The PROJECT invites artists to engage with the outside environment, pushing practices away from the studio/gallery and into a shed, garden patio and disused chicken coop.
This aim seeks to respond to the stagnation of free and autonomous art spaces in Brighton, cultivating a regular offering of exhibitions that focuses solely on the artists and their practice.
The KOOP PROJECT will terminate after 10 months and all participation thereafter is thus withdrawn.
The KOOP PROJECT is also home to Surrenden Sculpture Garden.
The orange is a moment. Not forgetting the orange is one thing. Recalling the orange is another thing. Rejoining it is another. At least three times are needed in order to begin to understand the infinite immensity of the moment....I am beginning to measure its importance...the orange is a beginning. Starting out from the voyage all voyages are possible. All voices that go her way are good.
For the 6th Koop Project, artist Athene Greig presents a collection of new site-specific work, taking courage from Helene Cixous’ ‘Vivre L’Orange’ (To Live the Orange). Intended to provoke questions through fragmented and re-assembled imagery, her work combines a sense of playfulness with the poetic.
Athene Greig is a London based painter currently on the Turps Banana studio programme.
Athene Greig is 1/4 of DUPE; a London based collective, printed zine and blog.
#6. Athene Greig is on show for one night only:
Saturday 18th June
6pm - 9pm
