Wakefield Artwalk - 28 March 2018

28.03.2018 to 28.03.2018

This March Artwalk, we are pleased to present an exhibition of new work from Artist in Residence, Simona Brinkmann, alongside installations from several of other artists, including members and studio holders. 

 

Exhibitions are free to attend and all are welcome.


 

Simona Brinkmann: Override

Artist in Residence Simona Brinkmann has been living and creating work at The Art House throughout March. This Artwalk she presents Override, the results of her time in Wakefield.

Brinkmann makes primarily sculptural work that explores objects – their connotations, their placement, and how these considerations inform each other.

 

Ellie Collins: Sweepings

For Sweepings, Ellie Collins’ diverse narratives are the catalyst for sound, film and assemblage with thematic cohesion in colour, texture, proximity and form. 

Collins favours institutional spaces where she can respond intuitively to features such as carpet, ledges and radiators.

Sweeping on carpet is frustrating and certain to end in at least partial failure. Embracing futility, the artist rejects ease or perfection in place of something richer, more abstruse and irregular.

 

Jason Wilsher-Mills: 1995 Disability Discrimination Act

An opportunity to see touring work by digital artist and painter Jason Wilsher-Mills, on display at The Art House from 15 March 2018. The artist presents a commemorative banner to the 1995 Disability Discrimination Act, using humour and snapshots from his life to celebrate the changes for the better and signal the changes still needed.

Edgeland Arts: Above and Below the Surface, A Social Geographic Map of Wakefield District

On behalf of Wakefield Arts Partnership, Edgeland Arts are working with the National Coal Mining Museum for England to explore how Wakefield’s hidden geological coal seams have impacted the visible landscape and the social lives of the people who live in the area.

During the evening, Edgeland Arts will work with visitors to The Art Walk to create and shape their Social Geographic map.
