Suppose An Eyes; at Vane

Suppose An Eyes

  • to

An international touring exhibition that takes its title from American poet, novelist and art collector Gertrude Stein’s modernist, abstract text, Tender Buttons (1914), a group reading of which provided the catalyst for the project. As the text approaches its centenary the three artists are testing its relevance to contemporary art practice. They have used it as a catalyst for discussions, cross-referencing Stein’s textual abstraction with their own practices.

Michael Mulvihill: The Pursuit of Happiness; at Vane

The Pursuit of Happiness

  • to

‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ stands as an ironic title for Michael Mulvihill’s first solo exhibition for Vane, comprising a series of drawings that reveal the artist’s dark, apocalyptic vision. The tiny scale of the drawings refers to the online thumbnails from where the images have been appropriated. One group depicts explosions from nuclear tests carried out by the United States and the Soviet Union during the arms race of the Cold War.

Stephen Palmer: The end has no end; at Vane

The end has no end

  • to

For his third solo exhibition at Vane Stephen Palmer has produced a series of drawings based on clippings from daily newspapers. The depicted stories are not strictly speaking ‘news’ but rather they look to update or reanalyse historic events. Each clipping is painstakingly rendered in word perfect detail, a process of transcription that has the effect of conferring value and worth to events that may otherwise appear of little relevance or importance.
