AirSpace Curriculum - The Artists' Talks

David Bethell

28th February, 2019 12:15-1:15

Film Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 2EF

David Bethell is a UK artist based in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire.

The work is often objects that representation working machines. The objects exists in neither the past nor the present, they exist within both. There is a slip between the past and the present but not committing to neither. Narratives are formed from the history and the topology of a space and the changing aspect of the material.

As the object or constructed object can not commit to its original form it becomes the making of the journey, by the ware n tear of the landscape and the act of the artist. The ‘workings of the material’. There is a sense of futility to the artist and material. There are questions on the reliance of the crude and crafted technology and endurance of the artist. With this notion of change something can be viewed differently, something can have a sense of becoming, becoming something beyond its own expectations. A testing of our ambitions and imagination are measured against the limitations of a space and material, often resulting in failed attempts and sense of disbelief, with odd chance of success and hope thrown in.



AirSpace Curriculum is a programme of events, talks and workshops organised by AirSpace Gallery in partnership with Staffordshire University which recognises and responds to the need for continuing professional development for artists in Stoke-on-Trent and the West Midlands.

The first part of the Curriculum offer is a series of artists’ talks, organised by Staffordshire University and usually available solely to students on their Fine Art BA Course, but now being opened up for any interested artists and members of the public to attend. This offer will be augmented by additional artist talks at AirSpace Gallery.

The programme offers an insight into the professional practices of a number of interesting and varied professional artists and arts practitioners.

Please note - For talks held at Staffordshire University, booking is essential for non-University staff/students. For booking information please visit the Curriculum page at www.airspacegallery.org
