KIERAN ROOK

Friday 1ST – Sunday 3rd December 2017

PRIVATE VIEW: Saturday 2ND December 6-9PM 2017

OPENING TIMES: Friday 12-9pm, Saturday 12-9pm and Sunday 12-6pm 2017

Temporarily Simulated the new work by artist Kieran Rook exists somewhere between a disturbing truth and a restless dream; an investigation into the distortion of human experience created vicariously through different platforms of engagement. This piece acts as a visual and audible metaphor tracing a course through turbulent, virtual and perhaps ideological times. The nature of this project also lends itself to the ongoing dichotomy between the mediums of painting and sculpture, as well as being a mechanism of reflection – visual and cognitive – particularly the various displays of geometric forms that are activated and experienced by the viewer in situ.

BIO Kieran Rook is a UK based multidisciplinary artist who specialises in large scale installations, sculpture, painting, and sound art. Recently exhibited at Turner Contemporary, Margate for the Platform Award 2017 and also taking part in Optic Illusions at Brewery Tap UCA project space alongside the Folkestone Triennial 2017. https://kieranrookart.com/

Lizzy Rose: ARRANGEMENT

Exhibition and workshop postponed due to ill health - new dates to follow soon

A layer of living moss forms an indoor landscape in Lizzy Rose’s new audio-visual installation at CRATE.
Incorporating video, sound, hand-made objects and manipulated plant-life, the work explores landscape, form, nostalgia and the pursuit of knowledge between cultures.

Lizzy Rose visited Japan in 2016 to research a form of floristry called Ikebana which has been practised for over 600 years. Rose's interest lies in the hidden culture surrounding this art form, which she examines by drawing parallels between The Art of Flower Arranging, a book produced in the 1950's, and the classes held today in Tokyo by the Ohara School of Ikebana for International students.

The Art of Flower Arranging by Ishimoto is a instructional guide on how to use the simplified principles of Ikebana to decorate your home. Ishimoto encourages the user to observe nature and landscape. Pure Ikebana is more precise, combining geometry and natural forms; the wildness of nature meeting rational aesthetics. By replicating landscape it aims to create a transformative space that evokes the sublime, which is described as a kind of spirituality, or sacred place.

Alongside the exhibition there will be an opportunity to take part in a workshop creating your arrangement from nature. This will be a free workshop. Time and venue to be confirmed. The exhibition was funded by the Arts Council, The Great Britain Saskawa Foundation and CRATE.

About the artist:
Lizzy Rose (b. 1988) is a British artist who lives and works in Margate. Her work explores community, British identity and hidden culture. She has a severe form of Crohns disease. She studied at Central Saint Martins' School of Art and Design. Lizzy Rose was part of artist-led space, LIMBO in Margate from 2012-15 and now is part of the programming team at CRATE.

Harry Chapman: DOUBLE PARALLEL

Wednesday 23 November 2016, 5-9pm

CRATE is pleased to present a new work by artist Harry Chapman to kick-off a series of related events that fall somewhere between offering a methodology and means to re-think the positivised 'full-presence' of the performing body, especially when our current social life is being put to work constantly without value.

Double Parallel is a looped projection work predicated on the axiomatic function of moving-image – being both recorded and played back at the same speed. The material of the work is therefore its composition, rather than the time and space which passes for its content.

As a principle or score, Double Parallel maintains a paradoxical relation to the site at CRATE - in which it is both autonomous and contingent on any given future realisation.

To the extent that this work is concerned with an immediate relation between its realisation and its exhibition, its material is synonymous with that of performance; with the difference that it consists entirely of its own documentation.

About the artist:
Since graduating in July 2012 Harry Chapman (b. 1988, graduated Central Saint Martins (BA Fine Art, 4D)) has worked on an independent basis between London and Europe. Whilst studying, the principal form of his work was performance - concerned in particular with non-mediated processes and simultaneity. During the time since graduating Chapman has realised a number of pieces of work on digital video, recorded directly to tape and played back from tape - as well as exhibiting some of his work at an independent space in central London (a.m., 10 Copperfield St.l, SE1 0EL). There is a direct (as opposed to implicit or biographical) relation between Chapman's earlier work in performance, the work on digital video tape, and more recent work made in relation to a score – as at CRATE.
