FOAM IS A PERIPATETIC PROJECT BY ARTIST MAT JENNER. CONCEIVED AS BOTH AN EXPERIMENTAL PLATFORM FOR COMMISSIONING AND AN EXPANDED ART WORK, FOAM PRESENTS SELECTED ARTISTS THROUGH A SERIES OF COMMISSIONS, EVENTS AND PUBLISHED MATERIALS.


AT THE HEART OF FOAM IS A GROWING ARCHIVE OF COMMISSIONED DUB PLATES, ONE-OFF, 12” RECORDS. THE ARCHIVE IS AVAILABLE FOR EXHIBITION, AS AN ARTWORK, ALONG WITH THE ACCOMPANYING CONSTITUENT PARTS OF THE INSTALLATION. EXHIBITION OF THE ARCHIVE IS STRICTLY WITHIN ITS CONCEPTUAL PARAMETERS.


RECORDS ARE UNIQUE, THEY CAN ONLY BE LISTENED TO IN SITU WITHIN A PHYSICAL LOCATION AND ARE NOT BROADCASTED OR DIGITALLY DISSEMINATED. DIRECT AUDIENCE INTERACTION IN SELECTING AND PLAYING WORKS IS NEEDED TO MAKE A WORK AUDIBLE.


SELECTED ARTISTS HAVE BEEN ASKED TO RESPOND TO THESE PARAMETERS IN THE FORM OF A ONE-OFF RECORD FOR INSERTION INTO THE COLLECTIVE BODY OF THE ARCHIVE. THERE ARE NO DIGITAL AUDIO PIECES AVAILABLE ON THIS SITE. A COMPLETE INDEX OF THE ARTISTS PARTICIPATING IN FOAM AND THE AVAILABLE WORKS CURRENTLY WITHIN THE ARCHIVE CAN BE FOUND ON THIS WEBSITE ALONG WITH DETAILS OF LIVE EVENTS AND EXHIBITIONS WHERE THE ARCHIVE CAN BE ACCESSED.


the attic has commissioned SIX ARTISTS TO CONTRIBUTE TO FOAM AND ONE ARTIST, SEB PATANE, TO PRODUCE A LIMITED EDITION. COMING SOON!


jenna finch / alice gale - feeny / sebastian jefford / Finbar and dexter prior / simon raven / murray royston-ward


The ATTIC HAS ALSO COMMISSIONED CALVIN SANGSTER TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A NEW STRUCTURE FOR FOAM IN NOTTINGHAM.
