Thursday 1st November – Sunday 25th November | Motorcade/FlashParade, BV Studios, 37 Philip Street, Bristol
Who? Julian Claxton, Johana Hartwig, Samuel Hasler and Laura Reeves
What? Incube8 2012 presents four unique exhibitions and performances at Motorcade/Flashparade throughout November. The first of the four pieces is called The Students of Mr. D. Brooks. The piece sees Laura Reeves question the repeated cliché’s that occur during art school, and also the methods by which art was taught in the past.
Her inspiration behind this exhibition was the unexpected discovery of an aged collection of 35mm slides previously belonging to a retired lecturer, documenting the build-up to students’ final exhibitions during the 1980s. A telling little snippet of art history.
Next is Spoil Your Paper by Samuel Hasler, which features a new series of artworks targeting the abstract and political approaches applied to drawing. Hasler uses text and multiple printed images to demonstrate the composition and critical process of the artworks, often incorporating performance discussion with the audience to create an air of unpredictability.
Black Camp, the third exhibition by Julian Claxton, exposes a cryptic journey into the depths of the woods, through an unexplained excess of scummy debris and battered remnants of human occupancy, to the heart of an abandoned, desolate hideout. Spooky.
The final exhibition, Wet Beads On The Line by Johana Hartwig, reveals an array of mini visual sketches, representing ‘the humanity of the inanimate, the beauty of the incidental and a little fleshy wonder’. The latter particularly intrigues us, we want to know more. The sketches will be captured on film and flutter playfully between multiple screens, intermingling with curious objects and experiments, and placing a spotlight on the transitional moments in life that are often overlooked.
