Nicola Naismith & Dominique Rey - Touring Territories No.1 East Anglian U.F.O Archive



UFO Archive Discussion / Video Screening / Book Launch

Touring Territories Project: East Anglian U.F.O archive.

In 2011 artists Nicola Naismith and Dominique Rey, developed Touring Territories; a collaborative project for Space Exchange at Aid and Abet in Cambridge.

This evening event offers information about the project and its collaborative approach. Speaking about their experiences, the artists will show images of their UFO research and also discuss Touring Territories as a whole.

Dave Evans (The Royal Standard, Liverpool) tasked the pair to explore UFO sightings in the eastern region.  Acting as jobbing researchers, Naismith & Rey travelled to areas of potential sightings through the region, seeking information through field trips, interviews and explorations.

In connection with the talk there will be a video screening of 4 short works by Erica Eyres, Paul Graham, Naismith and Rey.

Nicola Naismith and Dominique Rey are both founder members of the artist collective Satellite; an artists' collective founded in March 2007 as a roaming critical dialogue group. The group meets to critically discuss creative practice, professional development and create opportunities for developing projects and exhibitions. The collective has no permanent physical space and moves around East Anglia for events, studio and exhibition visits.

“We don’t have our own physical space but we have a cultural landscape”.
Dominique Rey in-conversation with Nicola Naismith. 

Satellite have organised public professional development events for artists in the form of In Conversations:  Susan Collis and Richard Forster (Norwich Arts Centre 2009) and Barbara Steveni, Founder of the Artist Placement Group with Satellite artist Nicola Naismith (firstsite 2011). 

Touring Territories is a Satellite Project developed and delivered by Nicola Naismith and Dominique Rey.
