Nicolas Party, Elephants at the Woodmill (12 February 2011 – 27 February 2011)

Nicolas Party presents a new co-operative exhibition in collaboration with assembled Woodmill studio artists, as a culmination to his New Work Scotland residency at Studio Voltaire. The Swiss-artist toys with conceits of aesthetic judgement and artifice, as he constructs a special display to both accommodate and challenge the hosted sculptures.

Featuring works by: Alastair Frazer, Angharad Williams, Anna Baker, Ben Burgis, Blue Curry, Darren Harvey-Regan, Flore Nove-Josserand, Iva Kontic, Joey Holder, Ksenia Pedan, Philip Ewe, Richard Sides, Stuart Bailes, Stuart Middleton, Tim Devas, Toby Huddlestone, Trevor Kiernander.

in partnership with Collective Gallery, Edinburgh

In collaboration with Party the P.A.S.T. Projects Library and Archive present elephant related titles and a poster, designed by Party, with a text written by curator Naomi Pearce.

Glasgow based artist Neil Clements' presents Bad History (15 January 2011 – 13 February 2011), an exhibition of new work of sculpture, sound and photography created for the Woodmill hangar space.

Clements has compiled the following list of books, which acted as reference material for the exhibition, to be displayed in the P.A.S.T. Projects Library for the duration of the exhibition; Kustom Kulture (Laguna Art Museum), Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution by (Stephen Levy), The Past is a Foreign Country (David Lowenthal) and The Ferus Gallery: A Place to Begin (Kristine McKenna).
