Phoenix Art Space Invitation
About the Event
A project by Phoenix Art Space temporary resident Nina Wakeford, in collaboration with Claire Makhlouf Carter and Joseph Noonan-Ganley. Claire and Joseph have been invited to create or re-invent works for the Project Space, building on their existing practices. The resulting artworks will then be animated by a text by Nina, and will be launched from Friday 26th (Private View 6-8pm) to Sunday 28th August (11-5pm).
Claire Makhlouf Carter’s work often begins with a script which manifests the politics of labour. She is exploring the capacities of a brand new erasable printer, brought into the Project Space, and starts with a previous work featuring an artist talk and a ‘bitter lucky dip’. The e-STUDIO5008LP is becoming a protagonist in an investigation of how sights and sounds of labour might be made present.
Joseph Noonan-Ganley is starting with a current interest in jock straps and cliches of homosexual identification, the making of an expressive font, and sections of a book on rugby players making beds together as a way of surviving a plane crash in the Andes. As well as projecting a moving image work, he is currently cutting up rugby shirts into a single strip, so that a viewer might find a collar here, an armpit there…
