Blank Media launch night for new exhibition Inside

Article published: Thursday, March 29th 2012

Manchester based not-for-profit arts collective Blank Media launches its latest exhibition with a preview event on Thursday 29 March. Ian Pennington finds out more.

The exhibition, entitled Inside, will showcase selected contemporary artists at the group’s BLANKSPACE gallery, which opened its doors in early 2011 at the old Easa building on Hulme Street. The collection of work will be adorning its walls for the calendar month from the preview launch evening on 29 March until 29 April.

It deals with themes of absence, loss, memory, fantasy and nostalgia as artists seek to interpret psychological reactions to the environment in which we live.

The artists involved are Claudia Borgna, Philip Cheater, Drop Collective, Gill Greenhough, Rosie Leventon, David Ogle, Emily Rubner, Liz West and Chris Wright.

One of the artists, David Ogle, explains his view of the exhibition: “For me, Inside questions the nature of experiencing an object in space, a primary concern of my practice and one that must be considered when using light as an artistic medium. Light rests on the border between the material and the immaterial, visually perceptible but without physical mass, a volume of light captured in space, an altered perception of materiality and permanence.”

Blank Media will invite Liz West back for her first major solo exhibition in July, entitled Chroma.
