Inside out

This is the first of a series of articles that focus on artists living and working in different cities across the world. Each gives insight into the artist’s practice, the influence of the city and their thoughts on the relationships between the two. The artist’s have also been asked to identify places they recommend for visitors, as well as key arts organisations to contact for further information.

Domestic setting

‘Home (Between 8 and 10pm)’ was an exhibition curated by MASS, that began by looking at aspects of taste and home-ownership. However, this was not about unfathomable DIY assembly packs from Sweden, nor Sir Terrance Conran’s call for cool austerity […]

Art of locality

Window Sills is neither public art nor community art. It uses collaborative strategies that draw on and sit between a number of artistic practices taking its lead from ‘New Genre Public Art’ – a term used by American artist Suzanne Lacy – which incorporates activist arts, site-specific art, performance art and happenings. The project is also aligned to ideas about art and context developed in universities in the UK.

Thinking (about) video …

Whenever artists discuss London they tend to regurgitate the usual polemic of the ‘centre’ versus the ‘margins’. Former regionalist Nick Stewart has recanted his old ways and become seduced by the capital’s financial hub, producing a series of video observations that track a complex series of patterns within this urban environment. Careful editing of the recorded image can reveal the liminal, the unconscious, or indeed, the political, within the world of appearances. Time can be condensed or stretched as appropriate.
