Launching on the same night, SPUR’S second publication ‘Collection Of’. The publication includes 13 editioned artist prints, a cassette, and a text based zine, featuring the work of local and international artists
The artists in Crossing Lines, some already internationally established and some newly emerging, all make work that explores the continuing relevance and potential of the non-objective image.
Additionally, in a number of Parallel Lines of enquiry, &Model has introduced additional works alongside and amongst the Crossing Lines exhibition, acting as an ‘interruption’, a re-framing device that extends the context.
The Reversing Machine is an exhibition designed by artists Sam Belinfante and Simon Lewandowski. At the exhibition’s core is the machine itself; a self-reversing mechanical power source. Any object attached will turn at a steady rate for a set time, then stop and be set into reverse – a mechanical palindrome.
Commissioned by Art Laboratory Berlin in 2012, the machine has expanded into an ongoing research project. For their contribution to A New Reality at The Tetley, Belinfante and Lewandowski reconstruct this collective work, incorporating fresh elements in response to the new venue. They have also developed individual works which reflect on their collaboration and on the concerns that generated The Reversing Machine. These include Accordion a new two-part film by Belinfante shot on 16mm film and SETTER a palindromic multiple by Lewandowski.
