Edward Cotterill is the next Gate Theatre Artist-in-Residence

Edward Cotterill, a recent MA Fine Art graduate (2009-10) from Chelsea College Art & Design is the next Artist-in-Residence at the Gate Theatre in Notting Hill.  The residency is part of the Gate Curate project at the Theatre and is funded by Chelsea Arts Club Trust and artists are selected in association with CHELSEA space.

Edward’s work responds to the play GROUNDED by George Brant and the Gate Theatre version is directed by Chris Haydon and stars Lucy Ellinson.  The image above is titled 1.2 Seconds or A Portrait Taken by the Artist Ryan Gander By The Artist Edward Cotterill.

Edward states ‘1.2 seconds is a self portrait where I contacted another artist to take my portrait, this was the instruction.  He had carte blanche to do as he pleased the only specification was that the shutter speed was 1.2 seconds (the time it takes from moving a control stick somewhere in the world for a drone aircraft to move in another part of the world).  I wished to relinquish control (responsibility) for work but still have ultimate responsibility for it.  It is mine, it is not mine.’

GROUNDED is at The Gate Theatre from 28th August – 21st September.  You can see Edward’s installation before a performance, or by appointment.

Artist Charlotte Jonerheim is selected for the second Gate Curate residency at the Gate Theatre

Artist Charlotte Jonerheim is selected for the second Gate Curate residency at the Gate Theatre, in association with CHELSEA space and funded by Chelsea Arts Club Trust.

Artist Charlotte Jonerheim has been selected for the second artist in residence award at the Gate Theatre.  A recent graduate from MA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and Design, Jonerheim will be responding to Howard Brenton’s new version of ‘Dances of Death’ by August Strindberg.  You will be able to see Jonerheim’s foyer installation during the play’s run, 6th June – 6th July 2013.

About the artist

Jonerheim has recently returned from India, having been selected for a three-month residency Arts for India Scholarship based at the International Institute of Fine Arts in Delhi. Her work has been shown in many exhibitions in London including a solo show of site-specific sculptural work at Clerks’ Well in Islington, having received the Islington Exhibits 2012 Artist Award.  Her work also features in the group show ‘SURFACE’ at Chelsea Futurespace.

In her practice Jonerheim questions and investigates the quotidian experience where objects and encounters hardly register. She is interested in the purposes of objects, both their functional and emotional intentions.

Her inquiries lie in the relationship with form and have through reason of practicality, psychological, emotional, remembrance or simply aesthetic purposes.  Objects through time and history may lose their value or significance and thereby run the risk of becoming overlooked, taken for granted and often discarded.

This reinvention of things is often done with a bit of humour and with an element of surprise and an unpredictable outcome. Her objective is to reintroduce things back into the environment as a new way of seeing, connecting and understand the world we live in, to evoke a different experience and encounter with familiar items and focus on a new attention and meaning.

Jonerheim is predominately interested in materials sourced from the domestic environment. With a little humour objects get reinvented through reassembly, often with a sense of theatricality. The artist’s aim is to evoke a different experience and encounter with familiar items and focus on a new attention and meaning.
