as part of our yearly quarter of programme exclusively for gray's school of art students, we welcomed our first show by the artist duo "hear no evil see no evil" made up of alice bethune spicer and jasmin bray triance whilst in their final year at the art school. the event was an interactive drawing and sound project resulting in a wide range of drawings done by all participants
photographer alice meyers spent the best of two weeks in gallery 2 inviting people to come and share old or new photos, snap shots or masterpieces, have tea and a biscuit and chat. She displayed a set of her own prints large format and had books available to view
all project slogan patrons and their friends and acquaintances partied hearty at the thought of xmas and a new of art related events at the gallery. we all crammed into gallery 2 with decorations, music, party poppers and appropriate refreshments ;) a good time was had by all!
in an adaption of a previous show of a similar tact, artist rowan corkhill installed three large light boxes full of old photographs with no light except that which came out of their eyes where he had poked holes with a pin. he also had made an eerie and subtle sound piece looped during the show
the two performance artists jean-pierre lapeyre (as his alias jack the hardworker) and jo muir (as a giant cardboard smile) generated a lot of interest with their compelling live performance held outside the aberdeen art gallery in the city centre. the performance, coinciding with an annual exhibition at the art gallery, raised issues about working as a contemporary artist today and attracted a very interesting audience
