Something of Place: The Museum Box Project and Library of Pilgrimages
September 09, 2017 @ 10:00 AM
Sat 9 Sep- Sat 4 Nov
Launch: 12-2pm Sat 9 Sep
These two exhibitions were created by Space Place Practice, a collective group of multidisciplinary practitioners who share an interest in researching the wider aspects of ‘landscape’.
In the Main Gallery the Museum Box Project takes disused Natural History Museum storage boxes as a starting point for each member of the group to create new artworks. The Library of Pilgrimages in our Ground Floor Gallery is a collaboration of ‘mini-installations’. Within the small confines of a foolscap filing box, the artists explore interactions with a space or a place. Each one records how we endow locations with special responses and recognises how a place may be integrated into our own ‘inner’ landscape.
