David Bellingham, Cally Spooner & Jesper List Thomsen
To conclude the Cooper Summer Residency 2012, we are delighted to present the outcomes of the residency in the exhibition Making Words - Marking Words.
Cooper Summer Residency is a space for artists to reflect upon and experiment with new ideas and strategies that will extend their practice. For this year's residency, we hosted artists David Bellingham, Cally Spooner and Jesper List Thomsen to be in residence at the CAB (Centre for Artists' Books), DJCAD. These three artists share a common focus on Artists' Books and text based works, with an interest in exploring expanded notions of the book, writing and reading within the contexts of space/time and performativity: Cally Spooner, has completed several ambitious solo projects and recently a residency at Cite Des Arts Paris; Jesper List Thomsen, a Danish artist living and working in London who has exhibited internationally; and David Bellingham an artist based in Scotland has also exhibited widely across the UK and abroad.
We are pleased to announce that the opening preview event will feature a reading by Cally Spooner from a text written during her residency in Dundee over the summer.
