On the Edge: from transgression to frontier
including work by Gordon Senior, Adam King, Antonia Beard, Fliss Carey
Edges can be fascinating as places where ecosystems collide. Being edgy is to be a frontier, at the avant-garde. It can also be a place of danger, teetering over a precipice. Or there can be an edge of anticipation, a state of encouter. Several installations will form the core of this exhibition, each one raising a different edge issue. Adam King’s installation for the stairwell will be about edge spaces, suburbs, town encroaching on country. Antonia Beard will make a environmental installation developing from her work for Houghton Festival in August and Gordon Senior will show a collection of his Tools of Uncertain Use - a witty collection of sense and nonsense - possibly useful, puzzling and thought-provoking about what we save, how we make things and what gets discarded.
