Cooper Summer Residency 2012: Making Words - Marking Words
6 July 2012 - 6 August 2012
David Bellingham, Cally Spooner, Jesper List Thomsen
Cooper Summer Residency is a space for artists to reflect upon and experiment with new ideas and strategies that will extend their practice. The residency is based on a desire to investigate the means and potential of working in an environment that supports the exchange and sharing of resources and knowledge. It also provides audiences with an alternative way to observe, encounter and engage with contemporary art.
For this year's residency, we are delighted to host artists David Bellingham, Cally Spooner, Jesper List Thomsen to be in residence at the CAB (Centre for Artists' Books), DJCAD. These three artists share a common focus on Artists' Books and text based works, with an interest in exploring expanded notions of the book, writing and reading within the contexts of space/time and performativity: Cally Spooner, has completed several ambitious solo projects and recently a residency at Cite Des Arts Paris; Jesper List Thomsen, a Danish artist living and working in London who has exhibited internationally; and David Bellingham an artist based in Scotland has also exhibited widely across the UK and abroad.
During the residency period, audiences will be invited to a Meet the Artists event where they will have the chance to engage with the artists' works in progress and have informal discussions with the artists.
Meet the Artists: Thursday 26 July, 2pm, Centrespace, Visual Research Centre. VRC is part of DJCAD and is located on the lower floors of Dundee Contemporary Arts, 152 Nethergate, Dundee.
Cooper Summer Residency 2012 Exhibition: Later in the year there will be an exhibition at Cooper Gallery which opens with a preview event on 20 September and runs until 10 October 2012. Cooper Gallery is in the Crawford Building at DJCAD.
