Calcium Storeys | Jamie Kane

October 14, 2017 4:55 pm

Calcium Storeys is an exhibition of new work developed by Jamie Kane during his Studio Projects Residency at Market Gallery this summer (2017). The exhibition centres around a video that through a consideration of materiality, forms an assemblage of people and things, culminating in an architectural proposal.

The film takes Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) as a starting point. It is a substance that makes up chalk, used as a bone supplement and in its crystalline form doubly refracts images seen through it. Calcium Storeys central protagonists are artefacts that offer alternative ways of considering individual and group, using Calcium Carbonate as a means to do this.

Jamie has collaborated with architect and illustrator Lauren Li Porter as well as groups of musical improvisers (the bands Butter and Fua) creating a soundtrack for the film.

Opening: Thursday 26th of October. 18:30 – 21:00
Exhibition: 27th October – 5th November 2017, open Thursday-Sunday, 12:00 – 18:00
