Anya Stonelake/White Space Gallery is pleased to invite you to the first artist’s talk in the new space at no.13 Mason’s Yard, St James’s:
Ima g inin g W or ld O rga ns .

How does a visionary model of reality intersect with the nitty-gritty of international relations? As part of the Object Salon exhibition, Hilary
Koob-Sassen, an artist from New York, living in London and Emily Speers Mears, one of the Object Salon curators will discuss future
transnational institutions based on proposals by the artist.

Koob-Sassen will elaborate upon his new sculpture ‘1/8th slice of Filletville, a model of life in time’ to present an experimental vision based
on research into the artificial products of living cultures. Speers Mears who has recently finished work on a proposal for the international
regulation of securities, will bring her engagement with the detail of international relations into a discussion of Koob-Sassen’s ambitious
model of reality.

Hilary Koob-Sassen (born 1975, USA) works in sculpture, film, and song, and has exhibited and performed at:
Serpentine Gallery Manifesto Marathon, London; Transmediale, Berlin; South London Gallery, London; Dictionary of War, Graz.

Emily Speers Mears completed an MPhil in International Relations at Balliol College, Oxford. She is currently employed as a consultant on
the International Peace Institute's Feasibility Study for a standards implementation and enforcement framework for the global security
