UPCOMING:

Catherine Ferguson - 'Machines and Diagrams'  June / July

 

DISPUTATIO May 6th - 29th 2011

Richard Clegg, Dan Coombs, Chantal Joffe, Peter Ashton Jones, Darren Murray, Neal Tait and Covadonga Valdes

 

Disputatio  presents seven contemporary painters working with particular modes. The essential aim is to allow the diversity of each mode to flourish, but also facilitate dialogue ‘between’ the works, providing additional sources of influence and cross reference; an interplay that refracts and rebounds meaning around the room.


24 SEVEN - CURATED BY CHRIS MEIGH-ANDREWS

PARTICIPANTING ARTISTS: David Henckel, Richard Layzell, Pam Skelton, David Mackintosh, Chris Meigh-Andrews, Cinzia Cremona, Charles Quick, Louise K Wilson & Spencer Roberts

APRIL 22nd - JUNE 17th 2011

GOODEN GALLERY 25A Vyner St London E2 9DG

 

 

ON THE FLOOR

JOHN GIBBONS AND NATHANIEL RACKOWE

MARCH 3rd - APRIL 23rd 2011

John Gibbons’ sculptures in this exhibition, have an interesting relationship with the floor. Despite their obvious stillness, they are not rooted as permanent stationary objects. For example, ‘Transition (Monks Song) 2002’ meets the floor with sled-like runners. ‘Breath, 2001’ sits on a trolley with castors, and both pieces imply movement in the same way that a car standing still, tells us everything about its potential for motion. This ‘potential’ is also seen in Nathaniel Rackowe’s low lying piece ‘LP27, 2010’, which hugs the floor, concertina-like; hinting at its capability for lateral expansion and contraction.

The supposed intangibility of space and light and the consequential description of volume rather than mass, is a connecting concern for both artists. Nathaniel Rackowe encloses light, or allows it to emit in organised, particular ways, inside and outside of the work. For example, as it spreads across the floor ‘LP27’ squeezes out bright slithers of light from between its black, corrugated layers. ‘LP22, 2009’, is upright, has slatted wooden sides and a lattice of orange netting. It is the container for a fluorescent bulb, which as an object itself, is presentationally offered diagonally inside the work. Light from the bulb, leaks out from its insufficient container, into the space around it, onto the walls and floor, taking away with it, some of the colour belonging to the container. John Gibbons’ pieces both enclose space and set it free; there is a duality of space that presents us with the dilemma of deciding what is contained, and what is container; what is inside and what is outside.

 

The Great Masturbator on Holiday

NEIL DRABBLE

NOV 20th – JAN 23rd 2011

 

Neil Drabble’s work is sharply conceived; developing ideas through installation, sculpture, text, photography and performance. It is tempting to compare some of his methods and results to those of contemporary satirists and comedians - take Russell Brand’s oblique comments to the U.S. electorate at the MTV awards when urging them to vote for Barack Obama. He said, ‘some people say that you’re not ready for a black president, but I know America to be a free thinking, forward-thinking, liberal country, afterall you’ve had that retarded cowboy fella in the Whitehouse for 8 years.’

 

Whilst on holiday in Spain this summer, Drabble made a series of temporary sculptures, some were then photographed, to become pieces themselves, and some remained sculptures and were brought home. ‘The Great Masturbator on Holiday’ is a selection of those pieces, which all share three clear assumptions at inception:

  • that the title would be appropriated from a list of works made by Salvador  Dali.
  • that only the immediate locale of the Drabble holiday home would be used to photograph each sculpture (specifically, environments provided by backdrops in the garage, near the garden wall and on a desk in the house)
  • that only items (or people) ‘found on-site’, would be used to make the work.

Take me anywhere I don't care. I don't care / Sean Branagan

Sep 3rd - Oct 17th 2010

GOODEN GALLERY 25A Vyner St London E2 9DG

Sean Branagan’s work has a hint of the impossible, but nearly graspable about it. He doesn’t describe the world we know - i.e. he doesn’t focus on the scaffolding, in which we communally invest, through language and social order to run our lives - an approach that delivers the comforting satisfaction of affirmation and recognition. Instead he attempts to breach ‘The Real’ [1] – something that differentiates itself from what could be called ‘artificial’ to be more total, but which is certainly discernible from the imaginary and fanciful.

Branagan describes the urge in his studio to hold one end of a ribbon and throw the other end outwards, through and into the work. This is less about creating a navigable bridge between the tangible and intangible (because this assumes a difference, or a journey, that takes you from one thing to another, different thing - the conceptual world of the painting and his own reality) it is more about an orchestration of seeing and feeling the work homogenously, about embracing the idea that perhaps there is no difference, perhaps there is only one thing – ‘The Real’.

[1] According to Jacques Lacan, one must always distinguish between reality (the fantasy world we convince ourselves is the world around us) and the real (a materiality of existence beyond language and thus beyond expressibility). So much are we reliant on our linguistic and social version of "reality" that the eruption of pure materiality (of the real) into our lives is radically disruptive. And yet, the real is the rock against which all of our artificial linguistic and social structures necessarily fail.” See Jacques Lacan: The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psycho-Analysis. Trans. Alan Sheridan. Ed. Jacques-Alain Miller. New York: Norton, 1977
