Exhibition: The Stall of Gathered Economies (Part 1)
Artists involved: John Newling Date: May 2013 Summary: The ‘Stall of Gathered Economies’ brings into differing relations many objects that Newling has deployed over 20 years of installations that review ‘social capital’ and ideas of an ‘ecology of place’ through transactions with and through people as participants in the work. From gilded calves to a lottery machine each object sits in relation to the other within the frame of a market stall; all gathered together in a complex set of conversations both material and metaphoric.
Date: 15 November – 21 December 2012 Artists involved: Helen Chadwick, Jo Shapcott, Joseph Hartley, Laura McGrath, Jackson and Teed. Summary: An exhibition combining sculpture, poetry and interdisciplinary arts that centres on Helen Chadwick’s Piss Flowers and new poetry commissioned from Jo Shapcott in response. At the heart of Transformation is the exploration of a very specific artistic idea: how does art – be that sculpture, poetry, or the blurred boundaries in between – transform experience and convey the joy of a single moment?
