AboutJerwood Visual Arts was intrigued to know how the exhibition programme at Jerwood Space could be developed to help emerging artists in a relevant and exciting way at a crucial stage in their careers. We asked three emerging artists the question: if we were to hand over one of three of the galleries at Jerwood Space for one month, what would you do with it? The three selected artists, Steven Eastwood, Jock Mooney and Mia Taylor, each proposed to use the galleries as a site for experimentation.
The resulting exhibition will attempt to explore the process and discourse surrounding art and exhibition production. The gallery will be a testing ground for new works and a chance to work on larger-scale pieces as the artists temporarily relocate their studios to the gallery space. Steven Eastwood will show some of his films whilst working on a new one, experimenting with formats for a planned feature length film/video intended for dual projection in the gallery. Jock Mooney will make a drawing installation and expand his series of hand-painted, glossy sculptures. Mia Taylor will open up her practice to the âfabric' of the project, using the art, texts, and materials found in and around the site. She will respond to the interactions between the artists, contributors, visitors and other users of Jerwood Space, using a series of screens which will act as a mobile studio space.
