Would you like to come back to our hut, Backlit group show

Uncategorized July 20, 2017

BACKLIT presents its annual group show, which views the gallery as a former set for Auf Wiedersehen Pet, a comedy-drama television programme about a group of British migrant construction workers.
The exhibition features video, sculpture and performance that will take the viewer on a journey around the building as it is re-imagined as a fictitious location for ‘Ally Fraser’s Hideout’, a place for unlawful business in the hit 80’s series.
The works will explore notions of architectural space, transposed narratives, phantasma, and correlations with the current socio-political climate.

Featuring work by Jade Annaw, Ellen Brady, Connor Brazier, Matthew Chesney, Joey Holder, Daniel Rapley, Martin Rayment, Mo Scott, and Suzanne van der Lingen.

I’ll be your mirror

Uncategorized June 16, 2017


‘I’ll be your mirror’, a solo show presented as part of slice, curated by Emma McKinney at Stryx, Birmingham.

slice is a platform; fleeting and fluctuating. A programme of monthly interventions/exhibitions/displays, the project aims to provide opportunities for emerging artists to share their work with the city of Birmingham.
Happening on-top-of | alongside | beneath | between; slice works around Stryx’s existing gallery programme as an exercise in being resourceful, negotiating space and sharing/layering territories.

‘I’ll be your mirror’ is inspired by extramission, the Pre-Socratic theory that eyes emit rays of light to achieve vision.

‘Vulpecula’ and ‘Ellipsis’ to be screened as part of Eastside Projects ESP’s curated selection for nawki.

nawki or ‘not as we know it’ began last year, with the intention to experiment with the art fair model, each iteration shifts its focus to a different framework with a selection of arts organisation/spaces across the UK invited to participate, resulting in a cross-
organisation collaborative outcome.

this year the fair will take the form of an artist film screening, experimenting with a platform specifically for digital, time-based works, where the show’s constraints are responsive to the medium, becoming primarily durational, as opposed to physical.
each organisation is invited to contribute a segment of digital and video artwork, that will be compiled to make a two hour long showcase, with each slot as the organisation’s respective ‘exhibition’.

the resulting video will be screened simultaneously, at every participating space throughout the UK on 13th July starting at 6.30pm.

In 2017 nawki’s participating organisations are:
CBS Gallery
Eastside Projects ESP
Focal Point Gallery
Ladette Space
The White Pube

‘Endnotes’ is part of the MAP ‘Footnoting the Archive’ project curated by guest editors Suzanne van der Lingen & Claire Walsh for Edinburgh Art Festival 2016 and includes new work by Peter Amoore (with Raphael Rubinstein), Annet Dekker, Aideen Doran and Victoria Horne. ‘Endnotes’ is presented as a limited edition publication designed by Osasto and as a series of online commissions on the MAP website. Copies of the printed publication are available throughout EAF 2016 at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and the EAF kiosk (9-11 Blair Street).

Responding to the theme of endnotes, and coinciding with the completion of the MAP online archive, Amoore, Dekker, Doran and Horne examine methods of approaching archives as creative, active platforms rather than static repositories of documented content. Each propose critical approaches to archiving, contemporary art and digital production.

The programme includes a discussion event on 13 August, 14:00-17:00, at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). Contributors present their research as part of a discussion chaired by writer and curator, Jenny Brownrigg. The event forms part of van der Lingen and Walsh’s micro residency at ECA School of Art, 1-26 August. Tickets available via eventbrite.
