A Collective event at Filmhouse, Edinburgh

Collective has organised a unique, two-day Summer School and screening event to coincide with Mick Peter's exhibition, Lying and Liars, which opens at Collective on 2 August.

The programme takes the work of British avant-garde novelist and filmmaker B.S. Johnson as its starting point and will concentrate on the relationship between text, language and the moving image.

The school will include six individual sessions; a combination of workshops, screenings and discussions, culminating in a special evening programme of film, Lying and Liars on Film, on Friday 3 August, curated by Mick Peter with writer/curator Steven Cairns. The Summer School will also include a practical writing workshop and a look at the history of text in moving image along with a session by Mick Peter.

In a discussion of the seen and unseen, the spoken and unspoken, the nameable and the unnameable Ross will draw upon works by Vito Acconci, Samuel Beckett, Jean-Luc Godard, Joao Penalva and Andrei Tarkovsky.

Thursday 2 August, 12pm - 6.30pm
Peter Mackay
Writer Peter Mackay will lead a practical writing workshop, using the work of B.S. Johnson and his contemporaries as inspiration.

This exhibition is curated by Norman and Sarah-Manning Shaw and is part of Edinburgh Art Festival 2012

Lift Access

The old goods lift at 100 Eastvale Place has been lovingly restored over the last few months giving easy access to all three upper levels. Resident artists and clients of the photography studio and venue can now drive into the building and load all equipment directly into the lift avoiding the painful ascend of the front stairwell. This also means that the entire buiding is now accesible to disabled artists and audience members.


Island - Bobby Niven

Exhibition Preview July 20, 19.00 - 21.00

Exhibition Open July 21 - Aug 11

Preview After Party 21.00 - 02.00

In the shadow of the magnificent steel structured Forth Rail Bridge lies an uninhabited rocky islet named Inchgarvie. Once providing isolated refuge for syphilis victims, later a prison and quarantine for plague victims and during the First and Second World Wars fending off air and submarine attacks, the island is today the ruinous concrete home to colonies of seabirds. Fulmars, herons and cormorants migrate to nest here over the summer, their wheeling, diving, squawking and excreting of guano prohibit human access through a fierce occupation of the land.

Bobby Niven's ISLAND project takes this landmark and expands its cultural location by utilising prop, moving image, artefact and sculpture in order to build a narrative that stretches the time and landscape of the film. It peels away a history of psychic layers and employs the island's entropic materiality as a means to transport the viewer through a bodily experience.
The exhibition consists of three parts: the film, the grey room filled with quiet monumental sculptures and the orange room screeching with inert birdlike depictions.

Similar renderings were sculpted in Niven's studio and transported to the island where he installed them, like offerings, in exchange for making his film. He returned with flotsam, jetsam, bird bones and objects washed ashore from the busy shipping lane and the Sisyphean task of repainting the bridge.

Collective Gallery Press Release - Mick Peter | Lying and Liars

Collective Gallery
Press Release

Mick Peter
Lying and Liars
2 August – 30 September 2012
Part of Edinburgh Art Festival

Lying and Liars is a new installation created specifically for Collective's space by Glasgow-based artist Mick Peter. The exhibition title is derived from British novelist B.S. Johnson's idea that narrative fiction is a form of 'lying' and the show explores the conflict between storytelling and formal experimentation by mixing different sculptural and architectural idioms. As well as showing Johnson's short film Paradigm in the project space there will also be a screening event, Lying and Liars on Film at the Filmhouse, Edinburgh on Friday 3 August. A range of Johnson's short films will be seen alongside films by experimental filmmakers and artists, which mix reflexive and experimental forms as ways of investigating the inadequacies of language.

This festival exhibition may be Collective's last in its present home. The gallery is moving from its long-term home on Cockburn Street to the City Observatory on Calton Hill. Collective has a role of developing new talent in the visual arts in Scotland and internationally; Mick Peter exemplifies this process. Collective both nurtures and challenges artists at pivotal stages in their career, Mick was first selected for New Work Scotland Programme in 2000, its inaugural year. Since that time Mick has gone on to exhibit internationally, and was included in the British Art Show 7 in 2010. Collective has taken this opportunity to present Mick's work to an international audience during Edinburgh Art Festival 2012 as a chance to reflect upon the organisation's activities over the last 12 years as it prepares for further developments.

Mick Peter
Born in Berlin. Lives and works in Glasgow.
MFA, Glasgow School of Art, 1998-2000 BA, Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford. 1994-1997
