Reframed into Oblivion, Walter Scott

Reframed into Oblivion at Naughton Gallery, Belfast

The first UK and Ireland solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Walter Scott, Reframed into Oblivion opened at Belfast’s Naughton Gallery at the end of August, and is on display throughout all of September. Perhaps best known for his comic series Wendy, Scott’s work spans a multitude of disciplines including comics, drawing, video, sculpture and performance, all “informed by millennial ennui and multi-channelled thinking”. His work on display here, in particular, showcases his playful meta-referentiality and semi-autobiographical drawings in which he frequently appears alongside and interacts with his creations. Similarly self-referential with form, objects often appear twice in the exhibition - first as sculptures and also within drawings - and many of Scott’s drawings depict scenes set within a gallery environment. Reframed into Oblivion reflects Walter Scott’s driving interests in representation, narrative and identity, all presented through the satirical lens that defines his work.

Reframed into Oblivion is showing at Naughton Gallery until 2nd October

Wild Relatives, Jumana Manna, 2018

Forest: Wake This Ground at Arnolfini, Bristol

Any art-lovers who enjoyed Barbican’s recent exhibition Our Time on Earth should make time for Forest: Wake This Ground, showing at Bristol’ Arnolfini until 2nd October. This major group exhibition spotlights environmentally-focused artists, writers, filmmakers and composers from around the world, focusing on “discovering the forest’s ancient rhythms” through an exploration of myths, stories and folktales. Given Forest’s ecological themes, the works themselves have been constructed with sustainability in mind, with resources being recycled and repurposed for their creation. The final weekend of the show will be marked by Sam Williams and Roly Porter’s ongoing work Salvage Rhythms, which utilises live performance, sound, text, film and collage to illustrate the interconnectedness of all organisms living on earth. The exhibition also features work by Rodrigo Arteaga, Mark Garry, Alma Heikkilä, Eva Jospin, Jumana Manna, Zakiya Mckenzie, David Nash, Maria Nepomuceno, John Newling, Rose Nguyen, Ben Rivers, Ai Weiwei, and Hildegard Westerkamp.

Forest: Wake This Ground is showing at Arnolfini until 2nd October

Self-portrait, New York, Vivian Mier, 1953

Vivian Maier: Anthology at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes

While it has been open since June, this month stands as the last chance to visit MK Gallery’s retrospective of photographer Vivian Maier before it closes on 25th September. While her archive of photographs was only discovered when her belongings went to auction in 2007, Maier has posthumously been recognised as one of the most significant figures working within street photography. Alongside her 40 years working as a nanny in New York and Chicago she took hundreds of thousands of photographs, capturing figures from all walks of life and various economic backgrounds. Through her capturing of street scenes, stores fronts and commuters, Maier’s photography is imbued with a sense of personhood, creating evocative snapshots of community, simultaneously eclectic and interwoven. Her reclusive nature hid a “craft and vision [which] far surpassed that of any part-time hobbyist”, and her use of shadow, reflection and aerial shots is unparalleled, particularly within her experimental self-portraits. Anthology features over 150 black-and-white and colour photographs by Maier - click here for our deeper look into the life and work of Vivian Maier.

Mother’s #57, Ishiuchi Myako

Ishiuchi Miyako at Stills, Edinburgh

Showing at Stills Centre for Photography in Edinburgh, this exhibition of work by Ishiuchi Miyako marks the first ever solo exhibition in Scotland by the celebrated Japanese post-war photographer. Miyako’s career began shooting the streets of her hometown Yokosuka, documenting its transformation across the post-war period into a large American naval base. These early photographs are celebrated for Miyako’s blending of the personal and subjective with the societal and political, depicting the US occupation of over a decade following the war through her own eyes. The exhibition also contains works from her series Mother’s, shown at the 2005 Venice Biennale, in which she documented the possessions of her mother to come to terms with their relationship following her death. Inspired by this, Ishuichi Miyako went on to create perhaps her most sobering work, documenting the everyday objects which belonged to the victims of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. The exhibitions comes as part of Stills’ ongoing commitment to spotlighting internationally-renowned artists whose work has not previously been displayed in Scotland.

Ishiuchi Miyako is showing at Stills until 8th October

Any art-lovers who enjoyed Barbican’s recent exhibition Our Time on Earth should make time for Forest: Wake This Ground, showing at Bristol’ Arnolfini until 2nd October. This major group exhibition spotlights environmentally-focused artists, writers, filmmakers and composers from around the world, focusing on “discovering the forest’s ancient rhythms” through an exploration of myths, stories and folktales. Given Forest’s ecological themes, the works themselves have been constructed with sustainability in mind, with resources being recycled and repurposed for their creation. The final weekend of the show will be marked by Sam Williams and Roly Porter’s ongoing work Salvage Rhythms, which utilises live performance, sound, text, film and collage to illustrate the interconnectedness of all organisms living on earth. The exhibition also features work by Rodrigo Arteaga, Mark Garry, Alma Heikkilä, Eva Jospin, Jumana Manna, Zakiya Mckenzie, David Nash, Maria Nepomuceno, John Newling, Rose Nguyen, Ben Rivers, Ai Weiwei, and Hildegard Westerkamp.

Self-portrait, New York, Vivian Mier, 1953

Vivian Maier: Anthology at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes

While it has been open since June, this month stands as the last chance to visit MK Gallery’s retrospective of photographer Vivian Maier before it closes on 25th September. While her archive of photographs was only discovered when her belongings went to auction in 2007, Maier has posthumously been recognised as one of the most significant figures working within street photography. Alongside her 40 years working as a nanny in New York and Chicago she took hundreds of thousands of photographs, capturing figures from all walks of life and various economic backgrounds. Through her capturing of street scenes, stores fronts and commuters, Maier’s photography is imbued with a sense of personhood, creating evocative snapshots of community, simultaneously eclectic and interwoven. Her reclusive nature hid a “craft and vision [which] far surpassed that of any part-time hobbyist”, and her use of shadow, reflection and aerial shots is unparalleled, particularly within her experimental self-portraits. Anthology features over 150 black-and-white and colour photographs by Maier - click here for our deeper look into the life and work of Vivian Maier.

Mother’s #57, Ishiuchi Myako

Ishiuchi Miyako at Stills, Edinburgh

Showing at Stills Centre for Photography in Edinburgh, this exhibition of work by Ishiuchi Miyako marks the first ever solo exhibition in Scotland by the celebrated Japanese post-war photographer. Miyako’s career began shooting the streets of her hometown Yokosuka, documenting its transformation across the post-war period into a large American naval base. These early photographs are celebrated for Miyako’s blending of the personal and subjective with the societal and political, depicting the US occupation of over a decade following the war through her own eyes. The exhibition also contains works from her series Mother’s, shown at the 2005 Venice Biennale, in which she documented the possessions of her mother to come to terms with their relationship following her death. Inspired by this, Ishuichi Miyako went on to create perhaps her most sobering work, documenting the everyday objects which belonged to the victims of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. The exhibitions comes as part of Stills’ ongoing commitment to spotlighting internationally-renowned artists whose work has not previously been displayed in Scotland.

Ishiuchi Miyako is showing at Stills until 8th October

Reframed into Oblivion, Walter Scott

Reframed into Oblivion at Naughton Gallery, Belfast

The first UK and Ireland solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Walter Scott, Reframed into Oblivion opened at Belfast’s Naughton Gallery at the end of August, and is on display throughout all of September. Perhaps best known for his comic series Wendy, Scott’s work spans a multitude of disciplines including comics, drawing, video, sculpture and performance, all “informed by millennial ennui and multi-channelled thinking”. His work on display here, in particular, showcases his playful meta-referentiality and semi-autobiographical drawings in which he frequently appears alongside and interacts with his creations. Similarly self-referential with form, objects often appear twice in the exhibition - first as sculptures and also within drawings - and many of Scott’s drawings depict scenes set within a gallery environment. Reframed into Oblivion reflects Walter Scott’s driving interests in representation, narrative and identity, all presented through the satirical lens that defines his work.

Reframed into Oblivion is showing at Naughton Gallery until 2nd October
