Latest artist residency is coming to an end...
Deborah Bower, Mat Fleming and Harriet Plewis (Bower Fleming Plewis) are north east based artists who have most recently took residence at the ISIS Arts studio. However unfortunately their time has come to an end, although we have loved having them here at ISIS.
Bower Fleming Plewis have been spending their time researching and exploring empty and abandoned spaces in the Newcastle area with a view to employing these spaces as temporary ‘sets’ for their new collaborative film work.
At a time when space is perhaps no longer at such a premium but remains a hotly contested issue, Bower Fleming Plewis have begun to map and survey property that is currently vacant or out of use.
The research was developed through moving image, manipulating footage of the empty spaces and compositing them together to make new fictional spaces. The trio aimed to explore what can be performed/enacted in these unoccupied spaces and what cannot: which gestures and narratives can fill these voids.
