Holiday In

Artvehicle 23/Recommended

14th September 2007 — 4th November 2007

Holiday in is the product of six three-month residencies in three venues; 2 in London, 2 in Marseilles and 2 in Vilnius. Each of the three venues hosted artists from the two other towns. The six artists were asked to spend the time reflecting and negotiating around the idea of being on holiday; of the form of the residency; of production in a new context. On returning home, each artist was asked to conceive work for a group exhibition at each of the three host venues. At Gasworks the artists present reflections on the residency. A mixed bag of a show, highlights the geographical and logistical difficulties of the project as well as the spectrum of possibilities that such a premise might offer; the best bits being Lithuanian artist Darius Miksys' decision to stop being an artist for three months in London and to learn how to play cricket, French artist Nicolas Simarik's astro-turf shadow throughout the gallery and London-based Flavia Müller Medeiros' project around in a Belarusian university which relocated to Vilnius after its forced closure by the Belarusian government in 2005.
