Current Exhibitions

Skin Job
26th February- 13th March 2011
Preview: Friday 25th February 2011

Curated by Andrew Bryant
James Prevett, Niklas Tafra, Chad Burt, Daniel Lichtman, Ciarán Ó Dochartaigh, Adrianna Palazzolo and Miguel Pacheco

Saturday 26th February, 3.30-5pm: Artists and Curators in Dialogue

Skin Job, which is slang for replicant in Ridley Scott's 1982 classic sci fi film Blade Runner, considers whether technology is something external to us, something we can chose to pick up and use, or is it already in us, a part of us, in our tongues, our brains, under our skin?

Skin Job, curated by Andrew Bryant, brings together seven artists to explore the ways in which technology, whether it be a high tech recording device, a lowly mallet and chisel, or that most insidious of technologies, language itself, seems to both liberate and ensnare us.

Extra-Ordinary

Alyson Helyer, Tom Butler and Marion Michell
Curated by Rosalind Davis and Jane Boyer
23rd April to 8th May 2011
Private View: 22nd April 2011, 6.30 – 9pm

The work of Tom Butler, Alyson Helyer and Marion Michell forms a strange symbiosis, a disjointed world of macabre coexistence that holds humour, ambiguity, intensity and contradiction.

Each artist explores identity and the psyche, the real and the unreal, showing us places, where, if we look, we may feel discomfort, anxiety and self-consciousness. The anguish of memory resurfaces as a physical representation.
The works inter-connect through the subversion of media, explorations of the potency of hair, domesticity, family and deformity creating a world of memento mori that contradictorily holds vitality; it is a vitality which draws strength and force from ‘the other’. But there is a symbolic death in these works; the death of mortification, the death of being other, the death of being bound, isolated and invisible, the death of assimilation (at any cost).

The world these works inhabit is only ostensibly our world. Theirs is a world on the ... [ Read all ]
