Social Practice Social
Primary, 6pm, 2 Feb
Social Practice Social is a monthly discussion forum for artists, programmers, community organisers, activists, and others working with participation, collaboration, public space, or social change. During the pandemic, many artists and organisations have been developing physical activity packs and remote resources for groups they can no longer work with face to face. In this session we’ll be sharing examples of these projects and discussing some of the challenges and joys of trying to work socially, from a distance. Bring along your own projects to share, and we might start a mail art project together!
This event will take place online via Zoom. Please register here to receive the meeting information: https://us02web.zoom.us/…/tZEpcO2uqjkqG9xBtN7rj4VOX2HbG…

Breathing In Art
Fermynwoods Contemporary Art
Breathing In Art is a new series by Fermynwoods Contemporary Art to support and promote mask wearing whilst celebrating and featuring selected artists. Whilst we’re amid a global pandemic and wearing masks to protect ourselves and others is part of everyday life, we’re inviting artists to design a range of masks that will be available to the public. The next in this series comes from Sapphire Goss, a video artist whose work explores experimental materiality and hybrid collaborative forms to make work that grows, decays and lives beyond the screen. Sapphire also recently created a new film based work, Neverending Jigsaw, as part of our Triple Harvest series of remixed archival films, which layers industrial textures and movement interspersed with bucolic hand tinted scenes of farmland.
