In an age obsessed with digital perfection it seems appropriate to make an exhibition, which explores the anti-perfect. Looking at the difference between idea and execution and the
philosophical glitch between the everyday and the imagination. 3d Glitch explores the everyday altered, through chance, manipulation, data bending, error, accident, abstraction, distortion,
scale, space, speed, humour sadness, space, sound and the uncanny.

Title: ‘Biscuit’ 2015
Eric Bainbridge was born in Consett, County Durham, UK in 1955. He studied at Newcastle Polytechnic and completed a Masters in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London in 1981.
Initially recognized in the 1980s for his object-based works covered in synthetic fur, Eric Bainbridge has evolved an extensive sculptural practice addressing existential themes on an everyday level
through playful assemblages. Constructed out of commonplace objects and inexpensive building materials, his pieces continuously re-contextualize Modernist principles through a reconsideration of
the found object using DIY home-repair and improvement supplies as well as kitschy consumer products. Carefully staged, Bainbridge’s assemblages investigate the domestic and the everyday whilst
reflexively engaging with traditional sculptural concerns.
Bainbridge has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions and is considered an influential figure to a younger generation of established British artists. Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s he showed in
important group exhibitions such as Venice Biennale in both 1986 and 1990, “Material Culture” at the Hayward Gallery, London and solo exhibitions including “View Points” The Walker Art Centre,
Minnieapolis, “Eric Bainbridge” at The ICA, Boston, “Style, Space, Elegance” at The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. Bainbridge was included in “Modern British Sculpture” at the Royal Academy, Lon-
don - the most significant exhibition on British Sculpture in recent years, curated by Penelope Curtis and Keith Wilson.

Title: ‘The Work of Age in the Art of Digital Reproduction’
Branthwaite’s work focuses on how we relate to objects and the symbolic narratives we place on them. His work often uses found or re-appropriated objects and materials that are then placed in
specific contexts to generate further discourse about there extended meaning. This often occurs at the end of the objects life as a thing of value so can often been seen as a way of using its end
point as a moment of departure, free from social and economic value the subjects become concepts and further debate.
Branthwaite has worked on commissions, residencies and exhibitions internationally including: Platomas Train Station Greece, Zona Dynamic Berlin, and joint co-curator /lead artist of “Finding Tre-
blinka’ Treblinka Museum, Poland. He supports his artistic practice with a Fine Art Senior Lecturer post at Staffordshire University.
