Introversion Immersion, until 13 July

Ever contemplated a digital detox, or worried that your closest relationship is with your phone? This could be the exhibition for you.

'Introversion Immersion' is the second solo-show by artist Tim Fishlock to run at the Stoke Newington gallery Hang-Up. This time, a site-specific installation takes over the entire downstairs 'bunker'.

The exhibition tackles the dreaded compulsions of social media with thought-provoking and playful irreverence.

Fishlock continues his shrewd comment on the fragile state of society and our place within it through his vibrant, text-based paintings, reflecting on our uneasy relationship with technology and how we are a slave to our own invention.

Seventy-two light boxes range from floor to ceiling, creating an enclosed room of words and colours ('seduce', 'provoke', 'upgrade'...) and flooding the senses with the narcissism of the online world.

Upstairs, a series of six new paintings entitled 'Satisfactory Living' are hung alongside a heavy punchbag, stitched from rich leather and appliqu├ęd with the word 'ME'.

For a show so flooded in colour and light, there's a lot of dark humour at work here.

Tim Fishlock's 'Introversion Immersion' runs until 13 July at the Hang-Up gallery.

The exhibition is free, and artworks are on sale.
