Two is one, one is none

(2009) Two is one, one is none

Record type: Art Design Item


August 2009
For Back Lane West¹s inaugural show, Two is One, One is None, three artists have each chosen an artist to join forces with to produce new work in a fast and immediate manner. Patrick Lowry, Steven Paige and Alison Sharkey have chosen to work with Ben Rowe, Clare Thornton and Alex Schady respectively. The work being produced is a spontaneous and immediate reaction to the act of partnering and negotiation. Without much preamble the focus has been on making work, without any over arching theme or curatorial line. What is a concern are the practicalities of making work, having somewhere to show it and the relations that can make this happen. Part experiment and part challenge the results are as much a dialogue between the participants as pieces of work.

Back Lane West, is a newly initiated space/place/repository, whose vision is to host and present national and international artists' works and projects in Cornwall, UK, and reverse this relationship to work nationally and internationally. Its mission is to enable artists to present and exhibit their work and projects to their peers and chosen audience. The potential uses of the existing project space are not limited and a variety of outcomes and events are planned for the foreseeable future, including invited artists, residency programmes, artists¹ talks and exchanges. Back Lane West is currently self-funded, being flexible in how it programmes and presents projects. In the first show the three founding members were working with artists based in Bristol and London to collaborate and create work.

The results of this endeavour was exhibited in the project space Sat 29 and Sunday 30 August 2009.
There was an artist discussion chaired by Megan Wakefield on Sunday 30th.
