Arts Council England

Friday, 09 July 2010 01:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

2010- 2011

Arts Council England commissioned Axis to curate an exhibition on the first floor of its national office at Great Peter Street in London. Using the Axis website Arts Council England staff selected nine works which were installed in July 2010.

Axis aimed to reflect the diversity of work being produced around the country and selected 9 artists from their online arts directory.

Arts Council staff were asked to curate the exhibition by selecting artworks from each of the nine English regions. The selected was installed for 17 months at the Council's Great Peter Street London headquarters.

The piece selected by Axis and the Arts Council staff, from Andrew Pepper, was Cut Column, a laser-cut 'drawing' based on an earlier holographic monoprint, “Centre Column”, produced in 1989 and now held in the Lauk Collection, Germany.

Exhibition dates: 9th July 2010 - December 2011

Artist David Sandum sent out a “Call for participation”  via his Twitter followers asking them to donate postcard sized work for an international exhibition he organised at the Moss Public Library, Norway.

260 artists from 24 countries took part.

Each artist sent an original 7″ x 5″ postcard.

Andrew Pepper submitted a laser-cut gestural 'drawn' image in two columns (second row, left image - image from the Moss Public Library Flickr account).

Postcard was sold for 200kr ($32.00) each and raised a total of $3,500.00.

All proceeds from the sale of the works on display were used to help with purchasing children’s books for the library, which had it’s funding cut during 2011.

Money raised form the exhibition helped to purchase 221 new children's books.

School of Art and Design, Bonington Building, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, UK.

Light Liquid - a hologram containing the three-dimensional shadow of liquid is formed to the exact shape of one of the flat- top buildings in a miniature townscape.

It rests on the roof, hardly visible from the 'street', except for a black glass 'line' around the edge of the building.

From above (the divine view held by curators and exhibition visitors), the roof is covered in a 'lake' made up of liquid shadows - volume-frozen at the moment the hologram was recorded.

The undulating image of the water 'hovers' just above the surface of the building, occupying the space between the architecture and the viewer - a 'no one' space.

As viewers move over and around the townscape, the liquid shadows undulate and shift, a kinetic 'covering' to the building activated by the point of view of an observer.

Roof spaces occupy a place of secrecy and seclusion in our city architecture. Gardens hidden from the reality of the street, spaces in which to be unobserved, locations for machinery which feed the buildings below. Things we shouldn't see.

Here a lake is elevated, without the physical restrictions of weight or volume. Something which shouldn't 'be' - a contradiction on so many levels - made possible only by the scale of the townscape and the placement of the holographic surface.


is the work of 8 artists, selected to make a series of (mini) major artworks and interventions within a minuature townscape located outside the Bonington Gallery at Nottingham Trent University.

Each week a new tiny monument, or intervention, changes the landscape of the ‘town’ by locating what are, in effect, monumental gestures within the miniature townscape.

Over the course of the exhibition the previous installation will remain and each week a new piece will add to the expanding series of ‘public-artworks’.

Artists include: Tag (Joseph Cerski and Bobby Sayer), Susie Cochrane, Rob Squirrell, Debra Swan, Gerard Williams, Andrew Pepper and Mark Lowe

The exhibition has been selected by artists: Danica Maier, Geoff Litherland, Ben Judd, Craig Fisher and Terry Shave.

Contemporary Sculpture: Transit

Thursday, 01 December 2011 00:00 Published in Group Exhibitions


Nottingham Trent University, School of Art and Design, Bonington Building, Nottingham

A group exhibition curated by Bobby Sayer.

Five artists were invited to submit a piece of work together with its transport packaging.

Each piece was shown, with its packing materials, in a vitrine located outside the Bonington Gallery.

Artists included:

Kim Bull
Craig Fisher
Rebecca Ounstead
Andrew Pepper
Oliver Tirre

Point Addition

Is one of a series of three pieces produced in the early 1980's in association with the Light Fantastic Gallery, London.

Point, Line and Plane, Addition explored the placement of lines and surfaces within a holographic volume and were sold to collections and exhibitions internationally, as an unlimited edition.

Once Light Fantastic closed no more pieces were produced and, by default, the series became limited.

Examples of the series can be found in the ZKM collection, Germany, and the Ross collection, UK. They are also held in a number of private collections.

Originally designed to be displayed like traditional graphics, framed on the wall, here, in Transit, the single plate of 25 points of light, rests on the original box it was stored in, and the one used to transport it to exhibitions. The red plastic 'runners' are protective strips normally located along the edges of the holographic plate when they are deliverd from the photographic supplier. Here they become part of the installation, arranged by the curator.

What is perhaps most interesting, apart from the relationship the work has with the other items in the vitrine, is that it is illuminated by the architectual lighting already installed in the display area. No special lighting was installed which was one of the stipulations of the piece being included in the exhibiton. The piece needed to be visible (and in this case illuminated by multiple lamps in the ceiling), using only the available light - on a par with all the other items in the exhibition. No special treatment, no excuses.

The result is a multiple referenced holographic image, displaying overlapping views of the original carefully arranged and engineered dots of light.

A piece modulated by the sensitivities of the curator, the physical proximity to other works in the exhibiton and to the existing achitectural lighting.
