Part of the 'Rearranging sculpture' series: The cavities and negative spaces within the structures reveal unique abstract compositions as the viewer moves about the piece. These works act as “chords” and the viewers movement around the object as the “rhythm” in which the art work is perceived.
These works make connections between music and visual art exploring the temporality of rhythm, form, objects, and investigating the artwork and the viewer’s relationship to the exhibition space.
Platform Graduate Exhibition
This year Turner Contemporary presents the sixth edition of Platform, the annual region-wide project created to support new graduate talent across the south east of England. This year’s exhibition includes seven artists graduating from Fine Art courses at three Kent universities:
Canterbury Christ Church University (Edward Byard, Stephen Foy-Philp), The University of Kent (Luiza Jordan and Tayler Goatier) and University for the Creative Arts Canterbury (Adina Breden-Thorpe, Kieran Rook, Janine Weger).
The Platform Graduate award is an initiative to support emerging graduate artistic talent to further their practice following graduation. Established in 2012, the award includes a £2,500 bursary and mentoring from artist Jonathan Parsons and is awarded to an outstanding graduate from one of sixteen participating regional higher education partners. The initiative is led by CVAN South East (Contemporary Visual Arts Network South East) and is a partnership between five galleries: Aspex in Portsmouth, De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, Modern Art Oxford and Turner Contemporary.
