The ‘Repair’, ‘Recycle’ and ‘Remove’ voting stickers for Engine Of Growth have arrived. The work is installed next week in time for the #PARKTALES festival on 20-21 August at Thorpe Meadows, Peterborough.
Not Here opened last night at Radiant Space, Plymouth.
My work for the show is Refuge, a large nest made from found materials bound together with a continuous line of rope. The work was partially built for the opening night and I will be completing the build over the next few days, inviting visitors to bring objects to be included in the nest.
Day 2 of Resistance install and despite the rain we got loads done.
EDIT: Due to unforeseen circumstances the work will now be installed during the week of 9 May, with an opening event at midday on 14 May.
Due to difficulties in getting permission to site the work at Swansea Castle my installation has been relocated to the National Waterfront Museum. Because of the move I have had to rethink the entire piece and have spent the last few weeks redeveloping the work. See the work page for more information.
It will be installed on the week of 4 April.
Together we will be seeking to ‘reinvigorate [the] substantial public sculpture collection at Thorpe Meadows by [creating] new temporary art works and interventions. These resulting new commissions will be showcased at a weekend of new festival activity surrounding the sculptures in August 2016.’
I have a new, temporary, workspace courtesy of Floating Island Gallery.
A number of Bristol-based artist have use of an empty 4 storey office building in the centre of the city. We’ll be using it over the next several weeks to try out new work and ideas.
The exhibition consists of ten artists nominated by ten people who have been involved with the gallery since its inception in 2006. The show opens on 4 March and continues until 2 April 2016. More info here.
