The Sculpture Network Brunch 2014

Miles and Dacombe were invited to show InTenz, their mobile sculpture kit as part of the Kettering sculpture network exhibition, part of the 5th International Celebration of Contemporary Sculpture. The sculpture network international New Year Brunch, was an opportunity for sculptors to connect at the same time, in different 14 different venues throughout  Europe. The Brunch took place at 181 Stamford Road Kettering artspace Susan Williams Sunday 19th January 2014 between 10.00 - 2.00. 

The event was a wonderfully warm, lively, joyful event beautifully hosted by artist Susan Williams with homemade soup, scrumptious cakes, wine and hot drinks. 

In Susan's studio there were laptops and computers live-streaming the event, films and slideshows showing work from the artists in Kettering alongside international artists. 

The sculptures were installed in the garden, summerhouse and outbuilding and after weeks of rain and a 

very cold, grey installation day, the sun put in an appearance enabling visitors to walk and explore under vivid blue sky.

 The Sculptures

InTenz by Miles and Dacombe
a piece made during our Fingerprints on the Pew project
Inspired by St Peter and St Andrews Church
Beanfield Avenue, Corby

exploring the space from the inside

 it was great to see the work in an urban garden setting

Kasia Williams thought that being inside InTenz was like being inside her mind with thoughts converging and creating new or different viewpoints.

The sculpture is made of three identical tent-like structures that can be configured in a multitude of arrangements. The three tent-like express spaces that reference action, communication and rest and were a product of our experience and conversations surrounding the regeneration taking place in Corby at the time

The work is easily transportable and can be hired, with the artists for events, workshops or projects. If you are thinking about staging an exploration of space, landscape, architecture, shelter in an interior or exterior setting please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dear Artists and Supporters of the Arts,
Many thanks for attending sculpture network’s New Year’s Brunch 2014 last Sunday.
About 2,500 artists, art mediators and friends of the arts gathered simultaneously at 45 different venues, in 14 countries. This has by far exceeded our greatest expectations and we are extremely pleased that there is such an enormous interest and solidarity for sculpture. 

We produced a short video to mark our 10th anniversary this year, which you can watch here 
Images and videos from all venues in Europe will soon be uploaded here
Sculpture Network hope to meet you again, at any of our events around Europe during this coming year and we wish you all the best for 2014!
Kind regards,
