occupant #4 Andy Lacey

'Andy's arse and its constituant parts'

New work by Andy Lacey from his time at Grey Area. Andy's practice is interested in what it means to infesct new space with internal patterns of speech.

Grey Area presents 'occupant', a series of week long artist residencies within the gallery which will each culminate in the making of new work and a public event. Andy is a Brighton boy and currently associate artist at LUX moving image.

The residencies will take place across several weeks in January-March 2012, providing selected artists/groups with the opportunity to occupy the gallery from Monday-Sunday of that same week. Grey Area will provide each occupant with the staples of space, tools, a timescale, and a set of keys.

The parameters for what might constitute an outcome for the occupant residencies are flexible and permeable. As much a process of the studio as of the gallery. Participants are invited to consider how their project may or may not be constituted as an object, subject, event, or non-event.

As each residency will have different times and degrees of public engagement, additional information on residency events will follow with little warning as the week of an occupant takes shape. Grey Area was originally founded as a dual studio/gallery, and so occupant marks a return of sorts – to concurrent processes of making and display. To occupy is to seize - a week, a residency, an exhibition. Or all 3.
