ViaViaVia

Via

Curated by Stefhan Caddick, Via presents the digital work of twelve artists. This exhibition is a journey into the concept of mapping, how we locate ourselves, and the very notion of making a journey from a beginning to an end point. The work allows the viewer to make a side step and tackle the idea of mapping from different perspectives, mapping memory, space, sound and of course virtual spaces.

TaleTaleTale

Tale

In association with UWN

Tale is a collection of works evaluating the breadth of work produced by Sear since 1992, and holds the key to Sear's exhibition at g39. It highlights the occurrence of narrative throughout her work as well as the necessary frictions and connections between adjacent images. Previously her work has been viewed in chapters, one coherent body of research following another in carefully balanced exhibitions; with this exhibition and the accompanying publication and essay we can begin to see the connections and links that make Sear’s work an enthralling experience.

Tale also includes an accompanying narrative text written by David Chandler, director of Photoworks in Brighton. It was produced in association with University of Wales, Newport.

Toby Huddlestone

For the John Gingell Award, Toby Hulddlestone rearranged the traditional timeline and hierarchies of an exhibition. His first action was to assemble an editorial board who were invited to produce a retrospective book of his work. The book is in response to Toby's entire archive of works, from the humblest early-college awkward life drawings through to accomplished works involving a number of collaborators and roles. The decisions and tangential content of the book was devolved to the editorial board who met regularly in Unit#3 where the process of creating content was always in the public eye. Those decisions shaped what Toby installed in g39 during the exhibition.
Produced by Toby in collaboration with Zoe and Christabel Gingell, Tim Davies, S Mark Gubb, Michael Cousin, Anthony Shapland and Chris Brown.

Picsel+ CD Rom

Originally devised for an LED public display board in Cardiff, Picsel+ intervened in the public space with moving images that had no political leaning or market drive. They invited passers-by into a new world that either worked with or disrupted the city’s usual outlook.
This CD-Rom is a compilation of more than 40 selected artists' moving image works - each only 15 seconds long and with no soundtrack.

Feedback

Feedback

'Four months ago one of my films posted on You Tube was inexplicably highlighted in a Google search. Thousands of people viewed it in a matter of days. I was inundated with comments; many were angry and often included personal attacks. At first I deleted them, then I tried to answer some of them but was usually met with more anger and/or ridicule. Finally as the views approached one million I decided to package all the comments: good, bad and undecipherable into this book. They are printed in chronological order.'

Bedwyr Williams Print

Bedwyr Williams Print

Max Beuys (2010)

Bedwyr Williams' work employs a deadpan humour and a surreal fascination with life, often in the guise of various characters such as a florist, the Grim Reaper or a Welsh Bard.

No one seems to be off limits to Williams’ club comic performances, crude drawings or sculptural installations that poke a finger at everything from artists’ egos, national identity to the ludicrousness of someone’s trousers. Although not immediately obvious, there is a real tenderness and heart to much of his work, albeit combined with the randomness of an internet search or pub conversation.

Jo Berry Print

Jo Berry Print

Untitled (2010)

Jo Berry often works with images either cut from newspapers or taken with a mobile phone camera, coloured copied or re-photographed. Painted with an airbrush, the paintings become distanced from the original image suggesting an alternative meaning or exaggerating an element of the original, a blurring of both the image and the meaning.

Berry’s paintings have a dreamy or unreal quality coming from the sense of time slowed down. Due to their subject matter’s origin, there is a small sense of recognition resulting in a feeling of dislocation.

Manon Awst & Benjamin Walther Print

Cop out (2010)

Awst & Walther's backgrounds in architecture and theatre strongly influence their exploration into relationships between human beings and their physical surroundings. The couple work with a range of media including sculpture, performance, drawing and installation. With their subtle yet critical approach, they put society's governing values and accepted codes of behavior under scrutiny.

Miranda Whall Print

Untitled (2010)

Whall constructs fantasy scenarios, making humorous, unlikely and uncanny connections, dynamics and relationships. Whall's work is extremely personal, exhibitionist and explicit, representing her sexual, fertile, expressive and intimate self in order to draw attention to and discuss the appropriateness and place for the politics surrounding feminine identity and of trying to be the author and owner of her own sexual and feminine image.

Pascal-Michel Dubois Print

Pascal-Michel Dubois Print

Meteor IV (2010)

Michel-Dubois' practice can be seen as a device to invite the spectator to question and investigate our familiar fields of knowledge and imagination. The material of the everyday initiates his curiosity. Dubois is interested in the capacity that art owns to take you from that space in that moment, to another space. He regards his work as an idle observation of life like a doodle, therefore, it is always in the making, constantly re-interpreting the fabric of reality.

Peter Finnemore Print

The Age of Saints (2010)

Peter Finnemore is photographic artist who works within a context of fine art ideas. His images evolve from an ongoing artistic investigation which began as an exploration into the notion of home, memory, story and history within a Welsh cultural context.

His photographic artwork can be seen as a construction of ideas, blending fact and fiction, history and myth, observation and manufacture.

Richard Bevan Print

Split Second (2010)

Richard Bevan’s work deals with the tension between film as a medium and light as its agent. It sidesteps the nostalgic trappings of film and offers the viewer the chance to experience a lyrical and contemporary aspect of the medium’s processes. His use of film technology is such that it also interrogates photographic traditions.

S Mark Gubb print

The new pornography (2010)

The subjects for S Mark Gubb's work are drawn from the social and political culture he grew up in; an equal fascination with things he finds so great and so terrible about the world we live in. Often drawing on music and religious forms of communication Gubb suggests a wider discourse around history, culture and belief systems, inviting us to reflect on our moral codes and desire and ability to impact upon and change the world we inhabit.

Simon Holly print

Simon Holly print

No. 60126 Sir Vincent Raven at York (2010)

For this incredibly ambitious drawing Simon Holly studied an archive image of York railway station from 1950s. Isolating 1cm2 at a time, he recreated each fragment from memory using graphite and charcoal pencils. The resulting fragments were then reassembled back into a memorised version that bears a startling accuracy to the original image.

Simon Holly is interested in the process of sampling, taking a mass of visual information and reconstructing it. Working with glossy low-culture posters or popular imagery he deconstructs and meticulously re-assembles them, transformed and subverted.

A Monument to Mr Berlusconi (2010)

At a cursory level, Will Woon’s practice may seem rooted rather soberly in the traditional, referencing Classical sculpture and notable historical figures. While this is true, it doesn’t take long for an inquisitive viewer to spot another level where his idiosyncrasies and obscure nuttiness are at play.
