1. In Gallery 2 from 9 November

    Matt Calderwood (b. 1975, Northern Ireland; lives London) explores the potential of sculptural language by examining the physical properties and dynamic between materials. Elements of chance and failure play an important role in Calderwood’s process-based practice, which often involves carefully choreographed experiments to test the physical limits of a material.

    The exhibition presents two commissions specific to the Pavilion’s architecture and environment. Made of welded steel and paper, materials with contrasting qualities, Exposure Sculptures are a group of geometric structures which will be placed on the outdoor roof terrace for several months before being reassembled and presented in the gallery. Exposed to extreme conditions such as heavy wind, salty air and the intense sunlight of the south coast, the sculptures will go through dramatic weathering and transformation.

  2. In Gallery 1 from 9 November

    Alison Turnbull (b. 1956, Bogotá, Colombia; lives London, UK) makes abstract paintings from found materials such as cluster diagrams, architectural plans, and star charts. The process of translating the diagrammatic information into pictorial form is slow and painstaking. She describes how ‘the original image, edited and then re-imagined in colour through the process of painting, gradually detaches itself from its source, is freed from its history and exists in the present tense. I attempt to give equal weight to the cultural and scientific context of the found material, the formal properties of painting and the material activities involved in making the work. It’s a delicate sort of balancing act.’

  3. Using a banjo, Kieran engages the audience in his world; a passion for African American and European musical styles amalgamating in Appalachia in the 1700's. He attempts to do what a banjo player would do in its original mountain environment. Through constantly retuning the banjo, an atmosphere is created where the banjo is in control.

    Kieran Kennedy Young's performance was part of Dear Serge November 2013 at the De La Warr Pavilion.

  4. Dust Music is an audiovisual work by the artist Trevor Shearer in collaboration with musicians Robert Jack (electronics), Chris Heinrichs (violin), Luca Nasciuti (cello), Jack Lowe (double bass) and Jockel Liess (project and video score realization).

    For this electro-acoustic realization of Dust Music, live electronic reverb and feedback is added as a fourth musical element. Freely improvised, it reflects on and interacts with its three notated acoustic counterparts, in a revolving dialogue of reaction and interaction between the performers.

    Dust Music lasts twenty-one minutes. It features the video source, the animated notation, and live performance so that the relationship between all of the material is present for the audience.
