In 2020 the Gazell.io Project Space was launched to provide digital artists with a platform to showcase their works physically at a commercial gallery. Programming of the space will change on a monthly basis to offer fresh perspectives.
Current Exhibition in the Project SpaceJake Elwes | Zizi- Queering the Dataset
The Gazell.io Project Space will be taken-over by multimedia artist Jake Elwes throughout July. Elwes will bring his Artificial Intelligence project ‘Zizi - Queering the Dataset’ to the recently launched digital art space on Dover Street. The ongoing project, which started in 2019, explores the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and drag performance. While Drag challenges gender and delves into the concept of otherness, A.I. is often mystified as a tool which perpetuates social bias. Elwes’ evolving project intends to celebrate individuality and encourage its audiences to reflect on the biases that exist within our data driven society.
Elwes will present a performance piece on the evening of 29th July during his residency.

Shi Zheng | Free Fall12th April - 12th May 2021
Gazell.io presents Shi Zheng’s Free Fall in the Gazell.io Project Space, an initiative launched in 2020 to provide digital artists with a platform to showcase their works physically at a commercial gallery. Shi Zheng’s video installation will be presented on large-scale towering screens in the space throughout April. Free Fall is a dual-channel video installation co-produced by media art group RMBit for the solo exhibition ‘Bitclave’ at Imagokinetics, Hangzhou. Two vertically connected display panels have constituted a narrow perspective of the work in which pure white sheet masks simulated by computer keeps falling downward. Another layer in the work consists of a computer vision recognition system that surveils and detects the moving image. The facial recognition system identifies whether the image of each falling sheet mask matches the features of the human face. The floating values between 0 and 1 in the blue bounding box represent the approximation value of “human” identified by the machine compared to “real human."
