NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine is a newly created installation of posters, garments and sculptures by artists’ collaborative group Poster Club. Poster Club are Anne-Marie Copestake, Charlie Hammond, Tom O’Sullivan, Nicolas Party, Ciara Phillips and Michael Stumpf.
NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine sees the artists create a new body of work stemming from their participation in Cooper Gallery’s major international project CURRENT in Shanghai in 2015.
Poster Club uses the medium of print as a site for experimental collaborative practice. Revisiting previous artworks and utterances is one of the key apparatus in Poster Club’s practice which they describe as a humorous 'institutional self-critique’. Through their use of elusive and humorously provocative slogans and utilisation of the ‘poster’ in its inherent multiple form, Poster Club’s works embody the plurality and complexity of contemporary cultural practice.
At the Preview of NEW Wheat, NEW Mud, NEW Machine there will be an artists' talk by Poster Club who will expand upon their practice and their participation in Phase One of Cooper Gallery's major international project CURRENT | Contemporary Art from Scotland in Shanghai in summer 2015.
