FERMENT 3 is the third of FERMENT's five exhibitions that together show the work of 50 artists over 5 weeks. FERMENT is a project designed to present the exhibition as a changing site by re-contextualising each artwork with new works installed in the gaps left by the departure of works that were installed earlier.  This weekly going and coming of artworks is like a slow and progressive dance, each step of which is seen by coming to its 5 openings—on Fridays 6-8pm on 4, 11, 18 and 15 January & 1 February.

By the time it finishes at 5pm on Sunday 3 February, it will have shown the work of 
Lisa Andrew & Rachel Buckeridge, Susan Andrews, Karen Banks, Liz Bradshaw, Mandy Burgess, Sue Callanan, Angus Callander, Curtis Ceapa , Stella Chen, Lucinda Clutterbuck and Lewis, Paul Cooper,  der_melicious, Dominique Madeleine Devadason,  Jacquelene Drinkall, Michele Elliot, Merilyn Fairskye, Nola Farman, Beata Geyer, Claire Gibbon, Allan Giddy,  Adrian Hall, Barbara Halnan, Annelies Jahn, Fiona Kemp, Harry Klein, Michelle Le Dain, Joyce Lubotzky, Wendy Miller, Louise Morgan, Nadia Odlum, Renay Pepita, Anya Pesce, Nina Raven, Margaret Roberts, Tamsin Salehian, Andrew Simms, Eva Simmons, Anke Stäcker, Helen M Sturgess, Jessica Thallmaier, Rosie Thomas, Mark Titmarsh, Nina Walton, Elke Wohlfahrt and Sarah Woodward.

FERMENT is Articulate's fourth project that presents the exhibition as a site determined as much by changing artwork as by architecture and location. It does this by intermingling works by two different groups of each week—incoming artists install in a site shaped partly by works continuing from the previous week and the gaps left by outgoing works. It is planned as a slow progressive artists' dance in which each show is one step, and in which the whole is understood through a mixture of observing and remembering.

FERMENT is called FERMENT because it sounds slightly like the FERRET of 2018 and FERAL of 2015, which was named FERAL because it sounded slightly like FAIRISLE of 2013 (titled because of the progressive nature of the Fairisle knitting pattern) and because, like FAIRISLE, its overlapping structure is a slightly feral form of exhibition practice. Follow the links to documentation of the earlier FERRETFERAL 1234 and 5  and FAIRISLE projects.
