Past exhibitions

EC Davies; Flatland; at Vane

Flatland

  • to

EC Davies’s previous work has taken its inspiration from the simplest of everyday objects – such as marbles, glitter, balls of wool, or the motion of a bird’s wing in flight. These otherwise mundane objects are then transformed, using a combination of digital video and animation techniques, into the alluring and magical visual environments of her single and multi-screen digital video and animated installations.

25 Days

  • to

Sara MacKillop takes mass-produced found objects, slightly manipulating or juxtaposing them to re-focus attention towards their formal qualities. Their useful life finished, these objects are resurrected by MacKillop, who rescues them from the thrift-store and grants them new life and gives them sanctuary within the gallery.

Jock Mooney: I wish I had electricity in my fingers then I’d blast ya; at Vane

I wish I had electricity in my fingers then I’d blast ya

  • to

Jock Mooney’s work explores the cultural outpourings of the human mind, whether his own or that of the world at large. His work can be seen as concerned with the liberation of the human spirit through confronting us with our own everyday ridiculousness, an anarchic and never-ending project of emancipation that attempts to break apart oppressive and redundant forms of thought and clear a path for the imagination.

Craig Fisher: Uncontrollable; at Vane

Uncontrollable

  • to

Craig Fisher’s work challenges our habits of viewing. Located outside of traditional boundaries, Fisher’s work stubbornly refuses to conform to being any one thing, discipline, state or position. Be it image or object – the work remains uncontrollable.

Dodda Maggý: Video/Music; at Vane

Video/Music

  • to

Dodda Maggý creates a series of female characters based on personal experiences, which are then enacted in front of a video camera, accompanied by piano music composed and played by herself, sometimes re-worked using a simple recording technique, building layers as if sculpting. She creates audiovisual narratives that objectify the female body without degrading it to the status of a mere object.

Ordinary monuments; at Vane

Ordinary monuments

  • to

‘Ordinary monuments’ brings together work by Jorn Ebner and Alison Unsworth that examines the urban environment, considering both its planned and random nature and highlighting aspects that often go unnoticed.

Miranda Whall: Where the monkey sleeps; at Vane

Where the monkey sleeps

  • to

Miranda Whall's drawings, photographs, videos and, most recently, animations are self-portraits. Whall explores her own identity in an attempt to recognise herself in relation to both the accessible and inaccessible, natural and man-made world around her. Through placing herself at the centre of both fictional worlds and real life situations she is able to make assumptions about what she might or might not be. The placement can seem at times inappropriate, awkward, humorous and erotic.

They call us lonely when we’re really just alone; at Vane

They call us lonely when we’re really just alone

  • to

Whilst the artists in this exhibition can be described as engaged in drawing, and share a meticulous, sometimes obsessive, even adolescent relationship to their subject matter, their work represents four very different approaches to the medium.

Orphan; at Vane

Orphan

  • to

‘Orphan’ comprises the work of three artists who deal with depictions of the once removed and the disconnected via representations of people, objects and symbols, all of which in some way disturb established orders – be they psychological, domestic or social.
