THE HOLDEN GALLERY
Manchester Metropolitan University
Grosvenor Street, Manchester


SEESAW is an exhibition marking a collaborative programme of exchange between artists in Hannover and Manchester.

German artists Ulrike Schoeller, Gotz Bergman and Klaus Fleige established the Atelier Grammophon in Hannover and continue to work there as artists and curators. For SEESAW they have invited a selection of fellow German and Icelandic artists with a connection to the Atelier to show in the Holden Gallery at Manchester Metropolitan University.

The nine artists will present video works, drawings, photographs, sculptural installations and text based work. This exhibition brings much of the work together for the first time and presents an overview of contemporary working practices in Hannover and Central Germany.

Atelier Grammophon functions as a studio and an exhibition space; presenting art, concerts, readings and lectures. Since 1998 the artist-curators have initiated exhibitions and events with national and international artists. Most recently they have invited artists to develop and present experimental work in the ATLAS programme of exhibitions, and CARTAS, a book project [established by Schoeller, Bergman with Reiner Stolla] uses artist drawings and editions to explore new ways of producing and circulating work.

SEESAW is the first leg of an exchange with Manchester-based artists Brass Art that will see Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican exhibiting at Atelier Grammophon in Spring 2003.

The Holden Gallery runs an artistic programme directed by Professor Pavel Buchler, MMU.

SEESAW is supported by Manchester Metropolitan University and Brass Art. Brass Art are supported with an Artistsí Franchise Award from the North West Arts Board.
