Description

BALTIC 39 | FIGURE THREE is an opportunity for artists to test works and ideas, or to develop works in progress within a public context. The 10 exhibitions are to be held in the project space at BALTIC 39 from Wednesday 20 January – Sunday 21 February 2016.

Week Five: Wednesday 17 – Sunday 21 February 2016

Luke McCreadie: ...together with the obligation to express.
McCreadie uses sculpture, film, performance and music as methods of making, to produce a single body of work, each part building upon the last. This multifarious approach allows for a sense of confusion or blurring of boundaries between words and images, objects, films and performers. For FIGURE THREE he will use ‘the face’ as a system within which to categorize moving images and text, McCreadie will develop and alter this new work throughout the exhibition.

Mohammad Namazi: Around Hospitality
The temporal tensions between transience and permanency, or kinesis and stasis, have been a constant area of research for Namazi, exploring the polarity of subjects such as the rights of individuals, consumerism and the political exchange of power and hospitality. During this five-day exhibition Namazi will exhibit new installations using video, prints, sculpture, sound and kineticism. In addition, by turning part of the exhibition space into an artist studio, he will construct and develop a variety of new installations and sculptural structures throughout the show.
