Beaconsfield: Richard Hards - One eye is enough || Material Conjectures - Kwartz Kapital Konstruction Kollider - 15 Oct 2014 to 17 Dec 2014
Richard Hards, One eye is enough, work in progress, 2014
One eye is enough
15 October - 6 December 2014
Preview: Wednesday 15 October, 6-8.30pm
Richard Hards recently graduated from the Royal College of Art in Sculpture (MA) and is now invited to make an intervention in Beaconsfield's Upper Space Gallery.
Hards' previous works are characterised by their direct and often combative response to found site or subject. Architectural intervention or excavation has more recently been augmented by a number of video works, two of which are shown as part of the FlatScreen programme.
One eye is enough reflects Beaconsfield's commissioning commitment to emergent artists.
Kwartz Kapital Konstruction Kollider
with Sinead Bligh, Mikko Canini and Thomas Yeomans
29 October - 6 December 2014
Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-5pmPreview: Wednesday 29 October, 6-8.30pm
Curators' tour: Friday 31 October at 6.30pm
Symposium: Friday 28 November at 6.30pm. Booking essential.
Artist Dale Holmes and curator Kirsten Cooke return to extend the generative questions lying at the heart of their ongoing project Material Conjectures with a collision of artworks by Sinead Bligh, Mikko Cannini and Thomas Yeomans staged upon an architectonic structure built in Beaconsfield’s Arch.
The co-authored Material Conjectures is a project in staging productive frictions through which contested authorial positions – artist/curator – are at stake. In a symposium on 28 November, designed to bring contemporary curatorial debates into a public arena, Cooke and Holmes will converse with Bridget Crone, Pil and Galia Kollectiv and Matthew Poole in the context of the artist-led entity Beaconsfield.
