The Artist will be present at the launch for two performances at 12:00 and 14:30.
turntable gallery is pleased to present a body of work by the artist and researcher, Simon Ringe.
Without Within presents artworks that considers how the void, the without, might be creatively explored from within. The show begins with ‘Fog Box’ that obscures the expected clarity of a shop window, and continues with gestured autographic body drawings, short movies and a small automated piece. The works make evident the adrift sense of ‘lostness’ and the turbulent confusion of the unknown through the seeming manifestation of barriers.
The show considers how space is activated and considered from within via restrictive and limiting strategies. In that regard the void, as a place of unknowing, establishes the interior subjective self, the within, in relation to the elusory without.
Simon Ringe (b.1965, Colne, Lancashire) studied Fine Art at Maidstone College of Art & Design (1985-88), then the Royal College of Art (1988-90), and has lectured in Fine Art at Coventry University, Humberside Polytechnic, Cheltenham & Gloucester, the University of Lincoln and is a senior lecturer at Leeds Beckett University presently.
