Alison Ballard - Eyecatcher III

Alison Ballard - Eyecatcher III

Alison Ballard (Fine Art) is showing new work on the Big Screen Southend.

'The Inner Voice', 2017
Alison Ballard
05:08 minutes

80% of people hear an inner voice when they read. It helps us to understand and digest what we are reading but it also slows us down. Speed-reading technologies can help us to remove the inner voice but this voice may be a profound part of what it means to be human. What impact could removing it have on our cognitive abilities and our sense of self? In this short text-based video, Ballard invites us to do battle with our own inner voice, to experience life without it, while musing upon its significance within our own lives.

She is exhibiting with: Hazel Brill, Nikhil Vettukattil and Sam Williams.

Exhibition dates: 20 January to 22 April 2018

BLOC ASSEMBLY

Ben Judd (Fine Art) is participating in Bloc Assembly with Compass Live Art at Bloc Projects Sheffield. He will be working with with Faye Green, a 2013 graduate from Fine Art at Newcastle University. Bloc Assembly creates a short-term, experimental platform to support the work of two artists at different points in their careers, whose practices incorporate performance and live elements in different ways. Judd and Green will be using the space to test or develop work in progress with an audience, and a dinner and round-table discussion will draw their work in relation to wider questions surrounding process in live art and performance and their distinction/intersection with other fields.

THE ITALIC I

THE ITALIC I

Emma Cocker (Fine Art) & her collaborator Clare Thornton (a participant in the NTU Fine Art Summer Lodge) have a new exhibition at project space plus in Lincoln from 3rd November.
The Italic I is a collaborative interdisciplinary project by Emma Cocker and Clare Thornton, comprising new sculptural, time-based and textual works for exhibition, animated by a series of live events. Within The Italic I, Cocker and Thornton approach the gallery as gymnasium, a training space for exploring the different states of potential made possible through voluntarily surrendering to the event of a repeated fall. The Italic I involves an attempt to slow and extend the duration of falling in order to suspend and elaborate upon its discrete phases or scenes, which in turn sheds light on the process of artistic collaboration itself and the making of meaning within creative labour.
