7 – 22 November 2015
Preview: Friday 6 November 2015, 6-9pm
Following their joint exhibition in Denmark, and continuing their exploration of the theme of ‘home’, UK artists brook & black are collaborating with Danish artists Christina Bredahl Duelund and Natascha Thiara Rydvald. In May 2015, the artists worked together for the first time, with ‘Composing Space’ – a group exhibition at the Gjethuset Gallery, Denmark. The second part of this exchange has resulted in the exhibition, Arkitektoniske Kramper,* where the artists use moving sculpture, video, photography, installation and sound to transform the OVADA warehouse into a multi-layered exploration of the architectural and mental space of their shared experiences. The artists are presenting new work, both collaborative and individual, as well as reconfiguring some elements and motifs that played their part in Gjethuset Gallery, Denmark, the site of their first collaboration.
On Friday 6 November 2015 4-6pm, the symposium: Pulling Together/Pulling Apart: Forces in Creative Collaboration, will take place at OVADA, before the Exhibition Preview at 6pm. Guest speakers, Steven Fowler and Tamarin Norwood, will join the exhibiting artists in discussion. This is a FREE event. Please reserve a place by sending your name and amount of places required to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This exhibition is part of Oxford’s Christmas Light Festival. There will be a special late opening on Friday 20 November 2015, 6-9pm.
Open: Thursdays – Sundays, 12-6pm
