This is the latest and last reincarnation of scaremongering.net (2003-2007). As you can see we decided to re-enter the entire selection of works and galleries since the very beginning of our initiative and ditched the whole gallery website feel altogether for a better ‘bloggish’ presentation.
With this version of our site one can truly understand the full development of our work through the years and apart from the typical documentation you all have come to expect from us we have also put in a full retrospective narration on all of our major projects and phases, warts and all!
We have come to understand that documentation is one of the most important priorities which any form of artistic project should give its utmost attention to. Now that we have started a new phase and that scaremongering.net has redefined itself in other far off territory we think it’s apt to lay our past at rest and have it all collected and explained for anyone who’s interested in it.
This was scaremongering.net.

As a conclusion to our discussion meetings and a sort of cut off point for the new path we chose to take we decided to have a solid weekend live-in together in the YCA seminar house in Buskett woods.retrospective | Comments Off
The heavy veil that had settled upon us by the end of Memento Mori did not dissipate of its own accord as we had hoped it would. This was much more than a mere tired out period after a big project. What we were facing here was a very delicate phase in which scaremongering.net could have truly died out for good. We were all conscious that there was nothing left for us to do because we had all reached our current limits and capabilities within the framework we operated in. The only option was to either repeat ourselves, which would have been nothing but the start of a short road towards utter mediocrity, or stop, take a good look in the mirror, and reinvent ourselves. Since going beyond and embracing change is something none of us are afraid of doing we decided to stop all our activities for a good period time and organize a way in which we could truly find our essential selves and reinvent scaremongering.net without losing the experience we had garnered from 2003 up to 2006.retrospective | Comments Off
“…Hmm, this is difficult. I’ve been thinking on how to formulate this and when I start thinking about the nature of my sculptures, and the mental processes that cross my mind, I feel sick. I feel that my way of being, my categorisation of reality (objects and meta-physics) is contrary to what the majority define as normal.exhibitions | Comments Off
We had been toying around with the idea of giving our website a face lift since early 2006 but we were never too fond of the ideas and designs we came up with. Even though we were still very happy with our original design we were all conscious that it had been around for three years and that it had its limitations.

If I had to describe this project in a single word it would definitely be ambitious, ambitious as fuck! Like always we started thinking about it in March and the intentions were small. The very first plans involved a small patch of abandoned land in Pembroke which consisted of a couple of small dilapidated buildings connected by a grassy path. We were thinking of doing a small exhibition this time round based more on installations and theatrical character narrations connected to the art works. The themes we had in mind were sketchy but we knew that we wanted something on life and death worked on by a small team of artists. The original target was July/August 2006 and we started doing some research on the area we wanted to use and see from where we could get all the necessary permits. Unfortunately we discovered that the land belonged to a political party and this put us off the whole thing since we never wanted to get close to those people in any way.events, exhibitions, retrospective | Comments Off
