New Studio - Work in Progress

I have recently moved into a new studio space in Durham's EmptyShop and have started working on new work.

I am developing the work I started during my residency at 25 Stratford Grove by back projecting onto tracing paper and drawing around the footage in real time.

Redroom Dance 1

Redroom Dance 2

April 8, 1994 - Where Were You?

Although these are the first attempts, I am quite pleased with the results. They do remind me of Idris Khan's work a little too much though. More about him later.

Paint by Number / Versions of the Fifth

This is a still from a new video piece that I will be showing at Star and Shadow in Newcastle on Saturday 19th June. It is part of a group show called Versions of the Fifth which will run along side Paint by Numbers, a gig featuring my favorite local band Mass. See below for details.

Kymeera:Cultural Remixes is a newly established organisation that aims primarily to curate unorthodox events and collaborations which fuse live music, performance, visual art and literature. This first outing sees Ged collaborate with Andrew Cleaver – awesome stuff. The official breakdown is this:

An eclectic night featuring visual art and performances from bands representing various genres and style, all followed by DJ sets from a number of individuals to end the night with your dance shoes well worn…

The night kicks off at 6 o’clock with Versions of the Fifth, a group show presenting the art and writings of Toby Lloyd, Steven Walker, Carlo Viglianisi, Mary Quinn, Andrew Donaghy, Christos Worsely, Eilis Hanson and Robbie Hudson. This will form part of the debut event from Kymeera: Cultural Remixes.

Reflective Observation

I have been helping Hannah with her work for this exhibition and some of my photographs will be part of the show.

Exhibition Information:

Durham based artist Hannah Marsden’s new body of work explores a personal conflict between her introverted instincts and extroverted interests. For this exhibition Marsden explores the symbolic potential of the umbrella as a symbol of protection and distinction. Incorporating sculpture, performance and film, Marsden performs undercover research in and around Durham to explore the interconnectivity of humanity and the idea of a universal human nature.

Marsden is a graduate from Newcastle University and has exhibited work at Allenheads Contemporary Arts and Gallery Glue.

Date: Friday, 11 June 2010
Time: 18:00 – 20:00
Location: The DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery
