Traffic takes as theme the contrast between American ideas of the Road Movie and the romance of road culture and the European equivalent which is more involved with tailbacks, traffic, monotony and stasis. The works in the show highlight this dichotomy and deal with what has become an attitude, a way of life not just a side-effect of travel.

Sharon Kivland’s work is canny, a play with a force of imagination as it holds us hostage between our secret desires and the banal. Through her work she creates a space of highly formulised attention, an event within which the viewer is drawn like a detective, both intellectually and through desire into pleasure of the gaze.
27 June - 8 August 1998
This exhibition was inspired by the historically important and groundbreaking exhibition of 1968, ‘Cybernetic Serendipity’ which took place at the ICA in London
