By Jane Pickersgill – Gardner, Final year student
on the MFA Fine Art course at Wimbledon College of Arts
Expanding Systems at APT (Art in Perpetuity Trust) Gallery, SE8 4SA – until 18th February 2018
Expanding Systems is the third ‘artist’s shot’ in which a member of APT’s artistic community curates an annual exhibition at the gallery.
Chief curator for 2018 is Wimbledon alumni Brigitte Parusel, working with Hans Hancock and Patrick Morrissey , who founded Saturation Point, an ‘online editorial and curatorial project’ with several other alumni as contributors.
In Expanding Systems Brigitte asks whether ‘creative coding can become a new medium for contemporary artists’ and whether ‘painting and sculpture can influence the practice of artists who use creative coding? Her interest in coding and in the practices of artists whose work uses repetitious methods, or a systems-based approach, stems from personal experience of coding.
