DegreeArt Presents: Artist In Residence : Unit 3 Projects : In All Directions


24Th March – 5th May 2013 Open 12 – 6 pm Daily DegreeArt 12a Vyner Street, Bethnal Green, London, E2 9DG

To mark their 10th Anniversary, DegreeArt have set up an ‘Artist Residency programme’ at their DegreeArt Gallery space ‘The Execution Room’. The residencies seek to turn the exhibition space into a catalyst for; discussion, exchange, development and action and FAD is proud to be their online media partner.

Their next residency is Unit 3 Projects :

10 diverse artists from Unit 3 Projects will work with, beside, around and against one another in DegreeArt’s ‘The Execution Room’ in order to engage themselves and you in an experimental and haphazard creative conversation. Taking ‘gesture’ as its central theme, In All Directions is a celebration of possibility, exchange and risk. Flavius Alagrius, John Appleton, Abigail Box, Henry Byrne, Pamela Carr, Jennifer Farmer, Silvia Krupinska, Hormazd Narielwalla, Samuel Overington and Luis Ignacio Rodriguez will use their DegreeArt residency to explore whether what happens in the margins and on the periphery can be just as bold and just as extraordinary.

In All Directions celebrates that there is no one way of working and that inspiration can come from the most unlikely source. The artists of Unit 3 Projects will either collaborate or collide; they might even achieve both. While the artists’ individual practices cover mediums such as painting, video installation, performative drawing and interactive audio, the work to be created during In All Directions has yet to be defined. Perhaps it defies definition.

In All Directions asks the artists to rise to the challenge of trusting each other, themselves and the work. Collaboration. Collision. In all directions.
