Inspiral, an exhibition on a theme of static motion, an installation in shape and sound. A minimal world of multiple dimensions from the mind of Japanese artist Fumico Azuma. It‘s an exploration into the notion of perpetual movement through the use of static material. Using plywood, cut, hung and pulled away from flat surfaces into three dimensional forms where the space between becomes just as significant as that which is filled. Simple in concept, though far from simplistic, it draws you into a depth of spacial awareness where your own movement governs how the work is experienced. In conjunction with projections and the in house sound collage of ZUZUSHII MONKEY, this is unlike any other body of work you‘ll see in Hastings.

An exhibition in celebration of the ambiguous. A visual, vibrant journey through 2 and 3D collage, mixed media assemblage, sculpture, prints and total abstraction. Taking part are Fumico Azuma, Tim Can, Peter Quinnell, James Roseveare, Mark Soye and April Yasamee. There‘s much to see on many levels and some of the exhibition will be rotated over the duration, so visiting more than once is recommended.

Wednesday 12th May to Wednesday 9th June. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.

To break a rule, there is no private view, we want to avoid a large number of people turning up at the same time. However, you are all more than welcome to pay us a visit in your own good time.

All work is by Fumico Azuma and Tim Can – Installations and mixed media collage, many pieces as yet unseen due to obvious reasons. 

So please come to help us and to help us all, come back to life.

Many thanks –

This four-week Photohastings show, “We Baked All Our Own Bread” (one mischief always leads to another), is a group show of photographs, taken during and subsequent to, the lockdown earlier this year. The title references the book by Daniel Defoe, ‘A Journal of the Plague Year’, published in 1722.
It is a fictionalised account of one man’s experiences of the Great Plague in the city of London in the year 1665. Although written nearly one hundred years after the plague it is pertinent to the situation that we find ourselves in today.

With regard to the ordinary people at that time Defoe wrote,” Where they could get employment they pushed into any kind of business, the most dangerous and the most liable to infection; and if they were spoken to, their answer would be, ‘I must trust to God for that; if I am taken, then I am provided for, and there is an end of me’, and the like. Or thus, ‘Why, what must I do? I can’t starve. I had as good have the plague as perish for want. I have no work; what could I do? I must do this or beg.”
Shades of our present day peril

The work in this show has been made away from the general hubbub of the pandemic; whilst the practitioners involved were isolated but driven by the need to create. What is pertinent here is that the work is often reflective, in some cases indicative of open-ended review of an open-ended situation. We now have a history of the modern pandemic to study and more difficulties ahead. What we can be certain of is that the need to communicate and to converse using the vocabulary of the photographic image endures.
