A HIGH FIVE IN A DARK PLACE

Simone Clarke

Linking memories, places and day dreams, I use traditional knitting and crocheting techniques to produce a painting that brings these elements together. This piece has been developed from work exhibited at the Betamaps show, Total Kunst, 2010.<

CHRISTINE DOBBIE Arabic Cats
2nd - 31st July

‘I am Nes the cat, superior being of all time, ruler of this house and I also designed this rug.’

The positions and places in which cats choose to lie has an interesting relationship with the patterns around them, seemingly intentional.

The cats and the rugs become part of the same thing, the man-made comes across natural, quite geometric and the two become entangled.

Irvine and Noble3rd - 30th June 2013

The surrealists referred to the term Exquisite Corpse and it is this term that best defines the nature of Irvine and Noble&#8217;s practice. Each artist begins a drawing, the works are then exchanged over a period time to evolve the image until a satisfactory level of completion has been reached. Their drawn styles share a symbiotic relationship on paper, each artist bringing his own style and crucial reaction to the visual challenges set by the other, creating an organic and ever evolving narrative. Irvine and Noble have continued their practice over the years by air mailing drawings between Taiwan, Hong Kong and Scotland.

4by8 Gallery PresentsRuby Bayley-Pratt
1st - 30th May

“I came upon a single feather, a half-hearted wish for something better.”
This series is based upon a theory of mine: “A Ribbon Around A Lamp-post”. Years ago I was on the school bus daydreaming out the window and we drove past a lamp-post with a blue ribbon tied in a perfect bow around it. The beauty of that little ribbon tied all the way up there, a flash of colour on something usually so dull, so mundane, clicked with something deep inside me. Since then, I’ve focused on seeing the beauty in the little thing; on appreciating the tiniest details that we so often pass by. The way a beam of light hits a bit of moss, the way a petal has landed in the grass, the way a feather balances perfectly on the water surface. Ruby x”

4:8 Gallery presentsCastles Built In Sand
2nd - 29th April

A collective of independent filmmakers, photographers, musicians, artists and writers, Castles Built in Sand (CBIS) exists to observe, document, explore and share ways of working. Their approach to critical and creative work is to allow time and space for self-reflexive/questioning thought-processes to take place, as a means of uncovering meaningful trends in society. Through these ways of working they hope to produce observational documents that arouse open-ended and inclusive debate.

Here CBiS present work from two of their recent studies: Ghosts and the Machine and Helpyourself Manchester.

On April 8the, also at The Forest, CBIS will be screening their recently completed documentary film Helpyourself Manchester - alongside two short films from local D.I.Y. filmmaker Jamie Khrist.

4:8 Gallery presentsJESSICA SCHOUELA: VACANT KINETICS (photographs on acetate) 16th Feb - 28th Feb

More and more, I feel confronted with what I have come to identify as a severe social apathy, not only to that which is distant, but also to that which is often closest to us. In a world of infinite choices of capital, ephermeral encounters, growingly mediated through technology, we may not be advancing as we believe, not progressing or evolving, but rather, vibrating, buzzing, perhaps with hidden meditations that there is some real movement, and that perhaps, it is in an alright direction.
