Dates of existence


Neville Gabie was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1959. He was the Lead Artist for the Year of the Artist projects, Forest of Dean Sculpture Trail 2000 - 2001. This project resulted from a Year of the Artists residency undertaken by Neville Gabie in the autumn 2000 and spring/ summer of 2001. It was realised with the financial assistance of South West Arts, the Forestry Commission and Arnolfini Collection Trust and the co-ordination by Bruce Allan and Samantha Wilkinson. The project was built upon a permanent work which sees the volume of a tree represented in a variety of states – as a permanent installation in the forest – alongside four event based pieces that were documented and presented in printed form

Whilst Artist in Residence at the Tate Gallery. Liverpool, the focus of the work was based around areas of urban regeneration. In an on-going project entitled “An A-Z of Empty Spaces” Neville began to consider the spaces and places, once homes and now left vacant. The objects left behind and notions of “home and belonging”. The tower block, Kenley Close was one such building
