To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of the gallery, ‘Ten’ showcases the work of nineteen international artists represented by Vane. With artists from Germany, Denmark, Iceland, South Africa, the USA, as well as the UK, working across painting, drawing, sculpture and video, ‘Ten’ provides a snapshot of each individual artist’s practice.

‘Working the Stasis’, by artist Dawn Felicia Knox, is an exploration of the tension between objects and the biological processes that work to degrade them. The point of investigation is Hadrian’s Wall, stretching across Northern England. The monument, surrounding settlements and artefacts found there appear as if unchanged after thousands of years.next
To launch Vane’s new Project Space, Paul Jex is exhibiting work from his Institute of Monochrome Art (IOMA). Each piece consists of the pairing of two artists who have worked, or continue to work in a single colour and explores, documents and questions the monochrome and the artists’ interest in it, highlighting both the similarities and differences.
Simon Le Ruez’s third solo exhibition at Vane presents works carefully and seductively choreographed within the space in response to the artist’s growing desire to construct in situ work, transforming the dynamic methodology of his studio practice within the gallery walls.next
A Globe Gallery presentation hosted by Vane, ‘Thirteen’ is a photographic installation by London based artist George Chakravarthi. Commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, to mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, the works on show portray thirteen of Shakespeare’s tragic characters all of whom meet their ends through suicide.
For her first solo exhibition with Vane, Alison Unsworth presents new work created during the last six months – developed from found objects, such as souvenirs, street furniture, and photographs – that displays her longstanding fascination with the built environment and, increasingly, in the wildlife and in particular the birdlife within it.
The bleu Project aims to blur the dividing line between undergraduate and postgraduate artists in a collaborative exhibition. ‘Trans-it’ embraces the role of the contemporary, travelling artist. These works are brought together through the shared examination of humour and narrative in a playful take on the notion of travel.
