Usurp Arts Lab #2 'Protected state of Development'


Following the success of the first Usurp Arts Lab in 2010, we bring you a new Autumnal cornucopia of artists emerging from the chrysalis of education. Eleven artists cajole and entice you to enter their worlds interrupting the gallery space with their offerings and suggestions. Join us on our opening night for a new performance by Nathalie Heatherington and Sarah Fowler. Hovering around a spotlit table, visitors wait to induce the artists to make decisions. Tonight is also open for submissions from visitors - you are welcome to come and show a video piece or do a performance. Highlights include Alice Turner's coin operated peeping machines, Sarah Fowler's 'Waiting Room' and Lara Kenworthy's video pieces provide a fore and back ground for a changing space in which Linda Nagajeva's latest video work doubles as an absurdist, ephemeral memorial to family anecdote. Mark Strickson's pen drawing 'Face in Time', an exploration of how the human figure moves through space and time will interface with Katy O'Donovan's sculptures from the series 'Coated' and Nathalie Heatherington's sculptural work which wants to question whether the desire to create and use technology more efficiently has brought us into conflict with our own bodies".
