BEARSPACE, in association with peer sessions, is pleased to present a series of two exhibitions entitled The Assistant starting in May 2010. Each exhibition will pair up an emerging and an established artist with similar concerns, who will collaborate to produce the exhibition. The established artist will send the emerging artist or assistant a list of rules one month prior to the exhibition opening.

The Assistant aims to explore the practices of both artists through this process of exchange, but also to question ideas around the construction of an exhibition, revealing something about the processes an exhibition may go through before it is finally realised.

A weblog will accompany the exhibition, including the original list of rules and documentation of the process of exchange and decision making that has led to the creation of the work, and interaction from the public is invited. The resulting exhibitions will last for two weeks each, with the blog, a discussion and a screening of pe... [ Read all ]

Private View: Friday 25th June 2010 6.30-8.30pm

Open: Wed-Sat 10am-6pm

BEARSPACE is pleased to present the works of Isabel and Caspar Rock in a collaborative exhibition, for which the two sibling artists have created a series of large scale drawing works, collaborative pieces, animation and sculpture, drawing the viewer in their phychadelic world of pencils, pens and paper.
The works featured in Eye Pain are incredibly detailed and vivid. These dense, richly textured images are the result of years of development by both Isabel and Caspar Rock, and this is reflected in the level of aesthetic depth that the pieces offer, the audience encountering new elements within the works on each viewing. The pair site their influences broadly; these include comics, Japanese animations, Gothic architecture, medieval  gangsta rap, mythology and Dantes Infernoe. Eye Pain itself refers to the physical experience that each of the pieces offer the viewer, the works themselves so beautiful and complex, that they become difficult to look at.

Previous Exhibitions

MECHA - Seung Pyo Hong (solo exhibition) @ BEARSPACE

10 April 2010 - 08 May 2010

Private View: 09 April 2010
6.30 - 8.30pm

BEARSPACE is pleased to present MECHA, new large scale drawings and metal plate etchings by Korean artist Seung Pyo Hong, in his first ever solo exhibition.

Hong has created a range of new works for the exhibition. Having previously worked in a variety of mediums, including installation, oil pastels and etching, Hong has produced a collection of hand drawings and paintings, combining a number of production methods creating his own personal style.

His work depicts complex imagery of the organic and the mechanical. Hong believes that our habitat is now made up of technology and machinery, as opposed to a natural environment. This environment is affective and influential within our lives, eventually becoming our reason for evolution. The artist has created a comment on the current social and economic world, through the anthropomorphism of the machinery he depicts. He presents ideas of conflict, opposition, metamorphosis and process.
