I’ve returned to see Alan and Helen at Allenheads Contemporary Arts and also to install one of the Sifting Defunct Modernity polygons that I completed last year. Alan asked if I would install the piece as part of their Beyond programme – engaging with the community observatory and questions of scientific reason – that runs until the end of July. This follows the open door residency that I started earlier in the year (see below). There will be work by other artists from the residency in the exhibition space, which sits within an old mill building in the village. The exhibition itself is part of the wider cultural programme for the Great Exhibition of the North. I also left Alan with some of my recent collagraph prints including Cosmic Latte and versions printed onto cardboard that work well in conjunction with the spacial object.
