I started this my portion of this project with help from a few people
off this list so thought it would be ok to promote it here.
The Heuristics Laboratory Poster
The Heuristics Laboratory 9th November - 2nd December
The Heuristics Laboratory would like to invite you to our inaugural
exhibition, a series of experiments, exhibitions and events commissioned
by Sideshow in the Malt Cross gallery, Nottingham.
Three experiments by three Nottingham based artists Georgie Park, Ruth
Scott and Pete McPartlan will take place throughout November that use
the Malt Cross gallery as a laboratory. We are presenting exhibitions
and events that explore different modes of problem solving -
persistence, intuition and trial and error. The exhibits will show
intuitive interactions, work in progress and document genuine
experiments as the artists play with an unfamiliar skill or process.
Tuesday 9- Saturday 13th Nov : In Telecine Pete McPartlan is using the
gallery as an ad hoc laboratory to convert celluloid into pixels. Using
home video equipment to seize control of the means of post production.
Tuesday 16- Saturday 20th Nov : Ruth Scott's Line Walk is an
exploration of balance and imbalance through learning to walk on a tight
wire. A free standing tight wire structure shall be installed in the
gallery space, where she shall engage in this practice. The struggle and
tension of this process is presented through live performance and
Tuesday 23 - Saturday 27th Nov : In orchestrated rumination on her
connection to the home, Georgie Park is incessently wood-turning until
the last day of her exhibition, producing as many chair legs and
banister poles at an electric lathe as she can. Her exhibition will show
the results of her persistence.
Thursday 25th Nov from 8pm: Join us on the for a night of film and
performance. With films by Phil Niblock, Melati Suryodarmo and more.
Thursday 2nd Dec from 8pm: The exhibition concludes with an evening
showing the outcome of the three exhibitions with films, performances
and the launch of our publication Lab Notes.
All events are free.
