FERRET 1 opening event Friday 26 January 6-8pm


The FERRET project runs from 26 January to 25 February 2018, Friday - Sunday 11am-5pm

Its five openings are on Fridays 6-8pm, 26 January and 2, 9, 16 and 23 February


FERRET is the third of Articulate's projects that present the exhibition as a changing site. Over 5 weeks, it shows the work of 60 artists and is designed so that the work of two different groups of artists intermingle each week like a slow and progressive artists' dance. Each step in the dance can be seen by coming to the five openings or weekends.

FERRET 1 will open Friday 26 January showing the work of artists black3y3dpeac3, Linden Braye, Angus Callander, Timothy Corne, Lily Cummins, Rox De Luca, Jacquelene Drinkall Michele Elliot, Martin Langthorne, Diane McCarthy, Anya Pesce, Deborah Prior, Olivia Samman, Kat Sawyer, Kate Scott, William Seeto, Lisa Sharp, Anke Stäcker, Catriona Stanton and Emma Wise. 

FERRET 1 is the first of FERRET's 5 shows. After FERRET 1 ends on Sunday 28 February, half the artists de-install their work, and another 10 artists install to produce FERRET 2 (opening Friday 2 February). These overlapping changeovers continue until FERRET 5 concludes on Sunday 25 February.

What does it mean to occupy and produce space within a gallery setting? Olivia Samman’s installation practice focuses on linear form in the third dimension and minimal artistic intervention to draw attention to the architectural surroundings. She creates installation pieces that physically have minimal mass and occupy little space, however her practice creates large structure within an already structured space. Often within gallery settings we fall victim to an unaware navigation with focus solely on the displayed objects. Through spatial design and an anticipation of the audience’s gaze and perception, Samman’s installation art draws attention to the space as a whole and guides the audience to view elements in the surrounding space and view them as art. 
































FERRET 3 will open Friday 9 February showing the work of  Sue Callanan, Bianca Burns, Damian Dillon, Nicole Ellis, Simone Griffin, Adrian Hall , Barbara Halnan, Laine Hogarty, Fiona Kemp, Raymond Matthews, Alycia Moffat, Louise Morgan, Sarah Newall , Isaac Nixon, Renay Pepita, Elizabeth Rankin, Ambrose Reisch, Margaret Roberts, Tamsin Salehian, Sandra Smith, Sarah Woodward and Jeff Wood. 

FERRET 4 will open Friday 16 February showing the work of Susan Andrews, Julia Davis, Damian Dillon, Nicole Ellis, Michelle Grasso, Simone Griffin, Adrian Hall, Barbara Halnan, Lyn Heazlewood, Kendal Heyes, Lisa Jones, Michelle Ledain, Tom Loveday, Joanne Makas, Louise Morgan, Isaac Nixon, Renay Pepita, Nuha SaadSandra Smith, Helen M Sturgess, Elke Wohlfahrt, Jeff Wood and Sarah Woodward.

FERRET 5 will open Friday 23 February showing the work of  Susan Andrews, Michele Beevors, Sophie Coombs, Carolyn Craig, Julia Davis, Marta Ferracin, Sarah Fitzgerald, Jane Gavan, Michelle Grasso, Lyn Heazlewood, Caitlan Hespe, Kendal Heyes, Elizabeth Hogan, Lisa Jones, Michelle Ledain, Tom Loveday, Joanne Makas, Alex Moulis, Nuha SaadEva Simmons, Helen M Sturgess, Yoshi Takahashi, Sienna White and Elke Wohlfahrt.

FERRET is Articulate's third 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.

FERRET is called FERRET because it sounds slightly like 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 FAIRISLE  and FERAL 1234 and 5 projects.

Tolmie MacRae's Transimmanence opens Friday 5 January 2018


Transimmanence
opening event Friday 5 January 6-8pm 
open 6-21 January 2018
Artist's talk  Sunday 21 Jan, 2pm

Tolmie MacRae’s first solo show is the exploration of what Jean-Luc Nancy called transimmanence. The viewer will be transmuted into a flânerie - idle, aimless observer - of the Articulate space. 




Over the past five years the body of work I’ve developed has recurring themes of meditation and transcendence; immanence at the same time, but not in contradiction. My digital works - which are presented as prints, video, projection and sculpture - are all manifestations of my inquiry into the flows of time on a subject or object. Through the medium of video I could look for complimentary and juxtaposing lines of  movement between frames; then pull those lines through each other. Like the cubists striving to represent every perspective of a  subject/object simultaneously, I try to pull each frame of video through itself to see each frame at once, yet evolve and flow over time generating a visual and temporal abstraction of the moment and the body.
