Weather Station (Part 1) Artists
Jethro Brice Born 1984, London. Grew up in Jerusalem. Lives in Bristol, UK
Jethro Brice works across media and fields of professional practice, using found materials and borrowed languages to elicit layered histories of place. He works with other people in diverse contexts, to develop collaborative approaches for an unsettled future and a contested past.
Jethro studied environmental art at the Glasgow School of Art (2006) and was recently awarded an AHRC doctoral studentship at the University of Bristol, to develop a creative geography of change in the wider Severn estuary. With Seila Fernandez Arconada he produces Some:when , a participatory public art project conceived in response to flooding on the Somerset levels, initiated with a grant from the Somerset Community Foundation. Recent exhibitions include Unruly Waters (Parlour Showrooms, Bristol) and The Power of the Sea (Royal West of England Academy).
Simon Lee Dicker Born 1975 London. Lives in Somerset UK.
Simon Lee Dicker is an artist. Not so much a maker of stuff as a maker of change, he is interested in how art can connect people and ideas, changing the way we think and act. From intimate drawings and transient installations to event based social activities, each work is the start of a conversation, often exploring the paradox of being both in and of the natural world.
Oscillating between public realm projects and exhibition making he has a restless practice that is constantly on the move whilst retaining a simple playfulness, energy and intuitive thoughtfulness throughout.
Simon is a co-founder of OSR Projects and lead Artist for Weather Station.
Alexander Stevenson Born 1981 in Maidenhead. Lives in Bristol UK
Alexander Stevenson mines information using processes usually associated with anthropologists, historians and researchers to create artworks, journeys and films. Huge fabric sculptures, live theatrical performances and narratives generated from remote locations are just some of the outcomes of these interests.
The work is informed by knowledge systems; how history is made and re-made through storytelling, objects and activities. He has previously explored how cultural activities, shared beliefs and personal myths can be appropriated, amalgamated, or re-presented.
Past activity includes a residency at Karst in Plymouth, a major new work for the Bristol Biennial, a commission for GoMA as part of Glasgow International Festival, a commission for Grand Union in Birmingham, headlining The Arches Live Festival in Glasgow, and a major commission for the fringe of the British Art Show 7 in Nottingham.
