Things Unspoken by Anne Bevan and Andrea Roe
23 May–13 July 2012
Royal Society of British Sculptors, London
Things Unspoken presents new work by Edinburgh-based artists Anne Bevan and Andrea Roe at the Royal Society of British Sculptors, London. Both artists work across areas of human and animal behaviour, natural history and the environment, and their work evolves through processes of making and exploring that are associated with the scientists they often work alongside.
Anne Bevan was born in Orkney and now based in Edinburgh and Achiltibuie. Her work has often been concerned with water, the sea, and the idea of ‘making the invisible visible’. This has involved cross-disciplinary work with science, industry and creative practitioners. Current work involves research into wave and tidal energy, and a project with a marine bio-scientist looking at microscopic organisms in relation to ocean temperature change in the North Atlantic.
Andrea Roe is a visual artist based in Edinburgh. Her work examines the nature of human and animal biology, behaviour, communication and interaction within specific ecological contexts. Several residencies have introduced her to very different types of institutions (ranging from the Wellcome Trust to the Crichton Royal Hospital, to the National Museums of Scotland) where she has learned about and responded to research projects and collections.
The exhibition is curated by Jane Warrilow and has been supported by Edinburgh College of Art/University of Edinburgh, Visual Arts Awards: Edinburgh, Creative Scotland, Cape Farewell and Hope Scott Trust. Part of Cape Farewell’s Sea Change, a four-year programme of research and making across Scotland’s western and northern isles.
