Idea Generating Machines at Vane

Idea Generating Machines

  • to

Sheyda Porter’s ‘Idea Generating Machines’ celebrates the sculptural possibilities of discarded everyday objects as representations of the mundane world. Porter has an intimate, personal way of perceiving abandoned items, transforming them into aesthetic objects. The repeated gesture of applying paint rids these objects of their practical connotations, reducing them to their ‘thingness’ in order to redefine and reinterpret them. She creates the illusion of mere physical material without a history or a beginning.

Mutations; at Vane


  • to

Vane is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition in the UK by Lithuanian artist Andrius Erminas.

In ‘Mutations’ Erminas creates multi-layered sculptural compositions that transform the everyday, using easily recognised objects, both natural and man-made, to create new and personal stories. The objects are transformed not only physically but emotionally and symbolically.

Half-light; at Vane


  • to

‘Half-light’ brings together a body of work created by Nick Fox over the last three years, including new paintings, sculptures and cyanotype prints. The works function as a mirror to the artist’s emotional life, charting Fox’s enduring motivations of longing, desire, seduction, love and loss.

Triangular surface areas

  • to

In ‘Triangular surface areas’ Berlin based sculptor, Anna Gatjal, presents a new installation that explores the complex relationship between the material world with its physical limitations and the seemingly unlimited possibilities of the mathematical and virtual realm. The installation continues Gatjal’s fascination with the sublime beauty and symmetry of classical geometry.

Contactless; at Vane


  • to

Nick Christie records the subtle, liminal marks and gestures made during the processes of drawing and printmaking. In his recent series of Solarplate and mono prints, the whirls and tracks of the artist’s smeared fingerprints form images that explore the constantly changing nature of everyday communications as we increasingly move from the physical interaction with the real printed page to its simulation on the screen of the smart phone and tablet.

Vox Pop

In ‘Vox Pop’, Christopher Rollen explores various ways of presenting both personal and collective histories. Doegen Revisited (2012-15) is an audio-visual archive of sixty-six etchings and recordings of Germany-based British expatriates’ voices made in response to the sixty-six British and Irish voices in Wilhelm Doegen’s Lautarchiv (sound archive), recorded between 1916 and 1918 and held on shellac vinyl records at Berlin’s Humboldt Universität.

Barbaric Comedies

Vane is pleased to be taking part in an homage to one of Spain’s most influential contemporary filmmakers and artists, Josep Joan Bigas Luna (1946-2013), in a collaboration with Durham University, the Tyneside Cinema, and ¡Vamos! Festival.

‘Barbaric Comedies’, curated by Betty Bigas and Santiago Fouz Hernández, showcases some of Bigas Luna’s controversial video artwork, including the famous short Necklace of Flies and the five-piece video installation ‘Barbaric Comedies’, which was inspired by the well-known work of Spanish dramatist Valle-Inclán.
