Feels Like Memeplex™ is engineered by Germany-based art collective Omsk Social Club and UK-based artist Joey Holder. It is the second iteration of Memeplex™ – a group exhibition previously presented at Seventeen, London. The exhibition enacts a fictional story from a fragment of Omsk’s interactive online work The Wet Altar (2021), commissioned by Light Art Space.

“I will start by telling you a little about Memeplex™. We are a neutral hospital that specialises in neuro ops… which means we transplant a number of memes into a person’s mind over their lifespan, it typically averages at 3 times a life. These memes are from various socio-political human factions – it is at no cost to the patient but the faction must pay – some factions have their own funds, others fundraise and a few have patrons who pay for their meme-corpse plantation.” Memeplex™ from The Wet Altar, by Omsk Social Club, 2021

In this new presentation at KARST, Memeplex has been leaked through a rogue unit facility in Plymouth and has now become a publicly open entity. The facility will be open to the public in a bid to give transparent information on the last years of hospitalised meme manipulation. Secret papers, facility areas and video footage formerly used by the organisation are now on view and accessible to the public for a limited time.

Feels Like Memeplex™ is supported by the Goethe-Institut London.
