Here as promised (if a bit later than expected…) are images from the rest of 2Day Gallery. It was so great to work with all these artists and see what they would do with their time.
Beth Savage performed ‘Captivity’ May 14 and 15. The text presented on the first day was relating to the story of Icarus. Beth fashioned a newspaper wing on the second day while held captive in the Gallery.
Jonathan Brodsky’s ‘Options’ transformed the gallery into on interactive game on May 16 and 17. This was fun and very open to interpretation.
Gayle Miekle presented 04/14, one in a series of 14 digital ‘prints’, created whilst in residency in Bergen, Norway. You can view the entire series at sevenhoursthirty.co.uk.
Justin Hopper and Lucy Greeves shared ‘The High Wood (Part 1)’ an audio piece exploring the landscapes of the First World War’s Western Front using newly written and archival texts.
Claire Briegel and Tara Chaloner were resident artists on May 22 and 23. Their ‘For Want of an Information Place’ gave the Bureau of Exchange a place in the DJCAD Degree Show from which to consider the (essential?) conditions of leisure, appreciation and familiarity in the wider Dundee city context.
The last weekend was quite emotional for all of us preparing to Graduate. NOW NOW was formed by a group of students that graduated from DOJ in 2008. 5 years later and it was time for a reunion, and a party (of course). Don’t forget – there IS life after art school.
What a blast! Thanks to all of the artists that put work (and play) into 2Day Gallery. I am working on a publication about 2Day now – stay tuned for more details. Also a big thank you to all who came to see the many fabulous degree show exhibitions this year.
