Kingston Art 2018: My Muybridge

I have been selected to exhibit as part of this exhibition Kingston Art 2018: My Muybridge.

Kingston Museum is proud to once again display the work of professional artists of Kingston, who are members of ASC Kingston, Fusion Art, KAOS and KINC. This year’s theme is My Muybridge, focusing on the Museum’s photographic collection of world renowned Kingston-born photographer and inventor Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904). Muybridge pioneered movement studies and motion picture projection and his work continues to have an immense, wide-ranging influence on modern culture.

The work I am exhibiting was inspired by Muybridge: E35,000 investigates and captures a single moment in time. Challenging identity and the self, and the roles we all play in life to conform with the social norms.

#March4Women

A day of inspiration – remembering 100 years on

I attended the March in preparation for the collaborative  installation Grace Before Meat One Day – One Event at The Stanley Picker Gallery – Lobby Exhibition

Wednesday 7th March 2018 – 11.00-7.00

An acknowledge and remembrance for all those that were imprisoned Roll of Honour for Suffrage 1905-1914

Careinternational/march4women

The march has four core goals:

  • equal rights for all genders
  • the right to speak out and be heard
  • the right to work free from harassment and abuse
  • the rights of girls all over the world to be able to “live, learn and earn with safety, dignity and respect
Thousands of people joined a march in central London calling for gender equality and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote.

The event, organised by the charity Care, was the sixth annual #March4Women, which is held each year on or near International Women’s Day on 8 March.

Grace Before Meat (2018) is a collaborative project between Louise Anderson and Jane Glennie. Having researched the archives of the Suffragette Movement and taken part in the Women’s March on Sunday 4th March, they will create an installation for International Women’s Day – Wednesday 7th March 2018 – at the Stanley Picker Gallery, Kingston University. The title is adopted from a satirical leaflet about the force feeding of Suffragette prisoners.

The work is a memorial to the men and women imprisoned in the name of suffrage while mulling over the present scenario for women. A Roll of Honour, compiled anecdotally circa 1950, documents 1094 people imprisoned in the period 1905–1914. Many names are partial, and it is highly likely that many more had already been forgotten. The names we do have will be assembled in situ and laid on a lawn, signifying the importance of remembrance in the centenary of The Representation of the People Act 1918. While the sound in the room will originate from the Women’s March on Sunday 4th March and will signify the steps still to be taken. The World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings tell us that gender parity is still over 200 years away. One hundred years on from the Act, the campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is #PressforProgress.

Louise Anderson works with installation and printmaking. Her work is germinated through archival research and a process of association between images, materials and artefacts. Recent work with the Eadweard Muybridge archive at the Kingston Museum resulted in an installation of cyanotypes and artefacts that replaced the artist into the position of the muse from Muybridge’s plate The Dancer: 187. Recent exhibitions include the Printmakers Council, the Mini Print Exhibition at the Morley Gallery, works placed in the V&A Collection and the National Original Print Exhibition, Bankside Gallery, London.

Jane Glennie works with installation and video poetry. Her work about ambivalent motherhood has been exhibited by ProCreate Project in London in 2017 and in M.A.M.A. issue #23.

She is currently working on a commission for National Poetry Month 2018 in New York.
