Poster coded

This year, SCI will once again be taking part in Platforms Project, the Independent Art Fair of Athens.

Fitting in with the projects’ criteria of platforms-groups that produce works or projects together, SCI will be collaborating with 22 individual artists from around the UK, producing works about consumerism and branding. The artists have produced food and drinks labels highlighting their responses to coding.

Fuse 3

We are now preparing for the FUSE 3 exhibition in Sheffield which opens next week.

The exhibition brings together 9 artists representing their groups from 3 UK Cities – Exchange Place Studios Sheffield, SCI Liverpool and Harrington Mill Nottingham.

Exhibition artists are:

Michael Borkowsky, Brian Daines, Karen Davies (Sheffield)
Catherine Harrison, Jacqueline F Kerr, Wendy Williams (Liverpool)
Jackie Berridge, Dee Shiels, Alison Whitmore (Nottingham)



With support from Arts Council England, we were able to continue with our programme – travelling up to Sheffield and reaching out to a wider audience.


The title ‘FUSE’ is taken from the work we exhibited in Athens.  All of the artists in the Platform exhibition have exhibited in FUSE Sheffield, but like most of SCI’s exhibitions, we have gathered artists on the way.

Images from the exhibition :Relics

Using donated ceramics (many from Baltic Clay ) as a starting point, the artists involved in the exhibition set out to alter and adapt the pieces .


A poetry event based on ‘Relics’ was also organised and well attended

Read an interview with the curator :    and a review   :


Still using the theme of ancient Greece,  our next exhibition takes place in Tate Liverpool’s Group Reception room.

The room is transformed into a museum and the objects displayed are the findings from a lost civilisation. Pots and pieces of ceramics have been unearthed from the dig, giving a glimpse of the past….or possibly the future? 


Many Thanks to Andrew from Baltic Clay for donated ceramics
