Event Details

Imitator Being Made features three characters, ‘The Made’, ‘The Being’ and ‘The Imitator’. In its discussion of the relationships between these three characters, the work considers issues of power, collaboration and dependency. How much do authenticity and originality really matter? Don’t we all learn through copying others?

About the exhibition:
Hedwig Houben, Others and I
Dutch artist Hedwig Houben makes sculptural works that are mediated by film, performance and language. She foregrounds the acts of making and talking about art in awkward performances that reveal to the viewer the questions she asks of her own activity and process. Houben has described her work as attempting to understand how the process of making works ‘relates to the structures that we create together within society – rules, assumptions, expectations.’

This, her first solo exhibition in the UK, will include a number of key works made over the last five years, encompassing film, performance, sculpture and text.

Hedwig Houben’s exhibition is supported by the Mondriaan Fund and Outset.

Spike Island

Spike Island is an international centre for the development of contemporary art and design. Based in Bristol, UK, it is home to a gallery, café and working space for artists, designers and creative businesses. A vibrant hub for production, presentation and debate, we offer opportunities for audiences to engage directly with creative practices through participation and discussion.

Our vision is to position art as central to society, which we do in two ways: by offering a high quality, challenging programme of exhibitions and events; and by fostering a dynamic and critically engaged community of artists and designers. Spike Island collaborates with local and regional partners as well as with international institutions, museums and universities.
