Protocol Exhibition Invite - Cavendish Square - 2 pages.png

15 April – 26 August 2018   Kinokino, Sandnes, Norway

Sweep~Landskip, an exhibition of international artists whose works use landscape
as a concept. Within their ideas, we can find a sense of timelessness, abstraction,
figuration and a mapping of its physical origins, and a cultural overlay of human
presence. Traces of humanity appear where nature becomes landscape and
bodies perceive external stimuli.

Tallinn Art Week, Estonia



Residency Commission,  Milton Keynes Arts for Health

Tree Sense.  Inspired by trees and their relationship to society both past and present this residency encompasses tree learning activities and the design, planting and development of living sculptural tree art. Over many years cyclical pruning will establish a stunted, gnarled mini tree scape, promoting community legacy and stewardship. ‘Art and Culture’ will be embedded in the trees themselves.

The residenciy connects with themes relating to a newly commissioned artwork by Boyd and Evans at Milton Keynes University Hospital.


Nothing Endures but Change       

Ephemeral Sculpture.    The London Group & Friends June 7th – 24th 2018.  St John’s Churchyard, Waterloo, London.

Responding to the festival theme of ‘Transforming Minds’, the exhibition title, Nothing Endures but Change, comes from Heraclitus, better known for saying, ‘you cannot step into the same river twice’. Impermanence is a basic tenet of Buddhism. Buddhism and Hinduism share the doctrine that nothing lasts, everything is in a constant state of change.

The artists include:

Sophie Alston, Wendy Anderson, Peter Avery, Keith Ball, Vanya Balogh, Rosalind Barker, Alison Berry, Clive Burton, Sandie Camilleri, Andrea Cavallari, Rebecca Feiner, Cadi Froehlich, Ann Grim’, Susan Haire, Katie Hayward, Aude Hérail Jäger, Martin Heron, Alexander Hinks, Vera Jefferson, Marilyn Kyle, Chris Marshall, Venetia Nevill, Sarah Pager, Janet Patterson, Michael Phillipson, David Redfern,  Jim Roseveare, Tom Scase, Tommy Seaward, Chris Simpson, Angela Carol Stocker, Franny Swann, Almuth Tebbenhoff, Paul Tecklenberg, Graham Tunnadine, Bill Watson, Tisna Westerhof and Angela Wright.

The London Group, one of the longest-running and most prestigious artists’ collectives in the world, has around 90 members and champions diversity of work and independent thinking. Celebrating its centenary in 2013 its illustrious history mirrored that of British art for much of the 20th century and today the Group is as strong as ever, with nine shows this year alone.

EMBRACING THE UNDERDOG exhibition at Q-Park in Gerrard Street right at the very centre of the Chinese New Year celebrations for the Year of the Dog, Sun 18 Feb



http://www.transitiongallery.co.uk/…/Spe…/Speedway_home.html Inspired by the psychogeographic poetry of place, Speedway features contemporary responses to long forgotten histories in a circulatory meshing of a sense of community, historical layering, philosophical ruminations on time, archaeology, leisure and present day artistic ingenuity.
