Helen Edling – Once Upon a Space

In residence from 20th to 29th August
Event on Sunday 29th August, 4 – 6pm

For her residency at 25sg Helen Edling has invited 7 artists and writers to take part in a collaborative experimental exchange project.

The project is loosely based on the idea of the Rhizome where a story/micro-universe will be created over a period of 10 days through exchanges between the participants. A picture made by Helen functions as the starting point of the story after which, via words, images and connection points created by the participants, the project will evolve. Continuous non-hierarchical entries and exit points will allow for multiple interpretations and readings with Helen’s drawings in response being the link between the participants.

The result of the project and the identity of the participating artists will be revealed on Sunday the 29th where the project will be open for viewing and discussion.

All events are free and refreshments will be available. Guests are
welcome to bring food and drink to share.

Sally Madge – Making a Mess and Clearing Up

“Durational Performance Work- 20th March 2010 @ 25SG Gallery

Making a Mess and Clearing Up is a new durational work by Sally Madge which uses the white cube space of 25SG as a blank canvas for an outpouring of automatic drawing, taking the audience on a personal journey through recent art history in a unique suburban setting.

The artist, whilst blindfolded, drew using homemade charcoal for a three hour period. Then during the remainder of the day she cleaned, painted and restored the space to its original state, thus symbolically encasing the traces of the artwork within the walls of the gallery space.

Sally Madge is a Newcastle based artist whose multidisciplinary practice places a particular focus on ideas surrounding contemporary performance. She has recently exhibited and performed at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art as part of The Dream of Fluxus 2009.
