The FdA and Ba (Hons) in Art & Design students are delighted to be working again with the Bentalls Store in Kingston for the 2015 Pop-Up shop Hi_Viz.
During the weekend of 3 & 4 October, students will be selling a fantastic range of prints, drawings, jewellery and paintings. All work is hand-crafted, unique – some highly finished, others experimental and thought provoking.
What happens to art once it starts to address sound, image and other forms of media? What affect does this have on the audience? How does one feel when one experiences physical, temporal, visceral effects and so forth?
These questions might be at odds with the philosophical study of ‘Object-oriented ontology’, which “puts things at the center of being” and not the human experience as such. Darja is interested in the relationship between the two: ‘object’ and ‘subject’. Her present practice mainly features custom software and/or prepared electronic equipment that together create a drawing machine of some kind. The spectators are exposed to real time audio-visual processes, but also invited to emancipate themselves from ‘passive’ spectatorship, suggesting a more engaging form of contemporary art, as their ‘active’ role in influencing the artistic outcome is acknowledged. It is not implied that they are ‘active’ to the extent they become ‘actors’, but to the extent they become part of a more ‘democratic’ meeting between the artist and viewer, taking on a higher level of participation. The correlation between technology and the artist is continually self-evolving and shares a symbiotic relationship whereby the technology is an extension of the artist.
Ba(Hons) Art & Design graduate
Piercing the Veil September 2015 – February 2016 | Featuring Lucy Cox, who completed the FdA in Art & Design programme in 2013, and then successfully graduated from the UAL Wimbledon Ba (Hons) Painting course in 2015.
From established artists to new graduates, Piercing the Veil examines the use of obscuration in contemporary art to induce a curiosity about, or longing to get nearer to, that which is concealed.
The show, curated by Jon Sharples, Co-Chair of the Simmons & Simmons Art Network, will include works by artists in our collection – Hurvin Anderson, Alex Gough, Gary Hume, Danny Rolph and Joel Wyllie, as well as works by James William Collins, Lucy Cox, Dangerous Minds, Dan Haycock, Jenny Holzer, Justin Mortimer, Azadeh Nia, Eddie Peake, Natasha Peel, Tom Phillips, Sean Rohr, Andrew Salgado, Dario Srbic, Sophia Starling, Eleanor Watson and Christopher Wool.

The Ba / FdA in Art & Design encourages a culture of trans-disciplinary research between artists, designers and makers in which students can ask new and engaging questions about their practice. As such the course is externally focussed, student-centred and with a strong emphasis on professional practice skills development. The course builds on the strength of the research of the teaching team who are practising artists, designers and makers committed to practice-led teaching.
