Daniel Eatock: One + One
8 February – 31 March 2012
Open: Tues-Fri 12-6pm, Sat 12-4pm
Stanley Picker Fellow Daniel Eatock will be working on-site at the Gallery every Wednesday for the 8-week duration of his new exhibition One + One to produce a brand new body of work that has originated as part of initial developmental research for the re-branding of national television network BBC2.
One + One has been developed over the course of Eatock’s Stanley Picker Fellowship, in close collaboration with staff and students at Kingston University, and will result in an extensive series of new object-based works that each establishes a range of formal, practical or conceptual conceits connecting two otherwise independently existing objects.
As well as containing around 100 specific objects that have been specially sourced over recent weeks ready to combine into their One + One pairings, the Gallery installation (pictured above) is dominated by a specially commissioned ‘infinity-cove’. The largest single structure built for the Gallery by technician Marc Bultitude in the eight years he has been working for the venue, the imposing structure is nontheless designed in such as way so as not to be visible in the completed works.
Over the course of the exhibition, Gallery visitors will be invited to participate in aspects of the production process; the exhibition content evolving continually as the original objects are employed, and re-employed, in the execution of the final works.
Participants and Gallery Visitors are all invited to a special Closing Event on Saturday 31 March 12 – 4pm being held to celebrate all 8 weeks of works made for One + One.
