Rhubaba presents:


A pathetic exhibition.

Peter Amoore | David Blandy | Lucy Clout | Alan Currall | Josephine Flynn | Gelitin | Internet

Preview: Friday 21st September, 7-9pm
(Frankfurters will be served)

Exhibition open: 22nd September – 7th October, 2012.

Friday - Sunday 12-5pm


Josephine Flynn, Graduation, 1998


Peter Amoore (b. 1987) graduated in 2011 with a BA in Intermedia Art from Edinburgh College of Art. Recent exhibitions include Back Garden Bienniale, Edinburgh; Our Complex, Generator Projects, Dundee and Blockbuster, Central Reservation, Bristol.

David Blandy (b. 1976) is a contemporary artist based in Brighton and London who uses video, performance, digital technology, animation and comics to investigate the popular culture that surrounds us. He has exhibited widely, including shows at The Baltic, Gateshead; theLiverpool Biennial; Turner Contemporary, Margate; Spike Island, Bristol; and Platform China Project Space, Beijing. His work is distributed by LUX, and he is represented by Seventeen Gallery in London.

Lucy Clout (born 1980, Leeds, based London) gained her MA Sculpture at Royal College of Art, London (2009), and her BA Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, London (2004). Recent solo shows include Limoncello, London (2011); International Project Space, Birmingham (2010); Associates, London; 'The Way in Which it Landed', Tate Britain, London; and 'Associates in New York', Phillips de Pury & Co., New York (all 2008).

Alan Currall (b. 1964) has exhibited widely in group and solo shows at galleries including the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, Hayward Gallery, London, Malmö Konsthall, Malmö and Stills Gallery, Edinburgh. In 2002 he exhibited at the Jerwood Gallery as part of the Artist Platform series and was nominated for the Beck's Futures Prize in 2003.

Josephine Flynn (B. 1975, Leigh, based in Leeds) gained her MA Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University (2006), BA Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University (1998). Recent solo exhibitions include The International 3, Manchester; Axel Lapp, Berlin and Associates, London.

Gelitin is comprised of four artists. They met first in 1978 when they all attended a summer camp. They have been playing and working together. In 1993 they began exhibiting internationally and have since exhibited widely with recent solo shows including Greene Naftali Gallery, New York; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris and Kunsthalle Krems, Austria.

In the years that Internet has been active as a collective, it has written, developed and produced numerous performances and videos, working collaboratively with different people. The group is flexible, which means that not all of the members participate in the same way every time. Internet's performances involve candid conversations that are usually scripted and often require audience members to help out, to keep the show going to the end. Members include Diego Chamy and Siân Robinson Davies.


Project supported by Creative Scotland.




Rhubaba will soon announce the date of Semi-nauts - an afternoon of talks and performances addressing the meeting points between the recent exhibition, We are all U.F.O.-nauts and current show, Semi. Speakers, including practitioners and academics from various fields, will broadly address art's ability to alter systems of communication and ideas surrounding optimism and failure in contemporary art. Further information will be available on our website soon and an email invite will be sent as soon as more details are available.


Dates will shortly be announced for our first ever members exhibition with a guest selector also to be announced very soon. For more information on our membership schemes please see our website<>.

SWG3 Gallery presents:

The Quid by Owen Piper

Exibition Preview 14th September 7pm - 9pm

After Party 9pm - 2am (The Poetry Club)

Exhibition open 15th September - 20th October

Gallery hours Wed - Sat 12pm - 6pm


Next up in our Gallery, we have a solo show by British artist Owen Piper. The exhibition is entitled "THE QUID"

"All about everything...and a little bit more"

This was the slogan of the Quid book, the most popular annual encyclopedic ref
erence work in France, that first appeared in 1963 and stopped being published in 2007. It could also be used to define Owen Piper's work, inspired by anything from the Cannes festival photocall to international politics, footballers boots, ties, animal etc. For The Quid, Piper's paintings will be contextualised in an ambitious mix of sculptures and installations for the first time in SWG3 Gallery.


MUY Gallery presents:

Baldwin Ringsted - New works

Exibition Preview 14th September 7pm - 9pm

After Party 9pm - 2am (The Poetry Club)

Exhibition open 15th September - 20th October

Gallery hours Wed - Sat 12pm - 6pm


Often taking the form of sculptural installations, sound pieces, collaged paintings or works on paper, Baldvin Ringsted's artworks forever draw upon his experience as a musician. His practice explores the relationship between the formal properties of this discipline, and its cultural history and development. Moving between image and sound, his pieces often focus on points of transition or translation.

ESW 3 Exhibtions


Three Exhibitions
Opening: Friday 7th September, 7-9pm
Open: Monday 8th to Saturday 22nd September, 10am-5pm (not Sun)

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop presents three exhibitions displaying work from three different strands of our programme.

Laura Edbrook and Ailsa Lochhead have been working with the organisation since 2011 and are exhibiting the work which has been created as part of their Creative Initiative award.
Augustus Veinoglou is this year's ESW/eca Bursary recipient and here he is presenting part one of a two part project which examines the relationship between the old ESW building and the new.
Kuba Bakowski has completed the first RSA International Residency, hosted by Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, and is presenting a new work There and Back Again, a playful investigation of the hidden spaces of the new Sculpture Centre.

There and Back Again: Kuba Bakowski
Image: Courtesy of the artist

RSA resident Kuba Bakowski's site-specific installation There and Back Again explores the inaccessible spaces of the new Bill Scott Sculpture Centre. Modified Piko HO model trains equipped with miniature wi-fi cameras travel on tracks installed between the pipes and cables which run at a high level thorough out the spaces of the building. The live video transmission of the view from the front windows of the models can be watched on the several monitors, placed a few meters below. There are also several additional stationary wired cameras placed under the ceilings showing the action from the external perspective. The interaction with the architecture of the Sculpture Centre, the playing with scale and its kinetic nature form an artwork which is a synthesis of video, sculpture and installation.

NEW HAVEN act.1 Spolia: Augustus Veinoglou
A work challenging ideas about memory and our melancholic relationship with spaces, objects ...

Image: Marks, courtesy of the artist

Augustus Veinoglou, this year's ESW/eca Bursary recipient presents part one of his two part project. This phase alters and reconstructs the ad hoc solutions and d.i.y. infrastructure of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop's previous building and transposes them into the new Sculpture Centre. Hovering between installation and formal sculpture these objects form a tangible link between the new and the old.
