Where: Metal at Edge Hill Station, Tunnel Road, Liverpool L7 6ND
FREE – please book online:
Metal present another of our innovative Process events this April, offering a chance to hear from three talented artists as they develop new work at Metal’s Edge Hill Station.
Process: Meanwhile Space will see artists Marcus Coates, Cristina Lina, and Neville Gabie discuss their plans to activate a local disused ‘meanwhile space.’ Part discussion, part sharing of work-in-progress, the event is a chance to get close to the creative process.
Process is a free event, but please book a place online:
Marcus Coates: http://www.katemacgarry.com/artists/marcus-coates/
Marcus Coates is a contemporary artist living in London. He is recognised for his performances and installations that employ shamanistic rituals and contrast natural and manmade making processes. In 2013 he was shortlisted for the Fourth plinth, Trafalgar Square artwork (2015/16).
Cristina Lina: http://cristinalina.com/
Cristina Lina has a background in graffiti and mural painting and continues to work with this format as well as experimenting with quilt making (something she describes as ‘the opposite of spray-painting’) ceramics, performance, print and installation. Her work is explicitly fun, yet at the same time she hopes disarming, creating a certain chaos through the possibilities that emerge from the people involved.
Neville Gabie: http://nevillegabie.com/
With a background in sculpture, Neville Gabie’s work has always been driven by a response to specific locations or situations caught in a moment of change. Highly urbanized or distantly remote, his work is a response to the vulnerability of place. Gabie’s interest is in establishing a working relationship within a particular community as a means of considering its physical, cultural or emotional geography.
