Neville Gabie, of Stroud, Berkshire, MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, who has worked in sculpture and photography, including projects on the changes of specific places including Middlesbrough FC's former stadium Ayresome Park, now a Wimpey housing estate, and for a Tate Liverpool residence Up In The Air, working in a condemned Liverpool tower block part of the eight days a week program.
Gabie uses domestic furniture as a vehicle by which to explore the city. Together these works describe Gabie’s continuing interest in urban landscape, issues of displacement, and cultural value, his penguin book of improvised goalpost from around the world.
Padriag Timoney was born in Derry, Northern
Ireland, in 1968. He studied at St Martins School of Art and Goldsmiths
College London. Timoney uses a variety of media and materials in his
work, including photographs, paintings and installation. Timoney¹s
work, informed by the way meaning is constructed in and through art,
juxtaposes concepts and languages to create layers of signification
which viewers are invited to disentangle. Looking at his work is,
therefore, not a passive act but an examination of our own linguistic
and visual skills. Recent exhibitions include The Hunter Became the
Hunted - Laure Gennillard London (1998), and London Calling at The
British School in Rome (1998) and The British Art Show 5 (2000). Padraig
Timoney lives and works in Liverpool.
