'ReMix', Bury Sculpture Centre
6 September 2014- 3 January 2015
ReMix brings together six artists, three from China and three from the UK. The basis of their relationship is a curatorial exchange that has existed between Platform China, the artist run space in Beijing, and the British curator David Thorp. An exchange that has been in existence since 2007 and which has resulted in six Western artists holding solo exhibitions at Platform China and several reciprocal exhibitions by artists associated with Platform China in the UK.
For this exhibition at the Bury Sculpture Centre three of the UK based artists, David Blandy who showed at Platform China in 2009, A K Dolven in 2010 and Richard Wilson in 2007 revisit that relationship reprising works that were shown at Platform China but remixing them for a new time, place and context specifically for this exhibition.
