Doug Clark, Liz Clay, Luba Diduch, Pippa Galpin, Liz Harding, Alison Harper, Roxanne Jackson, Kay Swancutt, Moira Turner, Kate Wilson. Curated by Dr Jo Dahn. Coordinated by Louis D’Arcy-Reed. This diverse multimedia exhibition gives an insight to the processes, physical and psychological, involved in developing and finalising visual art work from the perspective of the maker. The ten artists exhibiting are all doing practice-based doctoral research at Bath Spa University, which requires them to mine and document their own experiences and thought processes. Political ceramics rub up against the haptic ritual of felt making, yarn made from waste materials against conceptual monuments, and photographic prints against web 2.0 technology. The works shown also create a dialogue between themselves; highlighting the haptic, provoking modern notions of forgotten skills. Big Draw Workshop: Saturday 6 October 11am – 3pm. Join Alison Harper to make a 3 dimensional drawing using yarn made from old packaging. Free drop-in, suitable for families.
