A Short Grand Tour

Professor Simon Olding writes about Jim Hunter’s featured watercolours in the publication accompanying A SHORT GRAND TOUR, detailing the time he spent in Venice:

"In Jim Hunter’s Venice studies he explores the potential of watercolour and its meaning within the context of contemporary practice. He responds to the historical and cultural heritage of Venice and he raises a number of questions on the role of the artist and parallels with earlier artists in the landscape ‘tradition’: questions of pictorial and cultural representation, appropriation, topographical portrayal and Romantic ideals”.

This publication exemplifies Hunter’s recent watercolours and celebrates the freedom of expression found within ambiguity.

All Flesh is Grass

An exhibition where John Hopkins, and Grenville Davey display drawings, sculpture and a projection of the Olympic park. The publication includes a 3D pocket exhibition and CD-ROM, along with drawings, essays and song lyrics by the artists. It also presents the artists in conversation with author of Art In Question (2003) Karen Raney.

John Hopkins is a landscape architect, urban designer and environmental planner, while Grenville Davey is an artist and sculptor who has worked with landscape artists involved in regeneration projects in the UK.

The exhibition questions the power of landscape and art, with emphasis on what we rely upon to live. A commentary is sparked by the contrast between the physical (soil, water, vegetation) and the emotional (joy, fear, sadness). That both the artists are concerned with landscape art and architecture and its ability to enhance a community makes the relationship between the stadium and the public more human.

Karen Raney’s interview discusses the importance of promoting creativity when thinking about sustainability, the transitory nature of human life and the temporality of drawing in an era where realising projects such as the Olympic Park is possible, but has a great impact on our environment. The publication also includes a manifesto by John Hopkins.

Borderlands

Artists Christian Edwardes and Tom Hall along with writers Lee Mackinnon and Frank Brown present Borderlands; an exhibition that examines boundaries. The text analyses the edge of systems and the hinterland between places and social classifications, opposing in nature the two artists works.

That boundaries can be physical as well as verbal is explored in the interplay between personal narrative and statistical fact, solid form and conceptual suggestion. Edwardes’ and Hall’s works are forced together to deal with the notion of the reaction to difference.


The publication includes an informative essay Postcode Warfare in Contemporary Urban Britain by Frank Brown who looks objectively at social boundaries. This is complemented by Lee Mackinnon’s Landings: a wholly subjective and narrated exploration of the same topic.

Curated by Simon Besson, Crab by the Sea illustrates a period of continuous architectural activity led by professor Sir Peter Cook RA which began in 1953 and is on-going in his CRAB studio space where he works alongside Gavin Robotham.
As an inaugural event to celebrate the opening of the new gallery at the Arts University College Bournemouth Crab by the Sea reinforces the links between thinking and making. By welcoming back a former student whose sideways look at architecture owes much to seaside heritage, reflection is stimulated in Bournemouth’s bicentenary year.
With text by Professor Oren Lieberman which explores the importance of imagination in drawing as a response to our environment, but also as a catalyst towards the transformative.

In no particular order

In no particular order: painting as metaphor for presentness, is an exhibition of paintings by Simón Granell with the writings of Kathleen Abiker and curated by Josepha Sanna. The collaboration is an exploration into the process of painting as metaphor for presentness and into what it means to be stuck, unable to act: a reason to create or a reason to stop. The work does not merely reflect the process of painting but is about the method of painting; it is evidence of an act, but of process interpreted by gesture.

Kath Abiker studied Fine Art at the Slade School in London and subsequently completed a research led MA in the History and Theory of Modern Art at Chelsea School of Art. She is Course Leader for Art History at Ashford School of Art and Design and teaches on the MA in Contemporary Arts programme at the University of Kent, lecturing primarily on the significance of philosophy and postmodern theory in relation to contemporary art.

Born in England in 1964, Simón Granell studied fine art at Falmouth School of Art and The Slade School of Art, London. He was nominated for the Picker Fellowship at Kingston University in 1991, and in 1992 was nominated for the Barclays Young Artist of the Year Award and shortlisted for the British School at Rome. He has exhibited widely in the UK and Spain, and has worked with artist Tania Kovats on the Drawing Quarters symposium at Bristol School of Art.

Josepha Sanna is the editor of Word Matters - a book of seminar transcripts about the interaction of language and art, which were hosted in Venice on the occasion of the 52nd Venice Biennale.

For three years, photographer Tim Edgar closely observed and documented the epic struggles of the insects that colonised his outside toilet. Insect Theatre reveals a world at once familiar and strange, a world of life-and-death drama laid bare. Stunningly detailed and atmospheric, Edgar’s images provide a meditation on conflict, survival, and transformation.
Anthropomologist Hugh Raffles contributes four short essays provoked by Edgar’s work. Pairing natural science with a philosophical fascination for animals lives, these reflections anchor Edgar’s uniquely personal and absorbing photographs and suggests ways of navigating their darkly beautiful vision.
A provocative and inspiring book for anyone interested in nature, science or photography, Insect Theatre offers a singular perspective on the natural world and the insects that surround us.

Into the Light

Julie Marsh is a video artist and film-maker, using video installation and sound to explore the phenomenon of sense perception as a language of the body. INTO THE LIGHT marks a subtle departure in Marsh’s work. Rather than her usual focus on human subjects, INTO THE LIGHT features moths flitting from one light source to another. As one light is switched off the moths are attracted to another and appear to pass through the camera lens and, by extension, virtually through the viewer.

This explorative approach leads to work that is highly engaging, taking into account the relationship between viewer and the specific place where the works are shown. Her installation work pushes the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional video by dragging her imagery into the three dimensional gallery space, involving the viewer within the environment depicted in her work.

This publication includes a text by Peter Bonnell whose insightful text sheds light on the artists innovative use of media.

Lache pas la pataté and Pulp

The exhibition featured two of three installation works from Tom Hackett’s highly successful textual triptych tour in 2003 which took place at PM Gallery, London, UH Galleries Hatfield and, Rugby Art Gallery in 2003.

With lache pas la pataté the viewer is presented with a sweeping configuration of approximately seventy cast concrete open books. Each book has a hollowed recess on its opposite pages to suggest the idea of a hidden compartment. In the left recess of each book lies a cast resin potato form. Embedded inside each cast potato form is a short phrase collected from a different person from the Rugby locale. This eclectic mix of maxims, aphorisms, and truisms become the central core of the resin potato forms and the project.

With Pulp 200, medical drip bags are patterned in a rhythmic configuration along the long gallery wall. Each drip bag contains a pulped text or a piece of theory nominated by an invited contributor. Faced with a field of shredded texts held in the bags, with a dangling mass of capillary tubing, the viewer is presented with the opportunity to be fed by the pulp, the theories, opinions, thoughts, and narrative of others. In actuality, the final experience offers only the objects themselves and the Gallery: a space for viewer contemplation; that of the discursive and negotiated field between artwork and audience, amongst the inescapable schism between the written interpretative and the actual.
An essay by Steven Adams, the co-ordinator of critical and cultural studies at the University of Hertfordshire gives an account of the work and looks and the implications that the work has as a comment on the relationship between art and knowledge.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2005

The exhibition, formerly The Cheltenham Open Drawing exhibition, has been an annual open show since 1996 and became The Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2001. The aim of the exhibition is to promote and reward talent and excellence in contemporary drawing. As the UK’s largest annual open drawing competition of its calibre, the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2005 has attracted 2600 entries from throughout the UK, from both professional, non-professional and student artists. The exhibition includes 78 drawings by 71 artists.

Every year, the changing panel of distinguished artists, writers, critics, collectors and curators select the show independently and without knowledge of the artists submitting; they define their own priorities for an exhibition of current drawing practice. This fashions a constantly shifting set of values and concerns, evidenced in the resulting touring exhibitions, in which fundamental questions are asked about what drawing is: its purpose, value, relevance and nature.

This publication records the winners of the 2005 prize and includes some information about the competition and its supporters.

He uses performance and Installation to discuss our relationship with the natural environment. The exhibition ran in conjunction with the Bournemouth Arts by the sea festival 2012.

Wheater works predominantly with that most fragile of material, glass. Wheater turns glass to his advantage, revels in its brittleness – ultimately producing work that is elegant, delicate and transitory; work that is informed and strengthened by a series of apparently futile acts.

The publication features an essay by Peter Bonnell, the curator, who thoughtfully describes Wheater’s work and process.

Unscripted

A rare collection of images of Usain Bolt 2004-2011 by photographer Karen Fuchs are brought together for the exhibition Unscripted. This exhibition was supported by Arts Futures and is introduced by Sports Journalist and Senior Writer at Runner’s World Magazine Kerry McCarthy.

Candid, colourful and charismatic, this photographic journey showcases Fuch’s portraiture skills at their best. We travel through an intense few years with the subject, Bolt, from gangly teenager to Olympic champion. The collection gives us a glimpse of his essence: “a young guy almost unaware of his prodigious talent but also with a healthy lust for life” as McCarthy puts it. This situates Fuchs work between documentary photography and mediated narrative, prompting us to stop and wonder what it means to achieve exceptional greatness today.

Values

“Jane Wilbraham is Value Obsessed”. Her works enquire into the nature of her own value systems and those constructed to keep the world turning. She is interested in how they came about and the possible consequences of living within or outside of their rules.
In Values the viewer can be forgiven for not initially seeing this in her carefully crafted objects, which are often wilfully enigmatic. However, over the last fifteen years, Wilbraham has used many material guises to achieve this end.
Her work has become particularly relevant in the light of the dire economic climate we have currently found ourselves in. What constitutes as an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work is certainly being re-examined by the general populous and whilst physical graft is not by any means all there is to be found in Wilbraham’s objects, it certainly has its part to play both in concept and aesthetic.
With text by Paul Hedge (Director), Hales Gallery, which explores the value of the materials that Wilbraham uses in relation to the ideals of democracy in the 20th Century.

Glimpses from Giles Duley

Published on the occasion of the One Second of Light exhibition by internationally renowed photographer Giles Duley, AUB Photography Alumnus.

A collection of photographs by Giles Duley created over the past decade. An anthology of stories and moments that let us take a glimpse into the lives of others.
