Chacker Chacker
Craig Cooper, Tim Machin, Kelly Mark, Michael Stumpf

Craig Cooper splices and opposes industrial materials/objects to make often larger-scale constructions that alter and unsettle function. Cooper is currently working towards his Fine Art MA at St Martins School of Art, London.  
 
Tim Machin creates work that gently shifts the context of familiar materials/objects through subtle intervention and manipulation to create often small-scale and understated sculpture and installation. Recent solo shows include; Emergency2, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth. Recent group shows include; ‘How Happy a State does a Miller posses’ [insertspace], Birmingham; ‘Detourist’, MOT, London; and ‘Paperworld’, Transition Gallery, London.  
 
Canada based Kelly Mark works in a wide range of media and will be presenting video based work in ‘Chacker Chacker’. Mark’s work often draws upon the trivia and banality of day-to-day life, revealing absurdity and humour in the routines and repetitions we enact. Recent UK shows include; ‘Temporary Measures’, Associates Gallery, London; Liverpool Biennale, FACT, Liverpool.
 
Michael Stumpf makes mixed media sculpture and installation through often laborious processes using combinations of found, familiar and created objects/materials that allude to obscure an imagined narrative. Recent solo exhibitions include; Sorcha Dallas, Glasgow. Recent group shows include; ‘Obstacle, New UK Sculpture’, Spectacle Gallery, Birmingham; ‘International Enquirer’, Art Gene, Barrow-in-Furness.
