‘Existence Experiments’

Stu Herring

24 April – 17 May 2014

In ‘Existence Experiments’, Stu Herring exhibits the preparatory drawings of his recent performances as well as drawings of unrealised or imaginary projects. Herring creates work to expand his personal understanding of existence and society, he undertakes ceremonial tasks designed to alter his perceived reality and challenge that of the viewer’s perception of ‘normal’ or ‘ordinary’ behaviour.


Late Shows 2014 

For the Late Shows 2014 Vane is pleased to be hosting Stu Herring’s latest performance, ‘Brick vessel’. Coinciding with the last day of his exhibition, on The Late Shows evening, Saturday 17 May, Herring will be building a circular wall around himself until he is entirely cut off from the audience. ‘Brick vessel’ is the latest of Herring’s works to explore ritualistic acts his ongoing investigation of notions of personal freedom.

 ‘Brick vessel’ is presented as part of The Late Shows 2014.
