Joey Holder + Steven Ounanian @ Peer Sessions, Feb 25

24 February 2015

London-based crit group Peer Sessions is back with its 52nd round with artists Joey Holder and Steven Levon Ounanian on February 25.

Founded in 2009 by artists Kate Pickering and Charlotte Warne Thomas, Peer Sessions  is intended as a sort of educational support network for artists, curators and academics. The sessions themselves consist of presentations of new work, followed by discussions and feedback to help move the work forward.

Edition 52 with Holder and Ounanian will be taking place at the experimental artist-run space Enclave, discussing, perhaps Holder’s recent series ‘BioSTAT’ and ‘o18O – 013C’. The next round, Peer Sessions 53 with artists Rowena Harris and Ben Cove, will take place on March 26 at SPACE Triangle.

See the FB event page for details. **

TRIALOGUES @ ASC Gallery, Apr 4

1 April 2014

April 4th brings the opening of Residency 01, one of three short residencies part of the Peer Sessions: TRIALOGUES residency project at the ASC Gallery in Southwark.

Inspired by laws of general relativity and the event horizon that exists in spacetime as “the point of no return”, True Stories from the Event Horizon is a collaboration between artists Kate Pickering, Emily Rosamond, and Steven Levon Ounanian. Exploring the common case of an event horizon surrounding a black hole, where place and time become unstable, the three artists attempt “to harness the black hole’s propensity to warp and mutate space-time”.

By reassembling impaired facts and recovering lost ones, Pickering, Rosamond and Ounanian play with notion of truth and memory, as well as space and time, and their inherent ambiguities.

To learn more about the Peer Sessions, visit their official website, and to find out about the TRIALOGUES residency trifecta, visit their project page. And for specific Residency 01 opening event details, please visit aqnb‘s event listing for TRIALOGUES.
