Red - new exhibition at CRATE
A new exhibition at CRATE featuring Sculpture, Painting, Photography, Installation and Video.
RED brings together new works made in 2011 by Margate-based artists Tom Swift and Mark John Smith.
Private view: 19 March 2011 6PM – 9PM
Exhibition continues: 19, 20, 26, 27 March 11am – 5pm
RED aims to explore the interdependencies between: gallery – museum, location and place.
Although the works on show were conceived and produced separately, they share both a common aesthetic and conceptual approach.
Tom Swift’s practice relies on a ‘make and do’ ethos. The final works shown are a reduction of this process.
Mark John Smith’s practice is concerned with the juxtaposition of the ‘elite’ with the mundane. His sculptural works include essences from 1960’s Minimalism. These key historical aesthetic signifiers are then represented through the engagement and appropriation of utilitarian objects sourced from the everyday.
