NETTIE HORN is ple ased to present “By-Product” a group exhibition curated by Fozia Khaliq which investigates the working processes of the artists Corinne Felgate\, Dmitri Galitzine\, Laura Yuile and Simon Reube n White. The exhibition explores the history of the objects and sounds usually used by these artists in the search of some incid ental happening or development that can be understood in some sh ape or form as a by-product.
The exhibiting artists were asked to br ing to light the elements which they would normally discard or l eave behind in their working processes. Having reconsidered this notion of “by-product” within the context of their body of work \, each artist has translated it into newly developed and re-dev eloped works and therefore reconsidering their own working pract ices and methods. Focusing on this idea of “by-product” is a way of challenging our views on the value of art and what exactly i s loaded into an object or sound that gives its status to an art object.

Corinne Felgate
Through arbitrary human interaction\, Felgate's sculpture "blinded by the light" becomes\, similarly to previous works\, unavoidably performative. Her crafted installations and re-workings of everyday objects become explorations of a culturally constructed idea of the ordinary. Through theatrizing the associated characteristics of familiar objects\, Felgate questions the functional process of a culture based on collective rituals.

Dmitri Galitzine
“My work utilizes s pecific (and often bizarre) subcultures to examine the absurditi es of modern life. The Huntsman\, the Oilman and the Pigeon Fanc ier provide the framework to consider the social anachronisms of Britain today. Cultural traditions and rituals are examined thr ough juxtaposition: Science Fiction with B&\;Q. The work draw s upon the stuff of catalogues\, the paraphernalia known only to the hobbyist on a Saturday afternoon in the garage. My work is both familiar and alien\, local and foreign and seeks to be just as beautiful as it is hideous”
Galitzine uses materials such as tar which is a chem ical by-product of industrial processes and has drawn together a visual catalogue of overlooked sub-cultural references. The com bination of the two creates a conversation around the incident of cultural cross-references.


Laura Yuile
Yuile’s work in “By-Product” will address previou sly exhibited works\, and therefore opening a discussion about t he artist’s ongoing personal battle between action and thought\, concept and form. A self confessed obsessive\, Yuile’s sculptur al collages will be replaced by a video installation alongside a diaristic\, self reflective interview-style narration. In addition\, a throne created from discarded materials used in previous sculptures will seat the viewer as the artist shares her concerns and pers onal feelings of failure. The dismantling and reassembling of th ese art objects reflects a similar process of fragmentation and reconstruction of the artist’s thoughts and emotions.

Simon Reuben White
White’ s working process involves continuous archiving of daily happeni ngs with particular emphasis on his own life and experiences. Us ing his personal history as a constant source for the sounds he documents\, he then edits and re-composes them into sound pieces .
For By-Product\, White has paid particular attention to the sounds which he previously chose not to include in his works. This ‘wa ste’\, created from the editing process and being a by-product o f the artists working methods\, would usually be devalued and di scarded to make room for a more refined art piece. White will be collecting and re-assembling his sound by-products into a new s ound piece looking back into the forgotten history within the so und.
