For this event our current Standpoint Futures resident artist Collette Rayner will present a short publication of new material made during her residency.
This will coincide with an open discussion and ‘in conversation’ with Andrea Francke. Please join us for food and drink from 7pm.
Collette Rayner's practice focuses on model-making as a methodology and as a subject of research. Throughout the residency her work has focused on investigations into the insular world of hobbyists, model makers and micro nationalists and aspects of privacy and piracy surrounding each organisation’s assertion of craft, capital and community structures.
Collette Rayner (b. 1990 Dundee) lives and works in Glasgow, and graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2012
Andrea Francke (b.1978 Lima, Peru) is a graduate of Open School East whose most recent projects include The Piracy Project, a collaboration with Eva Weinmayr that explores authorship, copyright and publishing and Invisible Spaces of Parenthood, with Kim Dhillon. She is currently working towards opening a pub with Eva Rowson and Ross Jardine as a way to enact their research on administering, hosting and nurturing in an everyday practice
Taking place at Standpoint Gallery, London, Standpoint Futures Residencies are for emerging/mid career artists, designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop the artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.
Standpoint Futures 2015 includes Zoe Williams (Scotland), Collette Rayner (Fenton Arts Trust), Thomas Goddard (Wales), Brian J Morrison (England)
