Spurn Cloth 2 (extended)
Textures of Spurn opened last Friday at The Bowery, Leeds. This exhibition sees Spurn Cloth #2 hung in a new way. Rather than hanging the 10 metre long cloth vertically as before, it has been hung horizontally round the gallery to form a band of texture or a horizon that surrounds the viewer. The installation has then been completed by continuing that band of texture and marks round the room to form a circle, only interrupted by doorway and window.
The new section has been made from rusted paper and print using the same beach-combed items from Spurn as were used on the fabric. I've collaged the layers of paper straight onto the gallery wall - something that was scary but satisfying to do!
More detail can be found here. The exhibition is on until 5th July.
