Abstract or Description
This book's texts are by Nick Crowe and Sharon Kivland. Brass Art are Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican, three artists based in Manchester and Glasgow, who have worked together since 1998. "Galanty" presents documentation and commentary on their recent projects. Brass Art explore real space and virtual space by positioning themselves as drawings, shadows, digital sprites and performers. Sometimes they seek privileged vantage-points from which they can oversee the architecture of the city; occasionally they trespass or occupy seemingly inaccessible realms. Central to this is their examination of thresholds or liminal spaces and the gap between public and private experience. As modern day flaneuses they travel unimpeded. For each of their journeys they select appropriate accoutrements: an anonymous suitcase customised with neon signage and battery, a self-drawn map, a disguise.
