Jack Tan @ Arebyte, May 3 – Jun 26

2 May 2016

Jack Tan is doing an eight-week residency, Law’s Imagination, at London’s Arebyte gallery, opening May 3 and running to June 26.

The London-based artist’s curatorial research project will explore “collective understandings of the intersection between law and art” through a series of exhibitions of sculpture, video, text and performance, as well as discussions, talks and curated walks.

The “jurisgenerative aspects” of the two fields, particularly the role of creative processes in making legal or artistic judgments, will surface in a “performance and arbitrarian event”  called ‘Karaoke Court’,  ‘Packed Lunch’ weekly music and chat show, a mock training course to qualify as a ‘Certified Legal Aesthetician’, and an “exhibition-making as symposium” day called ‘Care Acts’, named after the 2014 law reform, throughout the two-month period.

Fellow artists Flora Parrott and Marco Godoy will also contribute their own ‘mini-residencies’ and open studio exhibitions as part of the Law’s Imagination programme.

See the Arebyte gallery website for details.**

Flora Parrott @ TINTYPE, Mar 11 – Apr 19

11 March 2014

Flora Parrott is presenting solo exhibition Fixed Position at London’s TINTYPE gallery, running March 11 to April 19.

As the UK iteration of a curatorial collaboration with by Maria Montero of Phosphorus Gallery in São Paulo, the show explores ideas of ‘merging’ and ‘nowhereness’ in the virtual space, in parallel with that of the pitch black darkness of the PETAR Caves in Brazil.

As one of the largest concentrations of limestone caves in the world, Parrott’s disorienting experience there inspired her investigations into “certainty of position, fixity and the way we are defined by our edges” using three-dimensional diagrams to pin down and articulate instinctive experience across media.

Some things words don’t do justice and Flora Parrott‘s artistic practice embodies those things. A deft of touch enables her to set about sourcing objects and making prints, which then come together like poetry in describing these elliptical occurrences.

An artist run space above a pub in Peckham, the appropriately named Public House Projects recently hosted Flora’s collaborative exhibition, along with sculptor and performance artist Alan McQuillan. A break from her commissioned work, this was an opportunity for Flora to loosen up and explore new ideas, through a shared interest with Alan in phenomenological experience.  The experiment fed a potent verbal and visual conversation between the two, whereby they drew inspiration from lunar cycles and British romanticist William Blake.
