’Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together’ – Marilyn Monroe
This summer aspex will undertake a rag and bone-style collection of unwanted domestic and small-scale industrial items within Portsmouth and Southsea. Selected artists will take these objects, which are no longer fit or have served their purpose and will turn them into something that is potentially beautiful and definitely different.
aspex‘s main gallery space will function as both workshop and exhibition space with artists working for fixed periods throughout the project. Visitors will be able to access the gallery, observe & talk to the artists while they transform cast-offs into new creations or incorporate them into performances.
An exhibition of selected pieces will go on show following the making period, with the preview happening on the 30th September from 6-8 pm, and the exhibition then running from the 1st-9th October.
Working Title is part-financed by the European Union, and is part of Landscapes, Cities, People, a project which aims to build and broaden audiences for contemporary visual art in the UK, France and Belgium.
If you miss the rag & bone collection drop your unwanted items into the gallery at our Bring & Bye weekend.
Artists taking part in this summer’s Working Title exhibition include:
Will Cruikshank, Amy Twigger Holroyd, Nicola Dale, Lode Geens, Beata Kozlowska, Charlie Hurcombe, Andy Parker, Jason Taylor, Paul Matosic, Thomas Davis, Tamara Van San.
