Upcoming projects or exhibitions taking place in Studio 12:
The Future Is Not Necessarily Set In Stone | Peter Nash. Opening reception and artist talk. 22nd October 2019, 6pm. Exhibition also open 23–25 Oct, 10am – 5pm. Film screening of stop motion animation (10 min) and exhibition of puppets complete with their props and sets. This work is a continuation of artist Peter Nash’s ongoing research into pre-internet sources of knowledge and methods of communication. By embracing a deliberately hand-made aesthetic and drawing on influences including 1970s & 80s children’s television programmes, fairy tales, half-remembered stories and museum visits he seeks to provide a visual counterpoint to the computer generated imagery and plastic sheen that dominate the current era.
Arctica: The Last Fragments | Angela Gilmour. 08.11.19 – 29.11-19. Opens 07 Nov 6pm. Artist and former physicist Angela Gilmour presents a response to her experience on The Arctic Circle residency program, having spent three weeks on expedition during the Summer Solstice (midnight sun) in 2019.
