1 January 2016 – 1 January 2019
Possessions_inc. is a video project by Richard Grayson for Matt’s Gallery. A new episode in the series was posted online once a month over 2016 – 2019.
Possessions_inc. touches on ideas of value, the agency of objects, robotics, techno animism, ecstatic states, ventriloquism, the operations of the internet, money, codes, the art-market, secret knowledge and mytho-mania. It is part t.v. series, part blog and part extended essay.
Possessions_inc. is the talking head of a sculpture of a devil that stands at the door of a church in South West France.
Two essays were commissioned for the project: To Be Spoken Like A Thing by Lars Bang Larsen and Possessed and Erik Davis' Whispers of the Deamon by Erik Davis.
