Utilising a model which is integral to Five Years’ ethos, the participants are working with creative autonomy in relation to a common shared structure, with each sub-project devised through individual members of Five Years freely interpreting a basic initial brief. The brief invited each participant to choose a collaborative partner working in a field of the arts outside the broad parameters of contemporary fine art practice, and to work through a process of dialogue toward a project outside Five Years’ gallery space.
The outcomes of the projects range from events and performances to installed exhibitions, and in accordance their sites will vary. At the core of the project however is a collective publication, which will formally draw together Fragments’ disparate, wandering dialogues and encounters.
From 4th – 26th May Five Years’ gallery will host an exploratory, editorial presentation of the project as a whole, within the context of a group exhibition juxtaposing work by all 10 participants. A series of public discussions, presentations and performances will be programmed throughout the show. Information about the satellite projects will also be available at the gallery.
