New site-specific installation at Pyramid Arts Centre commissioned by Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival, opening night on 29 September 2017 - all welcome.
Echo is a new site-specific installation exploring uncertainty, transience and the gap between and interplay within purely sensory feeling and experience and more literal, rational thought-based experience and memory.
The projection and sculptural work creates dialogues with materials, memory and the physical space.
Echo is open at the Pyramid Arts Centre, Warrington until 27 January 2018, Mon to Fri 9-5 (Weds often open to 9pm but call in advance to check on 01925 442345), Sat 10-2.
(Pyramid Arts Centre is closed over the Christmas holidays from 22 December, re-opening 2 January).
Summer is being spent making new work for several exciting shows and projects coming up in the autumn, together with continuing practice research and a series of visits and meetings with curators and artists.
Thanks to Arts Council England for the current Grants for the Arts award which is funding this activity.
