VOLts (VOLunteers test space) are an eclectic group of emerging and established artists who also volunteer at Spike Island. Here they collaborated for the first time, drawing inspiration from the philosophical nature of Test Space, in particular the sensations of transience and dissociation that pervade the space.
This exhibition was the climax of their recent residency in Spike Island studios. The VOLts artists are: Shirley Alderton, Caroline Blake, Aloys Feeney, James Norman, Annie O’Connor, Sarah Ramsey, Cat Smith and Beckie Upton.
Test Space is programmed by studio holders based at Spike Island and offers artists a chance to exhibit new works and test ideas. Artists from within the Spike Island community and beyond are included.
