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

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.

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Fast Forward to the Analogue: Vintage Immersions explores analogue choices in present-day artistic practice.

The analogue is often presented as what preceded the digital. However, the revival of analogue techniques and aesthetic bears witness to a range of practices that operate past the mere opposite of digital technologies. The exhibition examines how those choices are embedded within an interdisciplinary framework.

Launching on the evening of Tuesday 2nd July at the University of Greenwich Galleries’ Project Space, this exhibition invites artists and researchers from different disciplines to respond to the notion of the analogue as a concept and/or practice.

Works by Mihalis Arfaras, Patrick Beveridge, Eleanor Dare, Carla Garcia, Jim Hobbs, Andrew Knight-Hill, Gabriel Menotti, Dani Ploeger, Audrey Samson, Systaime, Michael Talbot, and extracts from the Cinemathèque Française.


Exhibition extended until Tuesday 3 September 2019.


Curated by Elena Papadaki.
