The Hang Gang is a collective of artists including Matthew Hearn, Sebastian Trend and Thomas Whittle. Interested in ideas of the poster and the printed / reproduced image, RIP presents a series of new works which draw together layers and elements of stolen, borrowed and plundered imagery. Using photocopies, traditional collage techniques and ultimately digital software to compose and layer content, RIP principally manifests as a series of posters which will both combine within the exhibition and be spread individually across the city. Remixing, and reworking source imagery through existing and newly formed conjunctions, these multi-dimensional elements will be further reconfigured in a series of assemblages within the gallery at 36 Lime Street.

The work presented as part of RIP has been developed through a recent aa2a (artists access to art colleges) residency at Northumbria University.

Ouseburn Festival 2012

The sun came out…finally for the Ouseburn Festival on Sunday 22nd with visitors to the gallery topping 450!

























Monica Rocca, visiting artist from Milan and part of the Inchio`stro team led a drop in screen print workshop with visitors to the Gallery @ 36 Lime street.

The gallery became a micro-studio for two days, during which Inchio`stro and Theresa Easton worked together developing ideas and a creating new works in progress to add to the exhibition @ 36 Lime Street.

When space around the table got quite busy, help was on hand for visitors to create their own unique stamped book.

Next weekend, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th 12-5pm the gallery will once again become a place for exchange and collaboration.  Inchio`stro plan to arrive with selected words for visitors to  choose for the Inchio`stro team to transform into an illustrated story created in the gallery  in collaboration with printmaking from Theresa Easton.

Visitors are welcome to drop by between 12-5pm Saturday 28th July & Sunday 29th July.

Inchiostro’ will be creating an exhibition of work in 36 Lime Streets Gallery in July 2012, with the focus on collaboration and exchange, a key to the production and creation of new work.  Connecting with Milan based Inchiostro, Theresa Easton , a studio member at 36 Lime street, is interested in building on past collaborations with the artist Marina Chiocchetta.  A body of paper based worksare currently evolving between the two parties, expanding into a visual dialogue and narrative.

The artists are interested in transforming the Gallery space into a working studio with work-in-progress ideas being transformed into finished pieces during the Ouseburn Festival 2012,  using a portable printing press and drawing equipment.  Visitors to the gallery would be able to observe the collaboration process at first hand.
