IF A PAIR IS TWO, WHAT IS THREE?

An exhibition in two parts which presents the outcomes of different collaborations initiated by artists based at Primary in Nottingham.
Closing event with discussion and performance: Sunday 28 February, 14:00-16:00 (refreshments provided)
Join us for the final opportunity to see the exhibitions, alongside a discussion with the artists involved and a spoken word performance ‘set to play mode’ by Rob Flint and guests.
Razzle: All that Jazz
Craig Fisher, Louisa Chambers & Rob Flint
This collaborative exhibition takes as its starting point ‘Dazzle Camouflage’, with the three artists each employing pattern as a form of pictorial disruption, interruption and spatial collapse. Each artist has worked site-specifically by making work directly on the gallery walls. Over the duration of the exhibition they have developed work by responding to the space and each other; artworks butt up against each other, and are shown on top of each other making individual practices both indistinguishable and jarring. Works within the exhibition are concealed within the overall dazzle effect of the installation producing interesting juxtapositions and correlations.
One In the Middle
Frank Abbott, Rob Smith & SmithAbbott
Continuing a playful dialogue with video, photography and installation, the artists explore sites in the landscape between their studios in Newcastle, Nottingham and the Harley Gallery. The exhibition reflects on the processes of being somewhere, having an encounter and working at a distance. Different media are used to bring elements of the remote sites into a triangular relationship within the gallery, and out of this triangulation they conjure up a ‘third party’; a chance encounter with someone who becomes an artist in their own right for the duration of the exhibition.
