N55- WALKING HOUSE


WALKING HOUSE is a result of a specific project initiated by Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridgeshire. N55 was asked by Wysing Arts Centre to collaborate with a group of travellers in the area around Cambridge, where there has traditionally been a large population of travelers living in a symbiotic relationship with the settlers, making a living as seasonal workers on the farms.

ontology: a new work by Cheryl Field

“There was much of the beautiful, much of the wanton, much of the bizarre, something of the terrible, and not a little of that which might have excited disgust”


from “The Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe.



It is this friction between the poetics of the abject and the direct visceral responses of our physiology that informs this new work by Cheryl Field. Exploring material properties that evoke the bodily to provide an encounter between the writhing forms and their audience, she invites us to question the potential for manipulation in the complex territory between object and viewer. Laden with connotations of the corporeal, the installation attempts to draw us into our own physical and psychological apparatus, mapping the disparities highlighted by the work between disgust and attraction, what is apparent and the intricate, veiled processes that lead us to form our response to what is presented.

Preview: Saturday 18th October 7 - 9pm

Pedal Power - a commission for Stavanger 2008






I invite you all to follow my adventures in Stavanger, Norway. From 22nd-30th August, 3 pedal generators will be located around the city in various sites including schools, gyms, shopping centres and on the street. At the end of each day the energy stored in batteries will be harvested to power a lighting system for a pedestrian walkway beneath the city road bridge.
For more up to date information please see www.justincarter.info or www.justincarter.info/blog
See you all in September...best wishes, Justin

Now the artist brings the outside inside



Jack's thoughts on Kenny's show at Tramway

Sculpture shock

DURING KENNY Hunter's three month residency at New York art centre Location One in 2005, he explored the city, taking in the 'weird quality of light' caused by the lack of direct sun penetrating the concrete jungle. He observed the vast deposits of waste that would emerge on a daily basis from the base of towering skyscrapers. He also read a book on modernism by Marshall Berman called All That Is Solid Melts Into Air. The title, a line from the Communist Manifesto, could easily be a slogan for almost all this Musselburgh-born artist's work.

Kenny Hunter Interview: Graft and craft:

EVERY MORNING, KENNY HUNTER gets on his bike and cycles to his studio in Anniesland along the tow path of the Forth & Clyde Canal. It's an in-between place, part post-industrial wasteland, part bucolic riverside, home to swans and kingfishers, abandoned shopping trolleys and underage drinkers.

Students: Customers or learners?

Should university students be seen as learners or customers?

Edinburgh art students 'shame' tutors

Students at Edinburgh College of Art have humiliated staff by staging a rival degree show, saying their tutors were disorganised and failed to turn up for lectures.

The group, from the prestigious college’s School of Drawing and Painting, organised a show separate from the traditional exhibition of final year students’ work as a way of voicing their frustration at what they say was staff neglect.
