CURRENT

ALEXANDRA HUGHES

28 July 2016 - 30 July 2016

Alexandra Hughes is based in Newcastle and we have established a relationship over time in group shows with her and are keen to showcase her work as a solo artist. She will use this opportunity to spend some time in Roaming Room space to develop a work. This will culminate in an exhibition for three days.

Hughes is a visual artist with a practice in the field of expanded photography, undertaking physical explorations of the photographic medium, moving from the 2D to 3D, bringing image and material together to redefine the photographic object. Alexandra Hughes blurs the boundaries between landscape and technology, psychological and architectural spaces, seeking to locate where the contemporary sublime can exist.

She explores our mediated relationship with landscape and wilderness through technology and immaterial, ubiquitous photographic images in the current digital age.



Opening Thursday - Saturday 12:00 - 18:00


EILIS KIRBY

25 August 2016 - 27 August 2016

Eak Enterprises, the solo practice of director Eilis Kirby, is based in Bristol. Her intelligently playful approach belies a profound underpinning of ideas drawing together the visual, literature and the spoken word. Her research has involved working with mathematicians, social scientists, theoreticians and playwrights.
Eilis will work in the Roaming Room space to develop a new work culminating in an exhibition for three days.

EAK Enterprises is a cluster of independent, diverse, yet fundamentally linked, projects and concerns. Its activities range from publishing and public engagement events to postcard production and archiving; from the poetic to the pragmatic; from the imaginative to the instructive; and from the intangible to the informational.
Its main aim is the promotion of a more questioning and thoughtful approach to living through stimulation of the brain and disruption of fixed lines of thought. Our hope is that this will lead to greater personal fulfillment and, perhaps, eventually, world peace.

Opening Thursday - Saturday 12:00 - 18:00
