“Wherever art appears, life disappears." Francis Picabia
Crate presents Lacuna, which documents the actions of a series of personas inhabited by the artist Tom Duggan.
The exhibition, which will take place at Crate Project Space in Margate and at the Herbert Read Gallery at UCA in Canterbury, comprises performance, installation, found objects and text works.
Lacuna portrays ‘an artist who isolates himself for our spectacle’, regarding the tradition of disappearing artists like Bas Jan Ader and Lee Lozano, while considering, perhaps ironically, how such artists have entered into art history.

In the first part of the show, which takes place in Crate’s Project Space 1, she attempts to piece together the biography of the owner of a collection of letters and postcards found on a roadside in Sicily.

Crate presents two new works:
A Translation of El Arbol de la Ciencia (The Tree of Science) by Pío Baroja
JUAN CRUZ and NAAMA YURIA:
A Translation of La Sima (The Chasm) by Pío Baroja
For the third exhibition in Crate’s programme for 2009/10, two stories by Spanish writer Pío Baroja (1872-1956) are translated. These new works stem from artist Juan Cruz’s long-running interest in staging the interpretation of text from Spanish into English, treating it as a metaphor for visual representation and exploring the performative and physical aspects of the process.

LAUNCH EVENT: 13/11/09 6-9PM AT THE SHELL GROTTO, GROTTO HILL, MARGATE, CT9 2BU
EXHIBITION THEN OPENS: 15/11/09 AND 19-22/11/09 12-5PM AT CRATE PROJECT SPACE
Crate has commissioned Juneau Projects to create a new live work for Margate’s famous Shell Grotto. The piece, entitled ‘Formosa’ (the former name for Taiwan - from the Portuguese word for ‘beautiful’), builds upon the artists' ongoing interests in both vernacular architecture and in the potential for crossover between musical performance and artistic production.
It takes as its starting point the enigmatic history of the Grotto and its documented use as a place for séances, also considering the use of electrical technology as a means for recording paranormal activity.
The underground Grotto, in which 4.6 million shells form an uninterrupted 2000sqft mosaic of patterns and symbols, was discovered in 1835 by James Newlove when he lowered his son into a hole that appeared as they were digging a duck pond. Its original purpose is still the subject of much speculation: It has been described variously as a pagan temple, a Georgian folly and the meeting place for a secret cult.
