WAKE by Tether

From the Caretaker’s House. Episode 1

Featuring Dave Charlesworth

Tether Wake Live at Primary 24 April 2012 9pm

Four years ago, the world was startled by the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, arguably the most impressive visual spectacle of modern times. But amidst the rockets fired to create the perfect weather, the digitally composited footstep fireworks and that ugly child with the perfect voice being hidden away in a broom cupboard, there emerged an element of deception that only became apparent because of mankind’s fondness for suspicion.

On 24 April 1558, Mary, Queen of Scots married François, the Dauphin of France. On 24 April 1704, the first newspaper in the United States, the ‘News-Letter’, was published in Boston, Massachusetts. On 24 April 1967, Vladimir Komarov became the first human fatality during a space mission in the Soviet spacecraft Soyuz 1.

On 24 April 2012, Tethervision will launch Caretakers House, their latest series live at Primary in Nottingham and also streamed live online.
Wake – the first programme in the series features a performance of ‘A Struggle Told 5 Ways’ by London-based artist Dave Charlesworth.
With the analogue to digital switchover, the kindle and the iPad, we are entering the final stages of the inevitable transition to a new, non physical materialism. Wake will mourn this slow passing of the analogue and look to the coming years to be spent with it’s new, energised replacement.

The event at Primary begins at 8pm. To book a space for this, visit http://wake.eventbrite.com
Wake will also be broadcast live online, Tuesday 24 April, 9pm BST at youtube.com/tethervision

Tether – Murder in The Kremlin by Tether
Murder in The Kremlin

Murder in The Kremlin

May 30th – June 14th
Private View : May 29th, 6-8pm followed by The Art Crawl

For the third and final show in the Wasp Room gallery’s inaugural season of exhibitions, Tether present ‘Murder in the Kremlin’; a tale of espionage, paranoia and death.

In this age of 24‐hour CCTV, where our daily lives are increasingly recorded, newspapers manufacture stories to sell copies and satellite news channels do
anything to keep us watching, who can we trust anymore? Amidst the paranoia and propaganda how can we hope for a simple answer?

With a story slowly unraveling before us, we piece together all we can to make sense of what we see. All that we know for sure is that we are in troubled times.

Collaborating on this large multi‐faceted group installation, Tether will use a variety of methods and media to create frozen moments, or episodes, in an untold narrative, with shades of the Hollywood thriller.

Supported by The National Lottery through Arts Council England and Nottingham Brewery

Submissions are invited for the Nottingham Launch of the e-publication ‘art art art‘ to be held at Tether Studios in late November 2008. We would like to select 6-8 artists working with live art, performance, and intervention art to realise their work across the evening.

The event will be a chance for the ‘art art art’ team to invite and meet with subscribers and contributors in the East Midlands region, allowing the magazine to grow in response to our readers needs.

Unfortunately there is no fee available for artists involved at present. However, we believe participating artists will benefit from the opportunity of working with Tether and the extra exposure, and networking potential the event will bring. ‘art art art’ currently has over 8200 subscribers with an average 940 visits to the site per month.

Interested artists are required to submit:

  • A 50-100 word description of proposed work
  • One documentary photo (1meg or less)
  • A recent CV including mobile phone number and email address.

The event will take place Thursday 27th November

Proposals should be sent to: events@artartartgallery.com

The deadline for proposals is Friday 31st October

Art Art Art is produced by Matt Roberts Arts, a not-for-profit organisation creating opportunities for recent creative graduates and early career artists. For more information and to view the latest issue of Art Art Art please visit: www.artartartgallery.com

Tether Studios consists of a mixture of visual artists who graduated from Nottingham Trent University in July 2007, plus practitioners from other backgrounds, whose interests range from curation, performance and fine arts. Tether formed out of a desire to stay in Nottingham and maintain the work ethic and sense of community that formed whilst studying at NTU.
