A.P.T One Hour

Transsensorial explorations of a place in time

A group exhibition (artists collectively known as A.P.T.) associated talks and workshops curated by Graham Keddie.

Fermyn Woods Water Tower, Brigstock. Sudborough Green Lodges and associated surroundings, Northants.

6, 7 and 8 September 2013 www.aplaceintime.info


Over the weekend of 6-8 September, One Hour, a group exhibition curated by Graham Keddie, brings conceptual and contemporary art out of the confines of the gallery and into the depths of rural Northamptonshire. With notions relating to place and time being a central focus, the starting point for each exhibiting artist was to spend one hour in a specific location and make new work in response to this. Binding the diverse nature of the exhibited works together is the conceptual neatness of their titles.



Each artist has selected their “one hour” according to the 24-hour clock, so that the hours, minutes and seconds, mirror the date in the format of DD/MM/YY. However, no such limiting factors are imposed on the selection of locations, so places such as home, an independent record store, a lake, a foot tunnel and other internal and external environments all come under the creative scrutiny of the exhibiting artists.



Exhibiting A.P.T. artist researchers: Graham Keddie ARBS, Spencer Graham, Susan Bonvin & Andrew Eden, Gary Price-Hunt, Professor Sebastian Blackie, Desmond Brett ARBS, Gail Dickerson, Christina ten Bosch, Tom Hackett, James Steventon, Ben Baal-Bowdler, Stephen Elvidge, Jack Eden, Susan Williams ARBS, Helen Frankland and Michelle Keegan.
