Stop bugging me: frame 1

Gillam, Adam (2015) Stop bugging me: frame 1. Stop bugging me. .

Abstract

The exhibition Stop Bugging Me was a series of solo shows punctuated by a number of events, happenings, performances and hauntings. The title and framework for the research initially draws on Peter Ackroyd’s “The English Ghost” (2011) where he suggests “ The commonplace phrase “stop bugging me”, can perhaps be translated as “stop haunting me”.” “Stop bugging me” presented the work of three artists; Adam Gillam, Oona Grimes, and Jo Addison, over three months. Each solo show punctuated or “bugged” by the work(s) of the next exhibiting artist, providing a forum for testing new works, methodologies and in seeking new insights. Evolving and mutating over time, “Stop bugging me” provided an interlinking and meandering snapshot of three artists’ who share a solitary practice but who revel in collaboration and exchange. The research developed through a series of regular studio visits and discussion between the artists involved through 2014 – 2015, with the aim to illuminate common shared thematics and methodologies and to explore these in the making of a series of exhibitions and public programmed events. The research sought to explore and interrogate subtle territories between solo show, group show and public events programme through each artist presenting a solo show alongside specifically invited individuals to contribute to an evening public event.
