Part 2: 8 February–28 February
Closing event with discussion and performance: Sunday 28 February, 2pm
This collaborative exhibition takes as its starting point ‘Dazzle Camouflage’, with the three artists each employing pattern as a form of pictorial disruption, interruption and spatial collapse. Initially each artist will work site-specifically by making work directly on the gallery walls. Over the duration of the exhibition they will develop work by responding to the space and each other; artworks will butt up against each other, they may be shown on top of each other making individual practices both indistinguishable and jarring. Works within the exhibition will be concealed within the overall dazzle effect of the installation producing interesting juxtapositions and correlations.
Continuing a playful dialogue with video, photography and installation, the artists will explore sites in the landscape between their studios in Newcastle, Nottingham and the Harley Gallery. The exhibition will reflect the processes of being somewhere, having an encounter and working at a distance. Different media are used to bring elements of the remote sites into a triangular relationship within the gallery, and out of this triangulation they will conjure up a ‘third party’; a chance encounter with someone who becomes an artist in their own right for the duration of the exhibition.
