Jennie Speirs Grant: Observations not taken today…: at Vane

Observations not taken today…

  • to

Jennie Speirs Grant presents a series of drawings transcribed directly from spring birdsong. Using a system of visual notation, each is a representation of an ever-changing soundscape. The series explores Speirs Grant’s interest in drawing as a means of collecting data from the world. In this instance, the works are sequences of data extracted from a living environment. They differ from the more usual forms of observational drawing in that the information gathered is auditory rather than visual.

Jorn Ebner: Across the wounded universe; at Vane

Across the wounded universe

  • to

Jorn Ebner’s recent work has emerged from his interests in the danse macabre, the mediaeval allegory on death, the literature of American novelist William S Burroughs and French poet Charles Baudelaire, and the songs of John Lennon, whose murder had enormous impact on the artist as a teenager.

Dwelling

Amie Rangel’s exhibition, ‘Dwelling’, consists of large-scale charcoal drawings on linen, mixed media drawings on paper, and stone lithographs. This new body of work represents her ongoing investigation of the organisation of spatial constructs within modern society.

Dawn Felicia Knox: Working the Stasis: Tending the Shadows

Working the Stasis: Tending the Shadows

  • to

‘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.

Institute of Monochrome Art, Volume 1

  • to

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.
