Transitional States 1st – 27th February 2018


Transitional States: Hormones at the Crossroads of Art and Science

What effect do hormone uses have on emotions, sensations, sexual expression and desire? This video art exhibition presents the work of 14 artists and collectives who explore the immense role hormones have on our everyday life. The works raise crucial questions about how society influences and regulates gender identity, and capture broader explorations of sexuality and gender fluidity. The featured artists take viewers on sometimes intensely personal journeys and demonstrate the liberation they have experienced through the use of hormones. Other works look at the medicalisation of women’s bodies in relation to birth control, menopause and ageing, and offer an important commentary on how we use hormones to improve and sometimes constrain our lives in ways we rarely consider.

Artists, performers, writers and activists have employed various techniques to produce these works, including 3D animation, stop motion, and infrared video, and use a range of formats such as performance for the camera, music video, documentary, TV show and online feeds.

An international jury selected participants following a world-wide open call and the exhibition features 14 established and emerging artists from countries including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Denmark, Brazil, Columbia, France, Italy, Japan, Sweden, UK, Uruguay and the USA.

The artists are: Camila Levy Daniel, Leyla de la Hoz and Pedro Giacomolli; Gérard Chauvin and Lanah Shaï; Fox and Owl; Holly Slingsby; Jennie Pedley; Juliet Jacques and Ker Wallwork; Marianna Simnett; Marne Lucas aka CuntemporaryArtist; Mary Maggic, Mango Chijo Tree and The Jayder; Orlando Myxx; Raju Rage;Sarah Homewood; SenzaFissaDimora Teatro; Zaya Barroso.

Transitional States has been developed and is led by Dr Chiara Beccalossi (University of Lincoln) with support from the Wellcome Trust. The video art exhibition is curated by Giulia Casalini and Diana Georgiou (Arts Feminism Queer).

The exhibition will be shown at the Project Space Plus Gallery in Lincoln, before continuing to the Peltz Gallery in London and touring Europe, where it will be hosted at the CCCB (Centre Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain and in Bologna, Italy.

Mardi Gras Requiem

An online auction of artworks to raise money for Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.


Exhibition of artworks at Project Space Plus, Lincoln 19-28th July 2017, Monday to Friday 10am-4pm.

Lincolnshire based artist and University of Lincoln lecturer, Andrew Bracey has organised an online auction of over 70 artworks to raise money for Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital. The auction has been organised by Andrew in memory of his father, John Bracey who died of a heart and lung related illness last year. The artists involved have all generously donated their work for free and all money raised will go to the charity. An exhibition at Project Space Plus Gallery, at the University of Lincoln will be on from 19-28th July, 10-4pm on weekdays, so people can view the works in person, with the final day of bidding of the online auction on 28th July.

A number of Lincolnshire-based artists are in the auction, including Phil Cosker, Danica Maier, Ashley Gallant and Nick Simpson. Other artists include Turner Prize nominee Fiona Banner, Northern Art Prize winners Pavel Büchler and Leo Fitzmaurice, Marmite Painting Prize winner Iain Andrews and Contemporary British Painting Prize winner Cathy Lomax, as well as the man who inspired the auction, John Bracey.

The unusual title for the auction, Mardi Gras Requiem, recalls John’s love of trad Jazz and his favourite piece of music, Verdi’s Requiem. The mixture of the celebration of Mardi Gras and the act of remembrance in the requiem seemed fitting.

Andrew said “ my aim for the auction is to raise a lot of money for Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, who are one of the foremost UK hospitals delivering heart and chest care and research. The added bonus is that by donating to this worthy cause everyone who makes the highest bid will get to have a new and fantastic artwork on their wall.”

He talks of how, “my dad always liked to be a bit different and is remembered fondly as a creative gardener and designer, maker of a 15 ft bottle house, real ale enthusiast, architect, thinking po (positively), woodworker and for having a unique sense of humour.”

To make a bid people should visit the website to view the artworks.

Exhibition of artworks at Project Space Plus, Architecture & Design Building – East Wing, University of Lincoln, Brayford Pool, Lincoln, LN6 7TS19-28th July 2017, Monday to Friday 10am-4pm.For more details about Project Space Plus please visit:
