THE CRYPT GALLERY ARTISTS RESIDENCY 2014: BETWEEN TWO LINES
MA Fine Art Graduate from Chelsea College of Art and Design, Eugene Macki, will spend one week in the Crypt Gallery developing new works in connection to the space. He will use the gallery as a working arena; the occurring and continuous change will allow the work to embody different moods and characteristics. The residency will conclude in a three-day exhibition from Monday 28 to Wednesday 30 July. The gallery will be open throughout the residency; so visitors can see the work in progress before its final manifestation.
Macki is particularly interested in using materials found inside or around the area, so they have a history or a connection with the gallery. The focus of the project will be on site specificity, transformation and meditation. The space will be the subject matter for this project. The final exhibition will have materials such as documents, artefact's, sketches, models and photographs including a video performance.
About the Artist Eugene Macki completed his MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art and Design in 2011. Prior to that he studied BA Contemporary Fine Art and Philosophy from Sheffield Hallam University. Since graduating: “I have been making different types of artwork – from Sculpture, Painting, Installation and Performance. I am interested in the model of experience and this includes: characters, space (architecture), materials and the way things are connected, or the state of being connected. I always try to engage with the site in my work simply because I believe ‘non white cube’ spaces are extremely powerful, which makes it even more complex if the work is not strong enough or willing to compromise. My interest in site specificity allows me to consider the relationship between my work and everything else - or the positioning in connection to the architecture.”
