BALTIC 39 | FIGURE TWO, an open submission exhibition which allows artists working across all media to test works and ideas, or to develop works in progress within a public context. The exhibition will last for 5 weeks and will be made up of 10 projects by 18 artists, each lasting 5 days.

Week 5: Wednesday 3 September – Sunday 7 September 2013

Laura Harrington :A Lively Sense of Nature

Laura Harrington presents a series of works in progress, which all explore a so-called ‘lively’ sense of nature. The works are made in response to an immersion and development of an intimate relationship with a particular and otherworldly landscape around 50 miles from her city centre home. The site, Moss Flats, is an upland bare peat flat undergoing scientific monitoring in the North Pennines. These are moments of stasis in thinking from the first few months of a year-long Leverhulme Trust artist residency with Dr Jeff Warburton in the Department of Geography at Durham University.

Katrin Hanusch: Oversea

Katrin Hanusch will present new work – a landscape abandoned of humans, absence visually written throughout space. It will include what the artist calls ‘ideas of architecture’ and ‘ideas of conceptual living space’. A model of a derelict building suggests the ruins of socialism — one of those dried out ideas — while a liquid flickers over a surface. Here past and present merge over fragments, marks and resonating memories.
