UPCOMING

A LABOURED SPECTRUM

Tim Gonchoroff

30. April 2016, 8pm

Exhibit runs till 1.May

 

Within the realm of the plant kingdom is a diverse spectrum of colours that is only visible through human intervention. Natural dyes from plants have existed for millennia and nearly every culture has its own history with them. And, although this historic craft has been predominantly replaced with synthetic and chemical processes, their origins resonate in spectrum of materials present in our everyday lives. A Laboured Spectrum is an exhibition that catalogues the diverse flora of Tromsø through natural dyeing. With both tactile and digital installations, viewers are encouraged to interact with and discover hidden properties of the plants that commonly go unnoticed.

 

Tim Gonchoroff is a U.S. based multimedia artist from the Appalachian region of Virginia. He is currently a Fulbright Research Fellow at the Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art. He received his BA in art history from the College of William & Mary and an MFA in sculpture from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

MENTAL

by THE VACUUM CLEANER (UK)

Performance 27. and 28. April 2016, 5pm

VÅRSCENEFEST 2016

 

Small Projects is once again collaborating with RadArt, network organization for independent performing arts, during their annual performance festival, the Vårscenefest (Spring Stage Stage Festival). This year, Small Projects is hosting the performance Mental by the Vacuum Cleaner.

 

The Metropolitan Police call him a Domestic Extremist. The NHS have described him as ‘highly disturbed’ and labelled him with Borderline Personality Disorder. ‘A real and present threat to the safe running of our lawful business’ is how E.ON described him at the Royal Courts of Justice.

 

He prefers the term Mental.

 

After 13 years of being an outlaw and inpatient, artist activist ‘the vacuum cleaner’ presents an autobiographical performance told through his psychiatric records, police intelligence files and corporate injunctions collected through the Data Protection Act.

 

This show contains material some may find challenging, and is not suitable for people under the age of 16.

 

The vacuum cleaner is an art and activism collective of one.

 

Over the last decade, artist and activist collective of one, the vacuum cleaner, has become semi-notorious for his acts of street brandalism, performance interventions and online pranks. Yet during this time he has also battled with severe mental illnesses and over the last two years this has become the focus of his work (and life).

 

He works predominantly with intervention based performances, videos and online with a focus on consumerism, climate change and mental health. His work has been exhibited throughout the UK including commissions from Tate Modern, ICA and Liverpool Biennial as well as BBC4, Channel 4 and Arte. He regularly presents work internationally both on the streets and in art spaces.

 

the vacuum cleaner is an Artsadmin Associate Artist and a co-founder of the Laboratory of Insurrectionary Imagination (2004 – 2009).
