'Point and Shoot' Workshop
Led by Sharon Haward and Rachel Wilberforce
24 January, 12 & 3pm
In conversation, with Mark Waugh
8 March, 2pm
In Space Interrupted, three artists present projected video and installations that span LIMBO’s project space - a former electricity substation - interrupting and overlapping its utilitarian qualities to create an assemblage of real and imagined functions and meanings.
In the ‘interrupted’ space, a sense of cohesion and literal meaning is disrupted in favour of an unsteady mix of form and function, fixed and shadowy fragments.
Space Interrupted is part of an ongoing collaboration between artist Sharon Haward and curator Clare Sheppeard.
Led by artists and photographers Sharon Haward & Rachel Wilberforce with information and local history supplied by Margate Museum.
Bring your camera phone, analogue or digital camera and join us for a 'point & shoot' exploration of Margate. No previous experience necessary!
Selected photos will be printed and displayed around town Feb & Mar 2015
Join the artists and Clare Sheppeard in conversation with writer and curator Mark Waugh. Tickets are free, but limited. Book here
Zoe Fudge, an artist based in London, is a sculptor whose work explores scaled environments through the appropriation of architectural techniques for making and drawing. Her background and training in architecture informs her work through the production of accumulative series of constructions which test and explore themes around structure, connections and material qualities. Through development studies exploring scale, repetition and materiality, her work explores a tension that arises from the delicacy of construction and the inherent qualities of particular materials.
Sharon Haward, an artist based in Hastings, works in response to site using a range of media to upset the sensory and narrative sense of place. Using architectural structures, projections and sound recordings Haward re-frames imagery and sound to make ambiguous and fractured installations. Each installation provokes an embodied experience of space creating an invisible thread linking viewer and place.
Rachel Wilberforce, an artist based in Ramsgate, uses photography, collage, video and installation. She is drawn to places with uncertain borders, sites on the edge, cut off and precarious, hovering between different histories, uses and meanings. Her work aims to prompt questions about our relationship with everyday space and the potential for our mind to dissociate space, or reveal the transcendental.
Clare Sheppeard – curator, has worked with local, national and international artists in a variety of sites, including David Batchelor, Mariele Neudecker, Karin Van Pinxterern and Lyndall Phelps. Projects include Coastal Currents Festival (Hastings, 2012 - Present). Jerwood Gallery Hastings, 2013, Venice Biennale, 2009, Van Abbemuseum, 2009, Independents Liverpool Biennial, 2008. Recent projects include new site specific commissions with Alice Anderson and Kate MccGwire.
