Andrew at ExtraBones emails to tell me of their next project at the Utrophia Space 120 Deptford High Street, SE8 4NS (close to Deptford Station).
Progress In Work is a series of intensive mini-residency/open studio shows curated by Extra Bones. The public is invited to join in or just come and observe / meet the artists at work in the space at any point during the three day project.
The Project runs March 2nd - March 4th; Friday 12:00-6:00 - Saturday 12:00-6:00 & late, 7:00 - 10:00 - Sunday 12:00-4:00
The show will take the shape of a sound and vision den / installation, evolving organically throughout the three days, using materials, inspiration, and help, from exhibition visitors, and the high street. The creative process will be exposed at every stage, and left open to the effects of the setting it has been placed in.
Friday will be a material gathering day, the construction will be planned, sound will be recorded, and drawings will be made.
Saturday will see the drawings, now processed into screens, printed onto various surfaces, the recorded sounds will be effected and manipulated, and the den take it's full form. There will also be a late opening that evening until 10pm.
On Sunday further conclusions and additions will be made and the project will draw to a close.
Three carefully chosen artists will be working on Progress In Work #2, Extra Bones is proud to present;
Jack Brown, who will be designing and constructing the frame for the den. Bernie Kerr, who will be composing a sound piece for the space, which will be played on various speakers. Hugh Barrell, who will be drawing and screen printing in the space, onto materials which will be used for the den itself.
