order to do this, works have been teased apart and in some cases radically reconfigured and, characteristically for Malone, reveal themselves as unstable and full of contingency, but also, perhaps surprisingly, containing formal motifs of pattern and painterliness, repetition and difference.
