Heavy Sentience – Friday 11th July, 7 – 9pm

Murray Anderson / Rosanna Greaves / CJ Mahony / Frances Scott / Lisa Wilkens

Please join us for a launch of a publication by artists Murray Anderson, Rosanna Greaves, CJ Mahony, Frances Scott and Lisa Wilkens, produced on the occasion of Heavy Sentience, the current exhibition at Block 336. The book is part document of the project processes, part ongoing collective work, with a commissioned text in two instalments by Kathy Noble. The evening will include an ‘in conversation’ in the gallery with the artists, chaired by Kathy. This will be followed by a screening of the first of eight episodes from Lars Von Trier’s Riget (The Kingdom), a series originally shown on Danish television in 1994. Based in Copenhagen’s ‘Kingdom’ hospital, built on ancient marshland “where the bleaching ponds once lay”, the television show presents a series of events, human and supernatural, that besiege the hospital.

Robert Bell 4.10.14 – 1.11.14

The up-coming exhibition will transform the main gallery space into an immersive environment of projections and constructed installation. The emphasis will be on encouraging visitor interaction and engagement with the work by including them as a surface in the possible modulation of the medium and as a subject in the unfolding event.

Robert Bell’s new works derive from the digital translations of his paintings.

These animated, revolving forms, pulsating fields and mutating membranes extend the abstract mark, worked surface and trace of duration evident in his wall-based paintings. The virtual creations are reminiscent of the micro or macro realm but defy accurate categorization, instead for the viewer they ambiguously posit answers to questions of state, site and scale. Here, painting is experienced as a 360-degree phenomenon, a spinning contraction of time, memory, process and event.
