Surface In Between’ an event produced by The Side Effects of Urethane
As a continuation from the original event, which took place at the old Hartley’s Jam Factory in November 2001, 'A Surface in Between' presents the wide scope of art activity related to skate culture: drawing, painting, sculpture, printed-matter, photography and film. This year, with a new larger venue and extended dates, a stronger more refined showcase of international artwork will be in place. The exhibition is in two parts and is situated on two floors in a disused Victorian school in Hoxton, East London, that is to be converted into a contemporary loft apartment building as basis of the Arthouse project.
The artists have been selected to reflect the diversity and creativity within the skateboard community, which is in essence highly individual, motivated and productive across a broad cultural arena. Artists and skateboarders involved include: Toby Shuall, Marcus Oakley, Thomas Campbell, Jim Houser, Pete Fowler, Mark Foster, Will Sweeney, Dan Sparkes, James Jarvis, Toby Paterson, Nik Taylor, Ben Sansbury, Sam Ashley, Richard Sayer, Tobin Yelland, Marke Newton, Benjamin Deberdt, Tuukka Kaila, Oli Watson, Marc Johnson, Bobby Puleo, Chris Johannsen, Oliver Barton, Phil Frost, Kelly Ryan, Ged Wells, Richard Hart, Simon Evans and Tony Cox.
be a ramp installation that will be a “totally unique work of art
in itself” and is to fill the huge atrium space that runs the full
length of the building. Toby Shuall who thought up the concept says “There
is only one obstacle in the room surrounded by transitions so you can
approach it from any angle. The obstacle itself is made up from 18 banks
and resembles an octagon shape.”
in Between' is not intended as a definitive representation of what is
happening in an ever rapidly growing skateboarding culture, but rather
its better understood as representing a slice, from a very large, healthy,
home-baked and organic cake. Visitors to 'A Surface in Between' will encounter
a simultaneously happy, peaceful and anarchic presence.
