Looking for something to do this Friday evening? Well look no further, Supercollider are holding a preview night for a new exhibition coming to Blackpool until the 15th June. Jim Howieson’s One Man Show.

Howieson, who was recently selected to take part in the Testing Ground: Masterclass project organised by Doug Fishbone and Zabludowicz Collection, uses the exhibition as an opportunity to create a monument as a celebration of his recent work in a cabinet makers workshop and his concurrent, unsuccessful attempts at aligning his practise with a conventional artist studio model. The monument is constructed out of items of superfluous studio material and is supported by a bespoke, revolving plinth, allowing the viewer to alter its orientation and affect.

Howieson’s work centres on reconfiguring day to day spaces and objects. Often making use of galleries, leisure centres and showrooms, Howieson draws on the environments around him to create the starting point for series of comedic visual and physical dramas between people and things to unfold.

Howieson lives and works in Sheffield and following his Blackpool exhibition he will embarking on further projects throughout the year including a solo presentation at Eastside Projects, Birmingham in June and a group show at the Salzamt, Linz in November.

Supercollider’s 2013 programme will see a series of exhibitions take place both at 59 Cookson Street and at FYCreatives Gallery on Church Street. Made possible thanks to the support of Blackpool Council’s Culture Shops initiative which allows artists to exhibit their work in empty shop units across the town centre (and more recently Central Drive). The project has also been supported through funding from the Arts Lottery and Department for Communities and Local Government ‘Town Centres’ initiative and support from the Arts Council England’s Empty Shops initiative.

The One Man Show preview takes place Friday 17 May 2013 from 7pm to 9pm at Supercollider, 59 Cookson St, Blackpool. You can also view the exhibition on Wednesday to Saturday between 12pm and 5pm or by appointment until the 15 June 2013.
