London’s Marlborough gallery recently launched a multi-room immersive installation entitled ‘Colony Sound’ by artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe. The massive showcase features a total of eleven rooms ranging from a telecommunications retail outlet to a half-incinerated recording studio. One of the more eye-catching spaces is a drop-out lounge made entirely out of homemade ceramics. “In this exhibition, Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe riff on the historical narratives surrounding The Smile to create a sprawling architectural intervention that oscillates between the habitats of the counterculture and the sites of technological invention,” said the gallery in a statement.
Tour ‘Colony Sound’ above and then visit Marlborough’s website for further details. The installation is on view until October 19.
In other sprawling presentations, take a look inside the “Tokyo Pop Underground” exhibition hosted by NANZUKA at Jeffrey Deitch’s New York City spaces.

Creating numerous alternative realities, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe’s immersive installation COLONY SOUND comments on ideologies of surveillance, communication, counter-culturalism, consumerism and conspiracy theories. These abundantly rich narratives make for an equally rich visual experience – one that is neither representative, a façade or even a fake-reality, but one that converges all these ideas into one – 11 room installation. On view in London until October 19.
