The Path of Least Resistance2nd March 2018
Location: Access Space, Sheffield. http://access-space.org/portfolio/
Making new work for both Access Space sites, Stephen Carley will be developing existing creative frameworks using large scale photograms, double exposed 35mm film, installation and audio visual performance. The Path Of Least Resistance extends the artists preoccupation with ‘landscape’ by incorporating aspects of the ‘dérive’ or drift, one of psychogeography’s core principles – letting yourself be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters you find there, acknowledging and even celebrating the things we overlook, discard or even abandon.
This dialogue between the artist, the city, the landscape and the materials is fundamentally process led and Carley will be working with materials found ‘on site’ to instigate some of this process, as well as making work ‘in response’.
