Memory Palace

11 - 28 October 2018 

Memory Palace is a collaborative project focussing on creative processes. Together with a group of international students from various artistic fields (photography, stage design, animation and choreography) Captain Lightfoot explore methods that allow us to create works that are devoid of critical thought and are more free and intuitive. The resulting homonymous exhibition will be shown at GAMU (The Gallery of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague) in October 2018.

Supported by: Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Ministry of Culture Czech Republic, STEP Beyond (European Cultural Foundation)

Open daily except Monday, 10am –12 pm and 1–6 pm

GAMU (Gallery AMU), Malostranské náměstí 12, Prague

Strange Loop

2nd - 4th December 2016 ( Norway)

Strange Loop is a group exhibition by Captain Lightfoot.  In collaboration with Babel , Captain Lightfoot will present new works by its three founders, Anneli Holmstrom, Emma Pratt and Kadie Salmon alongside Norwegian artist Petter Solberg

Strange Loop, will explore the concept of symbolism and narrative in relation to sculptural form. The focus will be on the individual object: exploring the shifting narrative structures present within sculptures and their occupied space. To do this the invited artists will consider how the assemblage and alteration of physical components within an artwork affects and distorts its inherent symbolic components. Like words in a sentence, that when reshuffled, form new meanings, the show strives for a curatorial device to examine the transient state of narrative in relation to the sculptural form itself: by means of a physical process. 

The new works of each artist will be reassembled daily over the course of the exhibition, inviting viewers to re-visit the shifting works and forge new readings from each new alteration.

This project is support by The Henry Moore Foundation.

EDINBURGH 11

13th March 2016, 9am - 4pm

Exhibition involving work of 11 artists from Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop to show their work at Ebor Studios. 

The art works shown will engage with found objects and ‘undecipherable artefacts‘. The artists use objects, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, film and drawing to explore human intuition, experimentation and to develop or understand human relationships with objects, material and space. Involved will be references to the Greek myth of Narcissus and writings of Gaston Bachelard.
This will also be a chance to see works and studio spaces from Ebor’s resident artists.

 

Organised by artists and Ebor Programme Manager, Martha Lyons Haywood

Thinking / Making: does making help creative thinking?

5th December 2015 - 5 February 2016

Curious Projects has invited artists to submit maquettes for their 'Thinking/Making' exhibition. Rather than finished work, they looked for three-dimensional 'sketches', models and maquettes, made as part of the artists' creative thinking process. These could be a kind of 'making' used purely as a thinking tool and/or as an aid to making actual work.

For this show, the 27 window panes of the gallery are transformed into display boxes/shelves showing the selected maquettes/models.

CAPTAIN LIGHTFOOT - FINLAND 2015

8th October 2015

The Usher is the next group exhibition by Captain Lightfoot. Working together with GalleriGro and Novia University we will  present new works by all of us members of the collective; further exploring our ongoing research into narrative in visual art.

Stripping GalleriGro of its own light and structure a little like the creeping Finnish winter,  Captain Lightfoot will create a new and unfamiliar space for the viewer; one primarily of darkness. Vahtimestari (The Usher) is a performative exhibition that intimately leads the viewer through its space. Different artworks and details of the building emerge from the darkness; exposed for varying lengths of time these artworks demand the viewers attention before disappearing again.   

Captain Lightfoot act as the usher in this performance; playfully exploring the language created between the artworks themselves and their occupied space, whilst questioning  the viewers own placement within this narrative.

The Hospital for Dazed Art is a series of conversations and informal surgeries initiated by Iain Sturrock and Delia Baillie that explores why artists (secretly) retain certain works in their studios for years at a time without publically showing / recycling / or trashing them, and what this means in terms of editorial integrity. The exhibition at The Briggait showcases nine artists whom The Hospital has worked with during 2012 and 2013.

 

The Briggait Project Spaces, Wasps, Glasgow. Opening Night: Friday 7 February 2014, 6 - 9pm
