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

Free / All welcome

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.

Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine is the first solo show about Tatty Devine exploring entrepreneurship, innovative British making, and the power of creativity. The exhibition features over 100 pieces from the past 20 years, from the early leather cuffs and piano belts to giant two-metre versions of their ‘greatest hits’ including a lobster, their magpies and a huge banana, alongside sketchbooks, photos, flyers, and two newly commissioned films.

Tatty Devine’s founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine set up a market stall in Spitalfields Market in the late 1990s. Together they challenged jewellery conventions and in 2001 a trip to New York led them to discover laser cut acrylic. At that point, a disruptive technology laser cutting unleashed a whole new set of creative possibilities and ideas.

On their return to the UK, they invested in a laser cutting machine, going on to create personality-packed jewellery much loved and still culturally relevant 20 years on. Their DIY, unknowingly anarchic approach resonated with industry and public who were hungry for something different from the commercialised, mass-produced products on offer.

Turning throwaway disposable objects like scraps of leather and guitar plectrums into jewellery not only landed the brand in Vogue magazine but also in the hearts of loyal fans all over the world. Creativity, self-expression and hand-making are at the heart of their work. Tatty Devine’s statement jewellery is constantly ahead of the curve—able to tell stories and generate conversation. Collaborations have allowed the duo to become markers of the time they were made in: Tatty Devine have worked closely with musicians, artists, designers and brands from Gilbert and George to Belle and Sebastian—all people they feel closely connected to.
