Exhibition curated by Brigitte Parusel in collaboration with Patrick Morrissey and Hanz Hancock, Saturation Point

Showcasing Still Life by Casey Reas

Premier of Algorithmic Signs - Five pioneers of computer art in conversation a documentary by Francesca Franco

Expanding Systems explores current and historic developments in generative art made by analogue and digital artists. The exhibition showcases work by contemporary painters and sculptors whose practices are geometric, abstract and/or systems-based alongside artists who use computer code and algorithms to create work. The artists share several working principles regardless of their individual methodologies – employing rational processes of numerical systems, repetition or calculation to establish ‘rules’ that are executed either by the hand of the artist or the mechanics of the machine. The documentary Algorithmic Signs - Five pioneers of computer art in conversation by Francesca Franco, will form part of the exhibition, introducing Ernest Edmonds, Manfred Mohr, Vera Molnár, Frieder Nake, Roman Verostko.

The exhibition explores the recent interest in abstract or non-objective practices by contemporary artists. It has increasingly become part of the visual language of a new generation of painters and sculptors; unbound by historic movements like suprematism, constructivism, concrete or minimalism, they moreover negotiate their own relationship with reductive practice. The presence of computer technology, its characteristic aesthetics and analytical thinking, which are part of our recent every day experiences, may have had an influence on this development.

The analogue artworks in the exhibition correspond to themes, processes or visual qualities that are often found in the coded art. They have a sense of movement, experimenting with self-determined systems from which the work is manifest. Fiona Grady’s systematic wall drawings are like stills of animations; she uses geometric forms to map physical space and sequencing in architectural settings. Hanz Hancock and Patrick Morrissey visualise complex numeric systems in their paintings, drawings and sculptural installations. Michael Iveson works with the imperfections or glitches of systems by using mass-produced but vulnerable materials like bubble wrap to create prints and sculptures. Goia Mujalli’s immersive prints on canvas emerge from repeated movements and overlapping textures. Charley Peters uses layering and juxtaposition to explore the materiality of paint and the disrupted syntax of pictorial composition synonymous with our experiences of reading space, material and abstract form in the post-digital image world.

The digital artworks show the innovative use of creative coding. The artists in the exhibition represent a varied, dynamic community of programmers, including Casey Reas, artist and co-founder of Processing, the programming language mainly used in the exhibition. In his work Still Life a ‘painting’ evolves over time. Expanded Systems also includes new work from creative computing students at Goldsmiths, University of London, who will present prints from digital animations and object mapping. Designer/artist Patrik Huebner’s algorithmically-driven interactive piece is generated by the movements of the audience. In Tim Rodenbroeker’s abstract short-film geometric computer-generated animations are synced with sound; referencing early film experiments from the 1920s.

Expanding Systems allows us to see the creative potential in visual rules or algorithms across both analogue and digital processes. It also shows that using coding as a tool, opens new fields for artistic experimentation.

Still Life
Lisa Milroy and Jayne Parker

Still Life brings together a selection of work by Lisa Milroy and Jayne Parker in a collaborative exhibition at A.P.T Gallery, London that includes film, photography, sculpture and painting.

The exhibition charts the artists’ shared interest in material and imaginative transformation, the relation between absence and presence, and how memory resides in all its complexities within the human frame.  
 

Memory by Lisa Milroy
 Memory, 2017, oil on canvas, 184 x 233cm

The group of paintings selected for our exhibition Still Life features depictions of clothing and shoes, and mise-en-scenes from my recent ‘Mannequin’ series. The material form of the paintings includes oil and acrylic on canvas, object-paintings and an installation painting.

Shoes have been a recurrent motif in my practice since I began exploring ‘still life’ in the 1980s. Shoes, 2012 presents a single shoe repeated in rows against a grey background. This shoe is defined by two independent yet connected surfaces: the hard black shiny exterior and the soft blue-grey interior. The bright interior spaces of the shoe carve out hollows within the dark surface of the painting, turning the empty shoes into vessels full of light. This imagery keys the emotional dynamic of presence and absence and the physical dynamic of inside and outside, which reverberates throughout all my paintings in the exhibition, and chimes with aspects of Jayne’s work. A number of my paintings feature a female personage suspended in a reciprocation between body and mind, while other works focus on the passing of time - both predominant themes in my practice.

Lisa Milroy

Shattered Violin by Jayne Parker
Shattered Violin, 2016, photogram, 51cm x 61cm

The magnolia tree stands at the centre of my work in this exhibition. I first filmed the flowering magnolia tree, lit at night, in 2002 - this footage is included in my film The Oblique completed this year.The music, Blues in B-flat by Volker Heyn, performed by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze, provides the framework for The Oblique. The title comes from an instruction in the score, ‘oblique down stroke’, a call to the cellist to use an oblique bow. In the film branches of magnolia extend into the empty cavity of the cello, the space where sound resonates. The exploration of film’s relation to music and the search for a ‘music equivalent’ preoccupy me.

The photograms are of magnolia petals and flower buds. I think of them as an inventory. The analogue photographs use magnolia petals in place of a negative. The photograms and photographs, along with a small pile of magnolia braches shot through with mother of pearl, a series of simple stone carvings of bud shapes using soft limestone and alabaster, and objects constructed from instruments parts and horse hair - the hair streams through holes in the instrument parts - are music equivalents. They extend the imagery of my film work out into the world, into physical space.

Jayne Parker

On Saturday, March 10, there was performance by cellist Anton Lukoszevieze and a reading by poet Sharon Morris.

Lisa Milroy and Jayne Parker would like to thank Mali Morris for her support throughout the exhibition, and Lewis Biggs for his curatorial contribution.

[city]Frequency
a project by Maike Zimmermann

22 March  – 1 April 2018

Private View 22 March 2018 from 6.30 – 8.30pm
with an introduction by Sarah Turner

Artist Maike Zimmermann's latest project [city]Frequency, a multichannel audio visual installation, is a poetic, psychogeographic engagement with urban spaces.

Based on the artist’s personal travels and experiences in New York, [city]Frequency develops into an abstract narrative with an observational, anthropological  perspective. Viewers experience overlapping narratives of the artist's city explorations revealed by audio textures such as layers of field recordings, spoken word as diary entries and excerpts of interviews that engage in a dialogue with the visuals. The visual content becomes a multi-layered and elliptical montage slowly revealing meaningful hints of individual pasts marking a 'trace', a 'punctum' in time and so gradually unfolding a meaning, a story.
The interviews with New York residents talking about their most significant place in the city (at times touching on issues of gentrification/environmental pollution) include a tattoo artist growing up on the Bowery in the 70's, a nun living in the West Village during the AIDS epidemic and an activist living on Gowanus canal. In juxtaposition to their stories, the footage includes views of how the spaces appear today.

[city]Frequency examines our emotional response to cities as places of transition and how we experience them through memories. Every city has a different feel and triggers certain emotions linked to memories and experiences only inherent in that particular space and time. In an age of fast and aggressive change it is important to keep up a discourse about spaces and their authenticity (history) through our memories. There exists a ‘feel’, an emotional level for a space to stay alive so we can remember: Where am I? Why am I here? What means the place for me? To make oneself aware of one ‘s own experience. “Frequency” means an unconscious, human, emotional disposition in relation to the city: as a longing/nostalgia. New York (still) embodies this as the 'City of Dreams' for many people.

A photographic triptych selected from the artist's urban haiku series will also be on display providing an integral contextual part of the exhibition experience. http://maike-z.com/haiku-series

[city]Frequency seeks to engage a diverse audience through a workshop on Sound and Site (led by sound artist Iris Garrelfs) and an Urban Walks programme (curated by Carmen Billows) in London (Hackney Wick/Wapping/Aldgate area). Please scroll down for further information:

Events in conjunction with the exhibition:

Urban Walks curated by Carmen Billows
23 March, 2pm– Andreas Lang: Notes from the Temporary City (Hackney Wick)
24 March, 11am – Stephen Watts: From Earth to Air: A Walk from Wapping to Aldgate East

Workshop on Sound and Site led by  Iris Garrelfs
25 March, 10am – 4pm at A.P.T Gallery

Artist Talk with Maike Zimmermann
31 March, 1 – 2pm at A.P.T Gallery

Urban Walks: A Walk to the Edge of the City
Cities like London or New York are similar to living organisms: Complex and subject to never-ending, rapid changes. Walking as an artistic research attempts to make sense of our position in the city and to find alternative ways of discussing space and environment.

How do we navigate urban space? What is the essence of a city, how do urban circulatory and structural systems operate? Finally, what are the current issues at stake with large-scale regeneration projects that add to a general feeling of unease?

In a two-day series of guided walks, led by urban researcher and architect Andreas Lang and poet Stephen Watts, London as an example of a mega-city becomes the object of research. Walking London areas - Hackney Wick and Wapping/ Whitechapel - that are currently severely effected by regeneration processes, will allow us to map and transcribe the changes that those areas are currently undergoing.

Walk 1: Notes from the Temporary City
Friday, 23rd March, 2 - 5pm

"Notes from the Temporary City" takes you on a tour of a neighbourhood on the cusp of change. It will take you from Queens Yard, Hub 67, to Grow Hackney, Swan Wharf, Save Hackney Wick, Stour Space and back to the German Deli. It provides a complex picture of the dynamics reshaping contemporary London, from the pressure of market forces to new structures of governance and the ingenuity of its residents.” (Isaac Marrero-Guillamón)

Walk 2: From Earth to Air: A Walk from Wapping to Aldgate East'
Saturday, 24th March, 11am  - 2pm

The walk will begin at the shoreline in Wapping, looking out towards Canary Wharf/Isle of Dogs and over-viewing development along that part of the Thames over the past 40 years. We will then progress slowly via Shadwell & the Cable Street Mural towards Aldgate East, where commercial, global development is both worryingly intense and mesmerising. Throughout the walk, which will intentionally pass by trees and close to public housing, we will try to compare the very local with the 'global', focusing on the effects of the latter on social histories and architectures. The walk will end at the rapidly changing Aldgate East & Toynbee Hall, currently a building site of ongoing development impinging the lives and work of artists and communities based there: after which we may adjourn to a cafe or bar for further talk. 

Workshop on Sound and Site (led by  Iris Garrelfs)
Sunday, 25 March, 10am – 4pm at APT

This one-day workshop is led by Iris Garrelfs and will provide you with an introducton to exploring site specificity through sound, as a sense, a socially engaged method for exploring sites and communities, and an artistic medium. We will prioritise our ears through exercises and a sound walk, and explore how we can collect, curate and communicate site. Collecting site may include recording environmental sound, interviews, or sounding architecture; curating site looks at creating a unified work from the material; and communicating site explores strategies to employ in site-specific performance or installation. This workshop will focus on the aspect of collecting site, firstly by familiarising ourselves through listening, then recording interviews, environmental sound, collecting objects and other materials. We will briefly look at curating and communicating site.

Carmen Billows is a curator, currently based in Berlin, specialising in the moving image. She has an academic background in Cultural and Curatorial Studies from Universität Bremen, Germany and the Royal College of Art, London, UK. As an independent curator she has curated various exhibitions and film screenings internationally in London, Berlin, Paris and Bangalore. Her film screenings and exhibitions are mostly concerned with urbanism and notions of space in artists' moving image, film performance and site-specific video installation, but also with the transition of different film forms from the cinematic to the art gallery context. www.carmenbillows.com

Iris Garrelfs is a site-responsive sound artist active across performance, installation and fixed media. Through listening she explores relationships with the world; her understanding of place includes people who, through their ideas or presence, participate in creating it. Her work establishes experiences, environments for listening and has featured in major institutions worldwide, for instance the Onassis Centre Athens; Transmedia Borders Mexico, International Computer Music Conference New York; GSK Contemporary - Royal Academy Of Arts; Rencontres Internationales; Tate Britain; National Gallery.  She is the commissioning editor of the open-access journal Reflections on Process in Sound and lectures in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London. .www.irisgarrelfs.com/

Urban researcher and architect Andreas Lang has taught Architecture at numerous institutions including the Architectural Association, the Royal Collage of Art, and Umeå School of Architecture, Sweden. He is currently head of M ARCH Architecture and teaches within the MA Architecture: Cities and Innovation. He is co-founder of public works (2004), a non-profit critical design practice that occupies the terrain between art, architecture and research. Lang's work has been exhibited widely in architectural exhibitions and the art context such as the prestigious Venice Biennale (2012), Serpentine Gallery (2004), Folkestone Triennial (2008), the British Art Show (2005/06) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (2016). He was included in the Guardian’s portrait of key players in British Architecture (2012).

Stephen Watts is a poet, editor and translator. He has lived in Shadwell in East London for the past 40 years, but is also very familiar with remote, non-urban landscapes and his writings reflect intimately the interfaces between landscape, memory and language. Recent books include 'Ancient Sunlight' (2014), 'Republic Of Dogs/Republic Of Birds' (2016), recent co-translations are of the Iraqi poet Adnan al-Sayegh and the Syrian poet Golan Haji. An interview with Watts by Pippa Marland and a long poem, both on the Little Toller website, are very pertinent to the proposed walk. Watts was a friend of Max Sebald and is writing a study of the latter's fictions.

Notionally sculpture is an ever shifting conflation of form, volume, space, light, image, context – elements marshalled to give shape to an idea, a resolution of a particular line of enquiry.

But what does it mean to give agency to material itself, to follow the material and to act with the materials? Both intuitively and counter-intuitively, to follow the material means to enter a true maze of potential meanings, where one encounters terms as matter, materiality, ‘stuff’, substance or medium, and where the properties of materials come to the fore, both physically and symbolically.

This show focuses on the disparate tension between materials and explores ‘material as object’ – through re-appropriation, counter-intuitive physics and a questioning of conventional status – and suggests that restless experimentation, and evasion of resolution, is at least as compelling as the statement of a ‘finished’ object.

New Model Army: Invisible Labour

In this exhibition of new works, Linda Aloysius investigates the issue of invisible labour,
bringing visibility to the effects of different forms of hidden and
unrecognised work carried out by women.

Ryder Project Studio Residency exhibition

18 to 22 April 2018
Exhibition open daily from 12noon to 5pm


Linda Aloysius    Fresh (2017)           
(Frontal and Reverse Views)      
Mixed Media  Approximate Dimensions h: 188 w:58 d:45cm

In this exhibition of new works*, Linda Aloysius investigates the issue of invisible labour, bringing visibility to its effects on women.

The term invisible labour refers generally to women's obscured and / or under-valued emotional, psychological and physical work and the effects of this on their embodied subjectivities.

Much of the labour that women do is inside and invisible in both a literal and less obvious sense. Women work within the home and 'behind closed doors', often in unpaid and under-valued service to the domestic environments they are structurally and emotionally connected to. Women also work internally in the sense of responding emotionally and psychologically to provide support and care to others, often experiencing the additional burden of guilt or shame if they refuse caring roles.

For working mothers, including working mother artists, invisible labour can also involve the complex juggling and co-ordination of often seemingly irreconcilable childcare needs with the demands of employment structured along patriarchal lines. Whilst single mothers worldwide continue to labour under the effects of their political pathologisation, women generally work to overcome class, gender and racial divides, all the while bearing the burden of objectification, including through the screen and screen related experiences.

The inequalities caused to women by the effects of invisible labour are often extreme; the psychological work and practical hardships involved in coping with and overcoming experiences of marginalisation mean that the future of women's creativity remains uncertain and precarious.

Invisible labour and its effects on women have been historically under-represented in the art world.

Through her new works, Aloysius asks: What new values are activated when the effects of women's invisible labour are made visible?

-----

Linda Aloysius completed her doctoral research at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2017.

Her practice-based research draws from her life-long, intimate connection with hands-on making and her personal experiences as a single mother. Originally emerging from a working-class background, Aloysius has defied longstanding, structural inequalities to combine paid employment, motherhood and artistic practice, all the while navigating the fine art higher education landscape and its various politics and possibilities.

* The works in the current exhibition develop Aloysius' ongoing series New Model Army and are generated through her year-long residency in The Ryder Project Space at A.P.T. The New Model Army is a working one, aiming to investigate and combat the historical inequalities experienced by women whilst celebrating women's strength in overcoming adversity.

"Being around predominantly visual artists has informed my practice greatly during this year, visual art influencing sound art, a slow osmosis through the walls of APT. This I find interesting, sound travels but isn’t visual art supposed to stay put? Thanks for opportunity, community & education".

Emergent behaviour is not dependent on its individual parts, but on their relationships to one another. It cannot be predicted by examination of a system's individual parts. It can only be predicted, managed, or controlled by understanding the parts and their relationships.

“I feel really fortunate to have been part of A.P.T’s graduate programme over the past year. My practice has had the chance to develop a lot in this time, being influenced by the other artists and exhibitions here at A.P.T. I found opportunities like curating the member’s show really rewarding, particularly as it taught me a lot about the curatorial process. I am very grateful to all the support I have had from A.P.T and all its artists.”

2021 concerts is an innovative new London-based concert series, presenting rarely performed works of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries alongside their better-known counterparts. The series has a particular focus on collaboration between the human voice and other instruments, sometimes in unorthodox combinations.

Each concert is based around a concept, a chain of musical influence or an unusual parallel between works. The aim is to offer audiences the opportunity to see contemporary music in a new light.

Presented by students and recent graduates, 2021 concerts is a chance to meet the faces of tomorrow's contemporary music scene. Our ethos is enthusiasm - both in the performers, and our audiences.

From 4th to 6th May 2018 the series will be in residence at A.P.T Gallery, with a festival celebrating cross-arts collaboration around the theme of Perception.

The weekend begins with a concert of experimental works on Friday evening; Saturday offers nine hours of performances ranging from live illustration, dance and song, to innovative videography and everything in between; finally on Sunday there will be a concert of music and dance created by rising stars of the contemporary performance scene.

Free entry all weekend.
