Akhal-Teke + Josephine Callaghan @ Res., Mar 27 – Apr 11

27 March 2015

Mutable project Res. is bringing artist Josephine Callaghan to its Deptford gallery and studio space for an exhibition titled Akhal-Teke, running from March 27 to April 11.

The new series of medium format, analogue photo-collages by Callaghan will be the first of three solo shows at Res. produced by research and development project #temporarycustodians, initiated by Helen Kaplinsky and artist Maurice Carlin. Kaplinsky, along with Sarah Jury and Lucy A. Sames, is also the founder of gallery.

The opening night will be accompanied by a DJ set from BAD SECTOR, and alongside the exhibitions programme #temporarycustodians will be “enacting the distribution” of an artwork by Carlin, inviting the audience to develop a legal and company structure for it to be co-owned by temporary custodian shareholders.

Apophenia launch @ Regent Trading Estate, Dec 6

5 December 2014

Helen Kaplinsky and Maurice Carlin‘s #temporarycustodians project launches a new ‘co-working archipelago’, Apophenia, with an evening of performances taking place at Salford’s Regent Trading Estate on December 6.

The evening will feature performances by three artists-in-residence, as well as a handful or artists and musicians invited to perform. The ‘co-working archipelago’ to which the artists belong has become like “an ecological growth of creative and industrial islands” housed within a 8,000 square foot warehouse in North-West England.

The participating artists are invited to reflect upon “independence and nomadism resulting from a crisis in resource management” in this vast country estate, and Saturday’s show brings performances by the three artists-in-residence – Josephine Callaghan, Susanna Davies-Crook and Gery Georgieva – as well a live set by Vera Modena and Patchfinder, a performance by New Noveta, a VJ/DJ set by The Mycological Twist, and a dormant storage island by Joey Holder.

See the FB event page for details. **
