Pop along and let us know what you think.
with: presents the outcomes of three collaborations between artists that arose from discussions during a series of crit sessions, held at Rogue Project Space, in 2011-2012. During the sessions one or more of the artists presented an aspect of their practice to the group and conversation developed. The name of the crit sessions ‘Community of Practice’, referred to the book by Jean Lave and Etienne Wenger (1991) that describes how a group of individuals with common interests can develop professionally by sharing experiences through storytelling and regular interaction.
From these discussions, common interests and relationships developed organically, and these led to collaborations. Annie Harrison and Jenny Steele discovered similar concerns in mapping of place and history in relation to architecture. Julie Del Hopital and Nicola Dale exchanged ideas about the idiosyncrasies of knowledge and language. Jacqueline Wylie and Sarah Sanders considered a dialogue built through drawing, and enforced physical distance.
with: will show the results from the three collaborations-
Sanders and Wylie’s Skype based conversations on art and learning inspired a series of exercises performed by the artists on and off-line, exploring how communication is mediated by technology.
Annie Harrison and Jenny Steele’s film investigates the canal basin which their studio spaces overlook, using methods which sometimes clash awkwardly and sometimes merge.
Del Hopital and Dale’s collaboration “Stalker” simultaneously presents analogue and digital footage of the day the artists let objects with very personal meanings sink or sail away on the River Mersey.
The artists have invited writer and curator Lauren Velvick to reflect on the collaborations within a text available to the public at the event.
