The 2010 Independents start here.
CHAOSMOS has taken over all 3 floors of the View Two gallery and it’s excellent! I hope people don’t take it the wrong way if I say it’s typically Independents with its mix of paintings, sculpture, installation, video all so different, strange, unnerving but not just thrown together. It’s a high-spec well considered show curated by lead artist Chris Boyd.
Visitors are invited to turn the wheel on Masahiro Tomioka’s device to create swirling patterns in the liquid and watch the video of his other works that are somewhere between art and science.
We also took part in the social dream project run by C James Fagan using dream-catchers along with more hi-tech equipment.
There are excellent paintings by Jane Ward and James Roper as well as Chris Boyd’s own work and many others.
There are various events taking place including VJ and Screening nights and a talk in partnership with Culturepool, check out the View Two listings for details.
Exhibition: Tuesday 07 September 2010 – Saturday 02 October 2010
Chaosmos is an arts initiative that aims to research and develop the production of an array of mixed media artwork, animations, video and live art. It is curated by Chris Boyd, the Lead Artist, and platforms a collection of international and renowned art in a unique exhibition that investigates turbulent visual planes within the conceptual framework of Chaosmos (a Joycean coinage).
The exhibition attempts to map meta-physical states, track intermittent interference whilst revealing a preoccupation with the creative process, pictorial puzzles and the integration of traditional artist techniques with current post production methods.
