STUART ROBINSON : PROMONTORY
Mar 1 - Apr 5, 2017
Private view Wed Mar 1 5pm - 7pm
Utilising ideas and themes developed through his recent practice such as signage, props, scale and modelmaking, Stuart will create sculptural installations featuring frameworks, structures and illuminated elements exploring our experience of the everyday and how the world is presented to us. The work will explore the shapes, colour and materials familiar from our daily encounters of media, signs and surroundings as well as specific inspirations from Plymouth itself.
Mar 15, 2017 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Sharing similar focus within Stuart Robinson’s work, Patrick Lowry’s installations examines our relationship with objects and places. His work stimulates the viewer to consider the subject that is being represented, and how this subject and/or its relationship to both its physical and wider social environment might be interpreted. Patrick Lowry (www.axisweb.org/p/patricklowry) is also a founding director of Back Lane West (www.backlanewest.org) an artist led project and residency space based in Redruth in Cornwall.

Rachel Dobbs (rachel.we-are-low-profile.com) is an artist, educator and occasional writer of critical texts (based in Plymouth, UK). In 2016, her essay "On Closer Inspection: the work of Stuart Robinson", reflecting her on-going interest in the recuperation of things that are out-moded, over-used or over-looked, served as the foreword to Robinson's publication "Ham Fisted Half Cocked". Join us in the discussion of Stuart's work and practice, with opportunities for Q&A from the audience.
NOAM TORAN : THE JUNGLE
Apr 26 - May 31, 2017
Private view Wed Apr 26 6pm - 7:30pm
The Jungle is the first of a series of immersive works by artist Noam Toran which draw from the traditions of political theatre from the first half of the 20th century.
From the Soviet Proletkult, to the agitprops of pre-war Europe, through to the socialist, anarchist, and union-run troupes in the Americas and European colonies, the project reveals the dynamic ways in which working class theatre, through its coalescing of fictional and factual material, has informed and infected radical consciousness.
