When:7 - 21 December
Tom Buckland, Nicci Haynes and Dan Moor present new works
Think of a device that’s a cross between a flick book and a conveyor belt. Recall the phenakistoscope, the zoetrope and the praxinoscope, and you might get close to imagining the sort of moving-image device that Nicci Haynes is constructing for this exhibition. Strange magic indeed.
Four billion years later and we have lots of big questions and a huge amount of answers that fail to address the bigness of the questions. Are they the right questions? Dan Moor has set loose thirty thousand used cable tie ends into the world to see what they do and if they can be any help.
Tom Buckland presents a series of drawing machines that will autonomously create artworks of a random nature. Incorporating interactive elements (levers, motion sensors and buttons) allows the audience to directly influence the drawings that are being produced. By replacing the artist’s hand with a mechanical arm, these machines prompt us to ask – do we even need artists anymore?
Join us for the official opening on Friday 7 December, at 6pm.
Exhibition continues until Friday 21 December.
The evening is also TACs celebration of the year that was and the official launch of TAC’s 2019 Program. Click here to find out more about TAC’s Big Bang
