Parallel Lives at Vane

Parallel Lives

  • to

For ‘Parallel Lives’ Morten Schelde and Flora Whiteley have each made a series of drawings. Schelde combines disparate elements that hover together on the edge of collapse, a moment as short as a sharp intake of breath. Whiteley represents something slower, where the components of her drawings float, transparently: a hovering projected object, a series of slides from a fictional lecture.

Man or Mouse? at Vane

Man or Mouse?

  • to

Tommy Keenan analyses the figural representations of hyper-masculinity experienced in modern culture. Often the work is an examination of macho male stereotypes that seeks to disrupt them and point out the ludicrous nature of the implied expectations, reflecting on society’s expectations of what these gender ‘ideals’ should be.

Artificial Ignorance at Vane

Artificial Ignorance

  • to

Working across drawing, printmaking and digital imaging, Mark Lyons is interested in the role of emerging technology in the production of art and its relationship to more traditional modes of making. Lyons has recently been aiming to automate aspects of his practice using a combination of artificial intelligence and commercial machinery, raising questions around labour, authorship and intentionality.

You’re Reading Into It: Queering Contemporary Minimalism, at Vane

You’re Reading Into It: Queering Contemporary Minimalism

  • to

‘You’re Reading Into It: Queering Contemporary Minimalism’ brings together bodies of work by seven emerging LGBTQ+ artists, curated by artist Oliver Doe. The work focuses on queer readings of Minimalist art and portrayals of LGBTQ+ experience through a minimal abstract lens. Seeking to challenge the machismo often associated with Minimalist art and reclaim a queerness in that visual language, ‘You’re Reading Into It’ highlights the importance of queer and radical feminist issues in the development of contemporary art.
