3-Phase

New work by Larry Achiampong, Mark Essen and Nicola Singh, developed through 3-Phase.

The selected artists, each at pivotal moments in their career, have demonstrated a commitment to challenging and pushing the boundaries of traditional modes of exhibition making. Inherent to their respective proposals is a strong research-base and pertinent social narratives, which surface through sculpture, performance and technology.

Larry Achiampong will present Relic Traveller - a new multi-disciplinary project manifesting in performance, audio, moving image and prose. Taking place across various landscapes and locations, the piece builds upon a postcolonial perspective informed by technology, agency and the body, and narratives of migration.

Mark Essen will present a new body of work exploring values of our archaic economy and offering suggestions of an alternative structure - specifically degrowth - a political, economic and social movement based on ecological economics. By incorporating hydroponics into the work, the artist communicates how urban agriculture may be used as a form of resilience, redressing the Balance with nature.

Nicola Singh will continue to find ways of writing via performance and through experiments in pedagogy. She is interested in the organisation of language around the body and in relation to the voice. Her work will take the form of a multifaceted performance, including live readings, experimental music and dialogue with other artists. She will also produce an installation and series of performative objects for her performance, feeling through ideas around exhibiting performance in the context of the gallery.

3-Phase is a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Workplace Gallery, Gateshead and Eastside Projects, Birmingham and explores a new model for working in partnership to support the development of early career artist's work over a sustained period of time.

The three artists have been selected to develop a series of new work with the curatorial assistance of each organisation, which will tour to each partner location. The project was first trialed in 2015 through the Jerwood Encounters series, working with artists Kelly Best and Georgie Grace.
