A group of postgraduate artists from the Master of Fine Art course at Northumbria University are taking over one of the spaces at Vane. They're throwing their work in the air and seeing how it lands.

The title ‘Slowing into Form’ comes from an article by Eyal Weizman, Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, entitled ‘The Political Plastic’, in which Weizman describes architecture and infrastructure as having an elasticity: that they are fundamentally responsive in nature. This is also reflected in the way that many visual artists respond to each other’s work: ideas and processes bouncing off each other, gradually evolving, growing, taking cohesive shape. This exhibition marks a point in that ongoing conversation between this group of artists, with work ranging across video, sculpture, photography, performance, sound and installation.
