Fastnet and Dogger at Contemporary Art Space Chester

Just in case you didn’t make it down there, here are some installation shots of Fastnet and Dogger at Contemporary Art Space Chester. It featured work by Laurie Lax, Eliot Sargeantson, Robert Prideaux and Me.

Fastnet and Dogger on the road

Fastnet and Dogger is touring to Contemporary Art Space Chester. It is a group show of work by artists whose practice responds to the landscape. It features new work by Laurie Lax, Robert Prideaux, Eliot Sargeantson and me. I’m showing a sound piece called I Downt Understand and a video piece called Dowsing for water in Stanley Green industrial estate. It opens on the 12th of January and runs from the 13th of January until the 24th of February.

Here are some photos of the Fastnet and Dogger show that I had some work in a few weeks ago. Credits for the photos go to Laurie Lax.

Fastnet and Dogger

I’m in a group show this week with my friend Laurie Lax. It is called Fastnet and Dogger and features work by Eliot Sargeantson, Robert Prideaux, Laurie and Me. It is part of a series of four shows called Madescapes, which explore the idea of landscape in contemporary art. I’m showing a sound piece that recalls stories of my experiences in different landscapes (the city, a quarry and suburbia) told using electronic voices which gradually deteriorate and talk over one another.

The shows take place in an empty shop in Bristol that is owned by the council in Bristol. I really like the idea of art and artists occupying disused or empty spaces, I think it is where art works best. Artists can fit into the nooks and crannies that otherwise would be dismissed or forgotten. Artists can bring these places to life, as they have to make them workable and they have to be secure enough to turn into a gallery or a studio. The best thing about these spaces are that they are free or cheap, good for artists such as myself on a shoestring budget at the best of times.

The show is at 9 Waring House, Redcliff Hill, Bristol, United Kingdom.
