London Art Fair 2009 - Art Projects

From the earliest kinds of hunting shelter, through ad hoc artisanal building, supporting structures for nature and the conflux of nature and architecture interpreted through computer imagery, four artists join together to interpret ideas about the evolution of architecture and shelter.

London Art Fair 2008 - Art projects stand P10 - London

Seven Seven presented eight artists whose work connects with environmental issues. They have in common empathy with nature and its manifestations in an urban context . Without hectoring they subliminally allude to our anxieties about our relationship with our planet.

Artvaults - 'a space' - Southampton

Following on from ‘Fold Up the Sky’ in Rome Alan Bond, May Cornet, and Dawn Shorten have been chosen as lead artists in the ‘Artvaults’ project that takes place in Southampton this summer. Below the post war redevelopment that characterises Southampton’s city centre lays a labyrinth of over 100 underground vaults dating back to the twelfth century. For the second year seven of these spaces are being opened every weekend as contemporary art spaces. Last year the project, organised by ‘a’ space, attracted 15,000 visitors.

In the Castle vault Dawn Shorten is showing ‘Fly me to The Moon’, a spectacular reconstruction of a rocket launch. Alan Bond has constructed planetarium consisting of a geodesic dome that sits on a circle of doors scavenged from skips. Light penetrates through hundreds of holes drilled in the dome. May Cornet shows in 94. High street. An installation reminiscent of a laboratory consists of illuminated seed boxes suggesting a process of cloning. However Cornet sees each of the seedlings having the potential to grow into something unique. Delicate, clinical and beguiling, the work suggests a scientific intervention into the natural processes of creation and germination.

The exhibition continues until October 9th. and the vaults are open from 12-4 every Saturday and Sunday. For directions contact ‘a’ space tel; 02380 338778. Maps to guide you around can be obtained from Southampton Tourist Information sites, the vaults themselves and from 'a' space.
