DECEMBER IN DOK ARTIST SPACE
Since opening its doors to contemporary artists a mere six months ago, DOK Artist Space has been progressing its ambitious program at a rate of knots (pun intended, as this location was originally constructed by Leith Docks shipbuilding apprentices.) Several well-received exhibitions have been hosted by a diverse range of artists, while the so-called 'Steel Shed' was a venue during the 2016 Edinburgh Arts Festival for Supporting Act, a site-specific outdoor installation by Turkish-born Baha Görkem Yalim, now based in Amsterdam and Petter Yxell from Sweden.
From 4-7 December DOK presented 'Still Working', showcasing works on paper by four artists - Hayley Mathers, Neil Nodzak, Jennifer Ouson and Colette Woods - based on current themes and ideas that were still being explored.
Of course, one of the defining aspects of art is the fact that it covers as many bases as there are individual artists. On 9 December, the Steel Shed's metal rafters were blasted by the experimental/improvisational sonic landscapes created by Gölden Püssy, a noise/'art' duo launching their debut cassette in this unique setting.
