Ambulation, 14 August 10 October 2010, Plymouth Art Centre

Ambulation is an exhibition at Plymouth Art Centre curated by Mark James, one half of James & Jones.

Ambulation is an exhibition, series of events, films and new commissions by artists and architects who use walking as an artistic practice. Investigate your everyday through the act of walking and explore the historical contexts of the city and its symbols. The series of newly commissioned walks explore the city through its histories and unseen, distinctive anomalies. The intention of Ambulation is that the exhibition of ephemera, commissions and documentation, along with the projects; participatory and performative, will help to develop a conversation on walking and the city over the period of the exhibition. This will be encouraged through discussion with the artists and architects involved in the projects.

Artists: ad:HOC, Architecture Centre Devon and Cornwall, Bridgette Ashton, Tim Brennan, Simon Persighetti and Tony Whitehead, Phil Smith and Polly Macpherson, The Traveling School of Art

Curated by Mark A James as part of the Plymouth Visual Arts Consortium Associate Scheme.

About Ben Jones

I am an artist and curator, interested mainly in web-based work, video, drawing and animation. I have exhibited locally, nationally and internationally gaining commissions as well as working with communities and in schools on projects. I have worked for a variety of different organisations from an artist run studio and gallery to a large contemporary gallery in a number of different roles. My practice deals with how the reality we live in is constructed by media, where there are many different beliefs, which can be accepted, rejected or modified. I am interested in the disintegration of traditional social discussion and debate, due to media saturation, and how it now manifest’s itself in many new and technological ways.
