Phase IV: Intersections – Art / Architecture

Phase IV: Intersections – Art / Architecture is an exhibition and symposium bringing together projects, stemming from higher education institutions in England and France, that explore interfaces between art and architecture. 

Phase IV is the fourth and last of a series of exhibitions led by Benet Spencer and Dr David Ryan from Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University. The earlier phases saw collaborations, in February 2018, with Institut Supérieur des Arts Toulouse for Phase II – Imagining Architecture; and, in November 2019, with École Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerranée for Phase III – le Modulor.

The first exhibition, Phase I held in February 2016 at the Ruskin Gallery, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, was developed in conjunction with Réseau Peinture, a project that fosters collaboration between European schools of art and design, initiated by artist Olivier Gourviln from École Supérieure d’Art et Design Grenoble, Valence​.​ 

In the spirit of Réseau Peinture, the project has grown to include parallel areas of research activity. Part of the development of the Phase III exhibition included ARC Modulor, a research project between staff and students which ran at the École Supérieure d’Art in Marseille from November 2018. 

The Phase IV exhibition combines a wide range of artists who have been involved at different steps of the project, including architects and artists from the Stephen Lawrence Gallery series of Art/Architecture exhibitions (held at University of Greenwich’ School of Design between 2014-19). Also featured will be contributors to Outside Architecture, an artist-led collaborative group founded in 2009 by Tim Renshaw, Bernice Donszelmann and Mary Maclean. Phase IV: Intersections – Art / Architecture marks an opportunity to gather these strands of activity, to take stock and evaluate what has become a growing discourse.

Oscillations

Monday, November 18th, 2019

This exhibition explores the fluctuation of sounds in the digital and analogue world colliding beneath a surface of discomposing imagery. Oscillations is a collaboration between Russell Duke [sound] and Mark Long [photography]. The artists use methods of digital and analogue enquiry to suspend and reconfigure the perception of our sonic and visual sensations. Through a combined practical and theoretical approach, they interrogate their modes of understanding and artistic workflows to create a space for these entities to entwine. 

The work aims to uncover the complexities and reverberating implications of working with both digital and analogue tools and how these conflate between the mediums of photography and sound design. A combination of work is presented that demonstrates the juxtaposition of interpretations and offers the viewer and listener the opportunity to reflect on sensations of intensity, displacement, stasis and flux that can be represented through visual and sonic art.

Launch event 28th November, 6 – 8 pm

Exhibition runs 28th Nov – 18th Dec 2019

Possible Architectures

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

An exhibition of non-objective, reductive and systems-based art, featuring works by Dominic Beattie, Tony Blackmore, Jyll Bradley, Tim Ellis, Hanz Hancock, Zarah Hussein, Stephen Jaques, Hans Kotter, Patrick Morrissey, Laurence Noga, Carol Robertson, Benet Spencer, Trevor Sutton, Ian Thompson.

The first experience of seeing work and its immediate impact on the viewer within an architectural context has always been a specific consideration for the curators, Patrick Morrissey and Hanz Hancock.

The curators state that the “geometric form is a language that elicits an immediate response whether in relation to work on paper, interior design, furniture design, sculpture or the wider architectural environment. Repetition, pattern and structure are recognisable and identifiable cultural signifiers, universally accessible and familiar across political and social divides.”

Geometric, systems, minimalist and non-objective art have long been associated with and regarded as typifying developments in the design movements of the early to mid-twentieth century. However, the physical, material and creative characteristics contained or displayed by the work in this exhibition – whether intended or by coincidence – reflect qualities or concerns that are still relevant to today’s rapidly changing physical and social contexts. The works chosen for this exhibition reflect these considerations and are by definition both contemplative and conceptual in the broadest sense.

Each work presented in Possible Architectures represents a constant process-led exploration of conceptual space within the developing post-minimalist universal canon and will include contextual information explaining the processes (algorithms, procedures, codes and keys) used to make them.

Private view Friday 8th November 2019, 6:00pm

SOUND/IMAGE ’19: Exploring Sonic and Audio-Visual Practice

Wednesday, October 30th, 2019

This exhibition hosted by the School of Design of the University of Greenwich explores the relationship between sounds and images, and the images which sounds can construct by themselves. Its brings together sound and visual artists to investigate sound and sound-image phenomena. Among the works featured will be installations by Christian Groothulzen and Hye Young Sin.

Exhibition held in conjunction with the 5th International SOUND/IMAGE19 conference at the University of Greenwich.
