'Vane Shorts 2' presents works by five artists, each of whom explores play and recreation in their work, ranging from the combination of formalist sculptural techniques with domestic and utilitarian elements (Beech), military re-enactments (Clamp), a carnivalesque parade of twisted figures (Mooney), to videos of low-fi inventions (Pearl) or seemingly random actions and scenes that evoke other things (Phipps).

'Vane Shorts' marks the introduction of a new strand to Vane's programme, one that will continue to be a component of the gallery's programme in future years. Over four consecutive weeks (Fridays 23 & 30 November, 7 & 14 December) the gallery will present a different group exhibition each week, lasting just for the one day. These first four exhibitions also serve to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Vane's foundation and showcase the work of some of the local, national, and international artists that have been involved with Vane both past and present, as well as including a selection of young and emerging artists showing at the gallery for the first time.
