In Place- exhibition is open in Hawick

Gallery box – Stones and Bones

Since I last posted a message I have been furiously making work for our new exhibition. We packed everything up last week and drove up to Hawick to deliver the work and install the pieces that are sited in the gardens around the museum. Looking up: looking down is a continuation of my creative conversation with Jan Miller when we showed work along Beach Road in Cley, Norfolk.

I can’t quite believe that my 7 gallery boxes are all located up in paper bark birch trees and Jan’s boxes are embedded down in the ground nearby. We just beat the rain and snow! The work in the gallery, In Place responds to the museum collection and the grounds of Wilton Lodge Park and continues our work, similar in some ways and quite different in others.

The show is on from 4th April – 24th May 2015 at Hawick Museum More information is on the website:
