Feb: Welcome to the Jungle - Chris Clarke & Graeme Stonehouse
An exhibition bringing together new video and sculptural works from two Sheffield-based artists whose practice is linked by a sense of anxiety, abandonment, humour and an interest in the banality of everyday urban experiences.
Mar: Nonisotropic Drawings - Giles Eldridge
An installation of artworks that challenges the empirical nature of the Image. Contrasting styles, references and materials are used to underline discrepancies, presenting a display that differs in density, quality and meaning. The title and intentions behind the show refer to the writings and theories of critic Roland Barthes.
Apr: The Quatermass Code - a.a.s
An installation in the form of a space station control room, with accompanying performances and projections. Taking the character of Quatermass from four British Dramas that started in the 50’s, the artists have immersed him in a contemporary fiction, where a mysterious event is influencing people and fragmenting sound and images.
May: Might and Mane - Heidi Schaefer
A number of new works including drawing, sculpture and installation. Using carnivalesque humour and playfulness amidst suggestions of violence and disruption, the artist explores the theme of displacement and dislocation, contemplating how war shapes this experience.
June: After the house is burnt, pick up the nails - Katie Davies
Work created during the artist’s recent residency in Seoul, which observes the rapid modernisation of an Asian city in a modern Confucian culture from the perspective of a ‘Waygookin’ (foreigner). Video projections of a pulsing sunset form a relationship with Korean advertising and illuminated sculptures of highrise buildings.
July: Recent Paintings and Drawings - Patrick Bridge
Drawings, portrait and still life paintings depicting minor melancholic dramas. Here the artist explores the use of paint and the possibilities it allows for exploring human emotion, as well as the lengths people go to in pursuit of immortality.
Aug: Tutti Frutti - Lesley Halliwell
Recent large-scale colourful biro drawings made using a Spirograph kit. The artist’s work introduces the effects of chance and accident within a system of repeated motifs and geometrical order, resulting in elegant works of art that serve as a record of endurance and intense, aggressive mark-making.
Sept: Wager Slaves - Black Dogs
Leeds collective Black Dogs present a painfully convoluted process of financial transactions and wagers, inviting the audience to take part in the initiation of chance events, the consequences of which determine the content of the show.
Oct: Wunderburg 15 - Mark Le Ruez
Nov: The Stuff of Things - Kate Whately
A series of works that attempt to capture the essence of the artist’s chosen subject - the processes of painting and drawing. The outcome of these investigations results in an assemblage of essentially spare and poetic images.
Dec: Bad Books, Mad Gods and Dirty Crowns - P P Priestly
A solo show that features large-scale structures of anthropomorphised churches, exhibited within the gallery and courtyard, whilst tableaux of small figurative sculptures juxtapose sado-masochistic, religious and bestial imagery.
