Programme ➔ Artist Residencies ➔ Whisper Residency (2003-2013)
2009 Dec 01 (is beginning date)
2009 Dec 23 (has end date)
Short residency by two UK based artists who had taken part in residencies in China: Sarah Sanders at the Breathe Chongqing residency at 501 Artspace, Jan 2009, and Daniel Staincliffe at the Red Gate Gallery, Beijing, Apr 2009. The residence space was open for the two artists to simultaneously present works developed during their residencies in China and to further develop their research.
Staincliffe explored the subtleties in our everyday environments, using photography, sculpture, audio and video recordings. The works examined how chance is often employed to avoid total conscious. Sanders’ works captured the passage of time in drawings. A shift towards the performance aspects of their work caused the artist to question and explore live performance art.
The residency space was open to the public throughout the residency.
