Anneké Pettican is an artist and co-director of Brass Art (1999 -) with Chara Lewis and Kristin Mojsiewicz. Their collaborative practice explores the uncanny, including aspects of doubling and the limen – the inbetween spaces of the physical world and the realms of the imagination.
Brass Art’s recent exhibitions include Flights of Fancy, Tatton Park Biennial (2012) curated by Danielle Arnaud and Jordan Kaplan; Dark Matters: Shadow Technology Art, The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester (2011) curated by Helen Stalker; The Economy of the Gift, A Foundation, Liverpool (2011) curated by Ticiana Correa; Inside Out, Object Gallery, Sydney and touring; Concrete and Glass, Hoxton Square, London (2011) curated by Flora Fairbairn and Paul Hitchman.
Brass Art regularly present their research and practice at international conferences, and in published peer-reviewed journals and books. In 2012 they presented new research on 3D and 4D scanning in relation to the creation of shadow worlds at Siggraph 2012, Los Angeles, and their paper was published in a special edition of Leonardo (MIT Press). They further developed aspects of this practice as artists in residence at Creative Lab, Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA), Glasgow, 2012.
Additionally Brass Art collaborate with other practitioners, researchers and industries. Recent artistic collaborators include Professor Monty Adkins, Simon Patterson, Alison Mealey and Spencer Roberts. Pettican and Roberts installations have been shown at international festivals including the International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA) and Bank Art, Yokahama, Japan as part of the 2008 Biennial.
