Early Warning is Mark Devereux Projects’ third annual associate members exhibition, showcasing the strength and diversity of its membership, currently comprising over 50 artists. The exhibition was open to submit to all artists, working in any medium, who are members of Mark Devereux Projects. Each year, the changing panel of selectors is made up of artists, curators and writers.

This year’s exhibition, Early Warning has been selected by Melissa Hinkin (Artes Mundi), Michelle Bowen (UK Young Artists), and the Directors of &Model Gallery (Derek Horton, James Chinneck and Chris Bloor). The selected artists are Jo Clements, Daisy Forster, James Harper, Gareth Kemp, Darren Nixon, Willow Rowlands, Richard Starbuck, Dickie Webb and Louise Winter.

“We’re proud to be collaborating with &Model Gallery, showcasing the practices of nine of our current associate artists within Early Warning. We had a great day talking with the selectors for the exhibition about the quality and variety of submissions received and look forward to working with each of the selected artists to show their work in this year’s exhibition.” [Mark Devereux, Director Mark Devereux Projects]

“&Model is happy to be involved in working with Mark Devereux Projects and the other selectors to bring some excellent new work to Leeds as part of our continuing project which shows a diverse range of international contemporary artists alongside some of the region’s emerging practitioners.” [Derek Horton, &Model]

I know I have been quiet the last few months whilst on residency at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshops.  I have just moved out but I am still in Edinburgh as I am installing a new work as part of Paradigm Electronic Arts Exhibition at Summerhall in Edinburgh.  I am really grateful for this exhibition as the timing is perfect and to see some of the works that I will be exhibiting alongside makes me feel honoured for being selected.  The exhibition opens this Friday and then is open for just over a week.  There are 40 artists involved and the show will be truly interactive with works varying from VR and projection mapping to works that take you back to 90’s raving.  The senses will be taken on a journey with this show.

The work I am installing is called ‘Fence In’ and is a new piece that builds on previous glitch works that I have made in Athens and Yerevan. This work combines those glitch techniques with field recordings from here in Edinburgh.  Here is a link to the synopsis:
