AboutThe Peer Programme is a forum for opening up conversation and debate between members: artists, writers, readers, thinkersâ¦ and will have a strong focus on members presenting recent works that might benefit from this process. A programme of visits to artists' studios will run throughout the year, and, as many members will have a non or post-studio practice, or just prefer a different format for discussion to develop, there will also be Domino nights.
Domino nights involve one member choosing another, and the second member choosing a third, to present separately, (or should you wish together), recent work still in a state of progress.
Visual works, video, audio, online, readings and writings, are all welcome material for discussion. When possible, presentations will be held in the project space and equipment will be provided that can accommodate most formats, incl projector, audio system etc (please specify in advance).
We hope that a lively conversation can develop that will benefit all participants. Gatecrashers welcome for the first meeting, but to be fair to all members, please join AMPP and contribute to our growing network.
Julia Tcharfus, Anna Barham, and Louisa Martin.
Continuing our Domino nights meetings we have the pleasure of the company of Julia Tcharfus, Anna Barham, and Louisa Martin. They will be presenting recent work and projects, for discussion, for about half an hour each from 7-9 Wednesday the 12th March, all members are very welcome to join us.
Please find brief biog's below:
Julia Tcharfas (born 1982, Ukraine) lives and work in London. Tcharfas is currently working as Curatorial Assistant at the Science Museum, London, on the Cosmonauts exhibition opening in 2014. A significant part of her work is a collaborative practice with Timothy Ivison.
Recent collaborative projects include Systems Learning from the Inside, 21st Century, Chisenhale Gallery, Render, Hilary Crisp (both 2013).
Anna Barham (1974) is an artist based in London working primarily with video and writing. She uses technological processes in the production of texts that explore the plasticity of language and the relationship between subjectivity and system.
In 2013 through a public research residency at Site Gallery, Sheffield she developed a new 2 channel video Double Screen (not quite tonight jellylike). She will talk about the processes from which it is constructed and the loose ends leading on from it.
Other recent projects include the Convention T residency at Wysing Arts Centre; spoken performances at Turner Contemporary, Flat Time House and the ICA; and a commission for Art on the Underground at White City.
Louisa Martin (1983) works across live performance, sound, video and drawing, exploring physiological states as 'spaces' that are both expressed and created by the body and it's (moving) images.
Louisa recently won the Whitstable Biennale Open Submission Award. She will be discussing the commissioned work in progress, due to be exhibited at the 2014 Biennale.
Recent performances and exhibitions include The Everything and Nothing Problem, Jerwood Space, London, Of Course, Stour Valley Arts, Kent, and Album2, Five Years, London. Louisa is based in London, and is an Associate Artist with Stour Valley Arts.
