FUNDING NEWS

  • by

Very excited to be working on this:

“Grants to Arts have funded artist Sarah Mole to research and develop a geo-located audio walk on the University of Hull’s Cottingham Road campus accompanied by a creatively generated soundscape that incorporates audio recordings (captured from participants) and sound design.  This project supports the development of her work in socially engaged practice and emotional geography.

The nature of the geo-location application triggers audio at specific, pre-determined GPS co-ordinates on the walk.  Access to the project for an audience is based around the use of audience’s own mobile devices, pre-installed with the necessary app and audio files, and head/ear phones.  This pilot will take place in Spring.”

URBAN PICNIC

As lockdown measures eased in July, a raggle-taggle band of artists headed down in small groups to Hull’s former fish dock with paint, brushes, pencils, pens, sketchbooks and paper for an urban picnic and afternoon of art in the shadow of the Lord Line building, wrote Dave Windass in The Critical Fish.

The Critical Fish is an artist led project which promotes critical but accessible writing about art and visual culture.

WHAT IS? AT HEADS UP

  • by

What is Earth? For the fluid group of artists that make up What Is? Collective it is telling tales to a willing crowd and vegetables; it is listening to troughs of topsoil and worms. Worms underground, worms on walls, and hedgehogs on walls hibernating. It is sparkly blue, poetry performance and circular paintings – like cutaways of exotic silvery planets on large canvases. More paintings, with surrealist illustrations, paintings with feathers, even a bird’s nest.
