Take Over is SAW’s annual programme showcasing talented emerging artists, as part of our commitment to support and nurture up and coming talent. Join us for three exciting unique exhibitions.
1 – 15 February
SAW Reflects: 14 February 6:30 – 8:30pm
Iris Ollier presents sculptural objects which play with normal visual perception. Objects of wonder and novelty create abnormal optical effects, which emphasise that movement is not a decision made by the mind, but emerges from and is the natural sequel to vision.
Light Hands (with Lighter Hearts)
Inés Buchanan & Alice Wong
22 February – 8 March
SAW Reflects: 28 February 6:30 – 8:30pm
Through print and tactile sculptures, Light Hands (with Lighter Hearts) compares personal possessions and museum objects, questioning the systems which prescribe value to each of them.
Beatrice Dale & Jim Spendlove
15 – 29 March
SAW Reflects: 28 March 6:30 – 8:30pm
‘Foraged codes’ is a visual representation of the available forage for Newcastle’s urban honeybees over a season. This collaboration project couples the scientific research process with digitally coloured illustration to create a visual conversation piece about how we share our urban spaces with pollinators.
Exhibitions are open Tuesday – Thursday 11am – 4pm & Saturdays 1 – 4pm
SAW Reflects events are informal discussions to dig deeper into exhibitions. We’ll share food together and chat with artists about their work. All welcome.
