Cass Research Fellow’s New Exhibition

BETWEEN: Embodiment and Identity is a new exhibition at the Inigo Rooms, Kings College featuring work by Susan Aldworth, Research Fellow in Printmaking at The Cass. Aldworth together with Andrew Carnie and Karen Ingham has been working with King’s neurobiologist Richard Wingate from the MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology. They present works that explore emerging and enriched images of the Self and the ways personal identity has become embedded in a new landscape of anatomical imagery. BETWEEN both celebrates the richness of such scientific research and presents works that collectively challenge technology’s entitlement to mediate form.

Also on display is a Cabinet of Curiosities, containing anatomical artifacts curated to deepen contemplation of the artists’ works. BETWEEN is both a critique and an acknowledgement of the potency of a biomedical revolution in which King’s College plays a leading role.

19 April to 30th June 2012
Private View 18th April 6.00pm-9.00pm

Reading Complex

Leitmotiv

Reading Complex is a curatorial research project initiated by curators Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk and Catherine Y. Serrano, supported by the MA Course Curating the Contemporary at the London Metropolitan University, delivered in conjunction with the Whitechapel Gallery and the Government Art Collection.

Reading Complex forms both the overarching title and leitmotiv for a research platform and a programme of exhibition projects which investigate the notion of reading. Through the introduction of a variety of conditions and configurations, the project intends to consider, show and engage with the ever-changing, but palpable nexus between viewer-reader and image-text.

Cass Lecturer Unravelled

Steven Follen, Senior Lecturer at the Cass, is one of ten selected artists commissioned to produce new work for the ‘Unravelled’ Project at Nymans House and Gardens in West Sussex. The project invited individuals working within the fields of craft and design to propose site-specific work in response to the history and environment of this National Trust property, generating opportunities for visitors to interact with the heritage site in new and different ways.

Steven has been developing a design for the porch entrance to the house in the Forecourt garden.  Using lasercut ply, the design has been inspired by the qualities of light in the house and by research into the shapes and forms from the site including the Messel collection of fans (now in the Fitzwilliam Museum  in Cambridge), the geometry of the Monkey Puzzle Tree and the cones from the Pinetum.

The exhibition will open at Nymans in the Spring of 2012.
