Flatfile: A Demonstration of Possibilities
21 September – 16 November 2013
Preview Friday 20 September, 6–8pm
Flatfile, Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR

Eastside Projects presents A Demonstration of Possibilities, an exhibition by Sophie Bullock, Freya Dooley and Sebastian Jefford in Flatfile, a plan-chest sited permanently within the gallery.

A Demonstration of Possibilities is a framework that is open to movement and alteration. In it Flatfile is converted into a growing and interactive toolbox where works appear as instructional or functional but for potentially unknowable or absurd uses.

For A Demonstration of Possibilities Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will present a collaboratively-developed whole work made of video, text and sculptural components, in which they respectively specialise.

Throughout September Sophie, Freya and Sebastian will undertake GO West, an ESP residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall. GO West gives artists from Spike Island Associates (Bristol), ESP (Eastside Projects, Birmingham) and WARP (G39, Cardiff) time and space to develop new ideas, connections and networks by spending time working together.

This is the fifth iteration of Flatfile, a project initiated as a platform for participants to make new connections through the development of new work.

Sculpture and Ventriloquism
A talk by Jon Wood
Tuesday 7 May, 6.30-8pm
Eastside Projects, 86 Heath Mill Lane, Birmingham, B9 4AR
£4 / £2 conc. / Free to ESP members

In this talk Jon Wood will look at sculptures that are evocative of ‘voice throwing’, considering the ways in which ventriloquism figures as a way of understanding how artists have used real (and imaginary) sound to animate their work.

Dr Jon Wood is Research Curator at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds where he coordinates the academic research programme and curates exhibitions. He specialises in twentieth-century and contemporary sculpture, with a particular and ongoing research interest in the artist’s studio. His writings have been recently reprinted in The Studio Reader (University of Chicago Press, 2010) and The Studio (MIT/Whitechapel, 2012). He is the HMI editor of the ‘Subject/Object’ series and one of the editors of Sculpture in Twentieth-Century Britain (2003). Recent publications include: Modern Sculpture Reader (with Alex Potts and David Hulks) (HMI 2007, and Getty 2012), United Enemies: The Problem of Sculpture in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s (2011), a new edition of Ede’s Savage Messiah (with Barassi and Silber) (2011) and Articulate Objects: Voice, Sculpture, and Performance (with Aura Satz) (2009).
