The first new work I’ve exhibited in a while is now on show at the latest Markmakers exhibition at The Brindley in Runcorn. A maquette for a maze of displacement is a video installation work that forms a study for a proposed mass participation public intervention.
Landmarks & Boundaries is the latest project from Markmakers; Halton’s contemporary art collective, and is inspired by the artists’ geographical location of living near to the coastlines of North West England and Wales, and their individual experiences, knowledge of tides, islands, pathways, histories, folklore and rites of passage.
Crossings at high tide, clothes as signifiers of personal boundaries, migration and the experience of moving through the physical landscape are among the subjects explored with media ranging widely from paint and print to sculpture, textiles and installation.
Expect the unexpected and join the artists for their gallery talk and reception on Saturday 17 September in the Brindley Gallery at 1pm, all welcome, refreshments will be served.
Opening hours: Mon – Fri 10am – 5pm, Sat 10am – 3pm
The Brindley Theatre, High Street, Runcorn, Cheshire, WA7 1BG
