Matt Calderwood - Paper Over the Cracks
15th March - 23rd June 2013
For his solo exhibition at BALTIC 39, his first in a public gallery in the UK, Grey Area artist Matt Calderwood will create a series of ambitious new sculptures which explore decaying and collapsing systems and the impact of environment and process on simple everyday materials. Made of fragile, degradable materials and interlocking elements, the works will be installed on the gallery?s roof terrace where they will weather and decompose, their delicate surfaces recording their exposure and deterioration. They will then be dismantled and reassembled over the course of the exhibition. Calderwood will also present a site-specific sculptural video installation showing new and recent films, each documenting a performance in which the artist experiments with balance, tension, instability and risk.

Nick Laessing - Æther
16th February - 7th March 2011
On occasion of the Nouveau Festival du Centre Pompidou German artist Christoph Keller proposes to revisit the banished concept of the Aether. The exhibition explores the question of how the inconceivable is conceived by both science and art, tracing possible interpretations between cosmology and consciousness. Espace 315 will display a specific spatial situation including a series of graphic and photographic works selected from the fields of science and art, as well as installations by contemporary artists. Furthermore an ongoing program of lectures, films and events are presented in a built-in amphitheatre throughout the festival. Artists requested include John Smith, Mariana Castillo Deball, Joachim Koester, Adolf Wölfli/ Daniel Baumann, David Maljkovic, Cyprien Gaillard, Nick Laessing. Graphic works by Étienne-Jules Marey, Thomas Ruff, Étienne Léopold Trouvelot, Gisèle Freund, Ugo Rondinone, René Descartes and many others.
