9 January – 18 February 2018
New Year New Resident! We are delighted to welcome Noel Clueit as the first of 2018’s Micro Residency Artists. Noel will spend the next six weeks at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, developing his work.
Noel Clueit’s practice is multifaceted, using a variety of mediums and materials in order to explore ideas around production, value and meaning. His work is informed through an awareness of how ideas are presented, how work in a given space can examine the complexities of how art is understood and read. Drawing on the history of art and design to use past narratives as a material for making work, he exploits the shifting meaning of cultural objects to both illustrate how context affects meaning and to understand where technology alters our experience of objects in the real world.
Noel Clueit (b.1984) lives and works in Manchester, UK. Recent activities include; NEON:The Charged Line, Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool; On The Side – Workplace Gallery, Gateshead, the solo exhibition : / at Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool and a newly commissioned work for The Artist Tea Towel Company. Clueit has recently participated in residencies with Airspace Gallery (2015) and Wysing Arts Centre (2016).
