rednile specialise in projects which link to regeneration and the changing public realm. Our approach is to explore site and place, using a wide range of methodologies often including play as a concept, revealing the hidden or unknown and activing unused or unexpected spaces. We aim to highlight important issues, instigate debate, often in a public, non-art setting and to create art/design pieces which have impact, quality and innovation. It is very important to us that art/design can be appreciated on different levels by audiences whilst remaining challenging and retaining a clear artistic rationale. Past projects have involved temporary and permanent artworks and integrated design features located within housing estates, parks and buildings.
‘Sometimes, expectations or hopes for a project will not quite work out; it won’t go wrong, exactly, but will be lacking something. On other occasions, expectations are exceeded; not only is the outcome as good or better than hoped for, but the process to get there achieves more than expected or hoped for – in terms of community interest, public feedback, stakeholder engagement, artistic approach, etc. This was one of those projects.’ – Mike Campbell, Arts and Creative Development Manager, North Tyneside Council commenting on Pioneering Species, June 2009.
