RIFT at Vane


  • to

‘RIFT’ explores the lore surrounding fortune telling, dream states and the human psyche. Mani Kambo has experimented with various printing methods to create abstract, dream-like visuals, developing ideas explored in her recent exhibition, ‘Semblance’, at System Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne. Through collage and layered imagery, the work acts like fragments of memory left behind for the viewer to piece together.

Feed at Vane


  • to

‘FEED’ brings together a body of work created by Zara Worth since 2016. Concerned with our relationships with hand-held technology and social media, Worth’s practice has been described by curator Tyler Robarge as ‘swipe-specific’: using online culture and technology as subject and medium for artworks with on- and offline lives. Throughout the exhibition materials and methods of creative production point to themes of value, presence and self-image in the social media age. Materials such as rice paper, 23.5 carat gold, void fill, celery, and artificial roses, have symbolic and cultural value and thereby provide metaphors through which to read online culture.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2017

  • to

The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. Selected from original drawings, the prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of current drawing practice, this year including hand drawn, digital, moving image, textile and sculptural works. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice.

3,200 Colours

Rachael Clewlow creates rigorous and detailed recordings of her everyday movements. Meticulously documenting this mass of information in diaries, this abstract record of the banal to the unexpected becomes a form of trace from which Clewlow begins to construct paintings and prints.

The Vagaries and Misconceptions of the Modern Man at Vane

The Vagaries and Misconceptions of the Modern Man

  • to

‘The Vagaries and Misconceptions of the Modern Man’ brings together recent sculptural works by Ralph Darbyshire, Richard Hollinshead and Kenneth Ross in an exhibition that explores the fallibilities in seemingly certain masculine positions. Figurative in the broadest sense, these sculptural works collectively engage with difficult material, whether brashly explicit or operating as a disquieting undercurrent; and whether concerned with political unrest, sexuality, violence or male body image.

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.
