What does it mean to live in a post-industrial northern city in this tumultuous time?
Over the past 22 months the artists have been engaged in various forms of dialogue, collaboration and parallel directions in research. Considering how as artists and European citizens, we interact with our physical environment and the effect this has on the larger world, physically and metaphysically.
The first Corduroy exhibition in Stockholm included artworks and works in progress, products of this dialogue. Part 2 concludes with an exhibition in Bolton, in September 2018.
New show opening 20th October. The Gallery at St George's House is a great space in Bolton. All Welcome.
The Gallery at St. George’s House is pleased to present an ambitious new exhibition by four Greater Manchester artists; Kate Davies, Sarah Feinmann, Maggie Hargreaves and Fiona Moate.
Collage and works on paper or canvas reflect the processes at work in our environment; the ways in which nature supports life and the ways in which time and people put their mark on nature. This exhibition looks at nature itself as well as at the traces, erosions and edifices, from wheel tracks to monuments, fences to hill figures: the results of time, history and people’s interactions with their surroundings.
Each artist brings a unique focus to the exhibition: Kate Davies looks at the overlooked and insignificant parts of the worked landscape and at the tracks and traces, sticks and stones which mark the land; Sarah Feinmann’s work uses juxtapositions of used and worn scraps and fragments of paper to examine the nature of time, memory, change and erosion; Maggie Hargreaves is interested in the natural environment and how the interactions within it enable it to function as a habitat for all; and Fiona Moate makes semi abstract paintings, which incorporate landscape elements, from ancient monuments to architectural landmarks.
