Brief Encounters introduces artists that have never met or exhibited together before, in order to encourage dialogue between different artistic disciplines and to create access to the often private environment of preparing an exhibition.
Two artists have been given a pressurised schedule of a working week in which to prepare an exhibition that will be on show for a further week and, whether working in collaboration or reacting to one another, the installation process will be open to the public throughout.
Featuring Andy McKeown and Laura Wilson, the show presents practices which are grounded with an interactive element, taking objects (Wilson) and communicative media (McKeown) as primary points of departure. Their practices crossover via a playful engagement with the meanings generated from commonplace situations that involve the viewer.
For this exhibition the working week will be Tuesday to Friday 28th – 31st October in which there will be the opportunity to call in on the artists at work.
Andy McKeown produces interactive installations and projected light environments, using his own software and interface/interaction controls. Many of his recent projects and installations start as 'empty' systems and can evolve in unexpected directions. They rely on direct participation and interaction in order to create the visual dialogue. The installations are generally autonomous and designed for continuous unsupervised operation.
Laura Wilson makes sculpture, installations, drawings and performances. She aims to bring the everyday and discarded into visibility, exploring notions of absurdity, functionality, displacement, and communication; often capturing the humorous and poetic qualities of objects. Her concerns also include how the viewer interacts or experiences the work and how they can contribute to the works completion.
