Clarke Gallery is delighted and honoured to bring The Mobility Project to The Meter Room. This is the second stop of this exhibition, which began in Berlin and consists of work by artists mostly based in there. But as the exhibition travels, it picks up other work by local artists (in this case Rebecca Pittman) and invites local speakers to participate in the panel discussion.
 
This exhibition is been made possible through the generous support of Arts Council EnglandCulture Ireland and Coventry Council Small Arts Grants
 
 
“Keep connected, you are never alone, never alone with a mobile phone in your pocket.”[1]
 
 
Over the last decade, particularly since the mass take-up of the mobile phone, the ever-increasing mobility - of people, goods, information and images - has radically altered the way we perceive, interpret, navigate and even describe the world. Notions of presence and absence, solitude and togetherness and even of geography are changing, as our personally tailored collections of contacts, communities, photos and politics are with us 24/7. The way we travel around the places we live in, and how we interact with others whilst we’re there has a great impact on the way we understand not only where we are but also who we are. Communication and movement are, and always have been, closely linked, dictating the scope of our influence. But today, in a world where one tweeted photo can be seen across five continents within seconds, that influence can reach areas and cultures of which we have no concept.
 
Here, seven projects present seven different projections of mobility. From Simon Clark’s epic cycle journey around the UK delivering postcards he picked up from the Galapagos Islands direct into people’s hands to plan b’s live redrawing of their GPS traces gathered over their past year in Berlin direct onto the gallery wall; from Enda O’Donoghue paintings created from low-res mobile phone photos found on the internet to Kerstin Honeit’s multi-city performance-experiments where she instructs women to stand on the same area of pavement for fifteen minutes - and finally from Fedora Romita’s audio recordings of the U-Bahn network of Berlin as a means of getting to know the city she just moved to, to Rebecca Pittman’s two screen video installation of her journey along a featureless road in the states listening to driving music and finally also my own five minute video showing an unexpected moment of stillness on the German Autobahn - these are personal portraits of navigation. But, between them, they touch on wider issues that affect us all as we negotiate our way around the world - including gender, power, surveillance and the relationship between physical and virtual materiality. 
 
A specially commissioned set of limited edition prints by the particapiating artists are available in conjunction with this exhibition, the sales of which will help fund this exhibition’s onward journey. See here for further details: http://www.clarkegallery.de/current/limited-edition-prints/
 
On 21st January at 2pm a panel discussion will take place in the gallery, featuring all the artists in the show, a performance lecture by Kym Ward and guest speaker Alfredo Cramerotti.

POSITIONS at Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork, Ireland

GAIA PROJECTS 

IN ASSOCIATION WITH CIT CRAWFORD COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN ARE PROUD TO PRESENT:


“POSITIONS”

a group exhibition at the CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery running from Friday 6th January – 31st January 2012.

“Is the syntax that requires beginnings, developments and ends as statements of fact the only syntax that exists? That's the real question. There are other syntaxes. 
There is one, for example, which demands that varieties of intensity be taken as facts. In that syntax nothing begins and nothing ends; thus birth is not a clean, clear-cut event, but a specific type of intensity, and so is maturation, and so is death.”

Carlos Castaneda: “The Active Side of Infinity”

Why do certain artists choose to follow traditional methods of creating art, while others feel free to make videos, performance and installation?

Is there a place for tradition within contemporary practice, or has today’s cutting edge art lost sight of skill and craft?

While a love for tradition may hold back certain artists from exploring new syntaxes, does the freedom to create anything in any way mean that contemporary art is being made in a vacuum? Or are both directions simply differing “intensities” of creation?

This exhibition seeks to explore the various artistic positions that artists have taken and why.

This Cross-Cultural Art Exhibition is an arts intervention as a means to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the twinning between Limerick and Quimper. As there were no official celebrations in place to celebrate this anniversary, a group of artists from Limerick and Quimper came together in active citizenship and decided that the 30 year anniversary of this cultural union was indeed worth celebrating. These exhibitions include current and ex staff and students of Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT., and Ecole Europeenne Superieure d'Art, Quimper. The corresponding exhibition takes place in Quimper on Tuesday 08/11/2011 until Thursday 10/11/2011. This “Artist Twinning” is the first in a series of proposed cross cultural exhibitions; next year’s collaboration includes a city in Spain.

À l'initiative de Mathilde Hervé et de Christelle Travert et pour célébrer le 30 ème anniversaire du jumelage entre Limerick et Quimper et favoriser les relations culturelles entre les deux villes, vous êtes cordialement invités au vernissage ( consommations payante) qui se tiendra le Lundi 07 Novembre 2011 à 18h00 en compagnie des artistes venu de Limerick , au Prieuré de Locmaria , à Quimper . Cet événement se fait l'écho du premier vernissage qui a eu lieu la semaine précédente avec des jeunes artistes quimpérois à Limerick en Irlande .

“Keep connected, you are never alone, never alone with a mobile phone in your pocket.”1
 
Over the last decade, particularly since the mass take-up of the mobile phone, the ever-
increasing mobility - of people, goods, information and images - has radically altered the 
way we perceive, interpret, navigate and even describe the world. Notions of presence 
and absence, solitude and togetherness and even of geography are changing, as our 
personally tailored collections of contacts, communities, photos and politics are with us 
24/7. The way we travel around the places we live in, and how we interact with others 
whilst we’re there, has a great impact on the way we understand not only where we are
but also who we are. Communication and movement are, and always have been, closely 
linked, dictating the scope of our influence. But today, in a world where one tweeted 
photo can be seen across five continents within seconds, that influence can reach areas 
and cultures of which we have no concept.
 
Here, six projects present six different approaches to the project of mobility. From 
Simon Clark’s epic cycle journey around the UK delivering postcards he picked up from 
the Galapagos Islands direct into people’s hands to plan b’s live redrawing of their GPS 
traces gathered over their past year in Berlin direct onto the gallery wall; from Enda 
O’Donoghue paintings created from low-res mobile phone photos found on the internet 
to Kerstin Honeit’s multi-city performance-experiments where she instructs women to 
stand on the same area of pavement for fifteen minutes - and finally from Fedora 
Romita’s audio recordings of the U-Bahn network of Berlin as a means of getting to 
know the city she just moved to, to my own five minute video showing an unexpected 
moment of stillness on the German autobahn - these are personal portraits of 
navigation. But, between them, they touch on wider issues that affect us all as we 
negotiate our way around the world C including gender, power, surveillance and the 
relationship between physical and virtual materiality. 
 
Elly Clarke is an artist & curator based in Berlin and Birmingham, UK.
 
A series of artist talks and related events will take place during the run of this exhibition 
and a specially commissioned set of limitedCedition prints by each of the artists released 
at the opening. Please check the gallery website for further details and updates.
