News From Nowhere - November 2010

16 November 2010

We are extremely pleased to announce the forthcoming opening of Martin Erik Andersen 'matter and mind - slipping through our fingers' from December 16th to February 6th. This is the award winning Danish artist's first solo show in the UK.

This exhibition is a co-operative action for Isis with Sprovieri in London, who will host the installation. You can find out more details and read the press release here. As always, everyone is welcome to attend the preview on December 15th.

Jamie Reid's ambitious and rewarding Eightfold Year online project is now up and running. This exploration of the Druidic lunar calendar offers a new painting for each day of the year, with moon phases, seasonal plant information, festivals and so forth. This project promises to grow in reach and content as the year turns through the seasons and is co-managed by Isis.


We would also like to draw your attention to a special live performance by Simon Fisher Turner of Derek Jarman's Blue at the Duke of York's in Brighton on Wednesday 1st December - World AIDS Day. 'The viewer is immersed in a field of blue light, pure cobalt blue, to fully focus on the soundtrack as Jarman free associates around the artistic, philosophical and metaphysical meanings of blue - sky, water, flowers, a boy named Blue, sadness, the infinite - connecting them to his life and body of work. As the blueness of the screen seems to pulse, the evocative sound collage from longtime musical collaborator Simon Fisher Turner provides the film’s narrative, its pictures and its emotional core.'

Simon Fisher Turner and Alyson Shotz have also recently collaborated on a beautiful installation at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Houston, Texas.
