This was Bound to Happen Sooner or Later;
solo exhibition by Molly Rooke
comes to Studio KIND. in the spring

 

This was Bound to Happen Sooner Or Later showcases a new body of work exploring themes of preservation and restoration through coastal geography and heritage. Using traditional methods of domestic fixing and repair in an expanded form, the work focuses on the degradation and erosion of the Somerset and Devon Coastline and what might be considered futile attempts to protect it from being eroded any further.

Englishness is a Moving Target
solo exhibition by Chris Alton
postponed to 27th August

 

Chris's work addresses the interconnected nature of prevailing social, political, economic and environmental conditions. In 2012, he founded English Disco Lovers (EDL), an anti-fascist, pro-disco group, which looked to reclaim the EDL acronym of the English Defence League. Drawing upon the history and etymology of disco, as a site of musical resistance, he redeployed the genre in opposition to a contemporary iteration of fascism.

Studio KIND. presents: Ian Andrews artist talk

Join Ian Andrews to discuss his solo exhibition at Studio KIND. and the value of trans-disciplinary collaborative work.

Artist Ian Andrews and Prof Kostas Nikolopoulos, from the University of Birmingham particle physics group, have been collaborating for five years searching for equivalents between the language of drawing and the interactions of elemental particles. The exhibition at Studio-KIND Media, Matter and Energy takes advantage of the tall space and is a site-specific installation of enormous drawings based on the ATLAS detector at CERN attempting to fuse the huge scale of equipment needed for particle physics research with drawn equivalents to the quantum scale particle interactions. For those who have already visited the exhibition there will be a chance to see pieces that were not included giving further insight into the working methods and relationship between the disciplines.

 

Saturday 21st August, 7-8:30pm, £10. Booking is essential via Eventbrite

Studio KIND. is excited to present the work of Gabriela Giroletti

 

Gabriela is a Brazilian born painter, currently living and working in London. Her work explores visual contemplation and the impalpable awareness of oneself, sitting between objectivity and subjectivity. Where we believe perception presents us the world as it truly is, Gabriela explores such perception as mediated by our bodily senses, and by our individual life experiences. At Once and a Touch Away is a collection of large-scale and miniature works.

Cathedral, solo exhibition of new works by Peter Stiles opens as a virtual exhibition

Cathedral is a new solo exhibition of paintings by North Devon-based artist Peter Stiles. Recently he began a series of paintings about football which enabled him to tell stories. The football pictures stemmed from the memory of how, as a small boy, he was torn between loyalty to his local team and supporting a bigger more glamorous club instead. These pictures of footballers have allowed him to explore the relationship between home and a wider cultural context, and the fruitful tension between tending your own neck of the woods and reaching out towards broader horizons.
