Stoke / Spode

I have recently returned from a short trip to Stoke on Trent to visit/take part in the project Resurrecting the Obsolete, a multi-disciplinary and participatory site-specific project initiated by Anne Helen Mydland and Neil Brownsword in collaboration with the British Ceramics Biennale (forthcoming in 2013). The project takes place in the former Spode ceramics factory, a large industrial site in the centre of Stoke Town, which is now abandoned and partly derelict. Ceramicists, sculptors, installation & performance artists, photographers and video makers took part in the initial workshop, which will continue in March 2013.


Upcoming activities

The research project Re: place at Bergen Academy of Art & Design (KHIB) is about to go live this autumn. Follow developments at the project blog  Re: place.

The first event will be an exhibition together with Scott Rettberg at the KHIB gallery Rom 8, from 5 - 14 October. More information following soon. During the exhibition period there will be a workshop/seminar and a guest lecture programme. Details to be found on the Re:place blog.
