As part of Siobhan Davies Studios regular programme of visual art exhibitions, this month we present Notes for a future work, a new show by 60|40 an independent artists collective, founded by Clare Twomey, David Clarke and Tracey Rowledge. The exhibition will be displayed throughout the building with each of the artists responding to the space in a unique way.
Inspired by the creative movement that takes place in the dance studios, the artists explore how movement can be held and communicated through objects using their individual defined disciplines within the applied arts: ceramics, silversmithing and bookbinding. Each work on the outer boundaries of their discipline and in this exhibition they aim to expand the environment for experimental applied arts and create the first of what will be an annual exhibition, the Starting Point Series.
About the Artists
Clare Twomey explores body movement and awareness of energy and action in craft making through a series of photographs located throughout the building.
Clare is a British artist who works with clay in large-scale installations, sculpture and site-specific works. Over the past 10 years she has exhibited at the Tate, Victoria & Albert Museum, Crafts Council, Museum of Modern Art Kyoto-Japan. www.claretwomey.com
David Clarke plays with notions of stillness and resting, by creating forms from found objects which will be reliant on the building for support.
David trained in Silversmithing and Metalwork at Camberwell College of Art and the Royal College of Art. David exhibits his work internationally and is represented in many collections including, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, The Goldsmiths Company, London; and the Crafts Council Collection.
Tracey Rowledge looks at movement through the soft reflections made by people as they move past a large graphite drawing on a gesso ground. She will film the moving reflections and project this ‘dance’ elsewhere in the building.
Tracey studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths' College and Fine Bookbinding and Conservation at Guildford College of Further and Higher Education (1993-1995). Her work is held in private and public collections including The British Library, The National Library of Scotland and The National Art Library (V&A). www.traceyrowledge.co.uk
