Sput+Nik Gallery, Porto, Portugal presents Surfaces: Works on Paper, an exhibition of work by the AMBruno Arts Collective, curated by Steve Perfect and John McDowall. The idea of ‘skin deep’ is a commonplace, but some thinkers have sought to overturn this view of the superficial, and place significance, complexity and profundity in the surface. OHOS artist Ingrid Jensen is pleased to have the work pictured here included in the exhibition.
In June OHOS was pleased to host part of Cultivation Field, an excellent exhibition curated by Kate Corder as part of her PhD research at the University of Reading, It included Reading-based artists and some from as far afield as France, Germany, Denmark, Finland and the USA. Kate said: It explores plant and land cultivation through diverse art practices. Plant life could be considered a low-tech material, because it is vegetation, but in the second decade of the twenty-first century plant life is in constant production as part of consumerist high tech industry. Cultivation Field looks at the cracks in land cultivation systems, collective engagement within local communities, plant based objects and methods of production. www.cultivationfield.org The other part of the exhibition was hosted by Jelly. The image shows work installed in the Keep's garden by Rachael Champion.
