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.
Maria Chevska’s solo exhibition consists of a large series of recent paintings, From the Diary of a Fly, and collage sculptures on plinths entitled Muniments. In her paintings and three-dimensional collages, Chevska explores both media’s capacities to shift and evolve ideas: of representation through the gestures of her painting, and of social forms through her collages.next
In ‘Existence Experiments’, Stu Herring exhibits the preparatory drawings of his recent performances as well as drawings of unrealised or imaginary projects. Herring creates work to expand his personal understanding of existence and society, he undertakes ceremonial tasks designed to alter his perceived reality and challenge that of the viewer’s perception of ‘normal’ or ‘ordinary’ behaviour.next

Zoë Anderson: A Walk Announced
