Sites of exchange: materialising conversations is a research-led exhibition that explores ‘making’ as a way of investigating and sharing ideas.
The project questions how acts of ‘doing’ inform research and interpretation. The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries’ Space, will act as an inter-disciplinary laboratory bringing together unique ideas, opening new dialogues through the ‘art of inquiry’.
The exhibition holds conversations from different locations, Warp Scaffold is based on research in Gujarat, India alluding to current change taking place in the country through the artists’ observations of weaving and shifts in economic and construction processes. Silent Conversations is a material network of crafted conversations that were made in Winchester’s archaeology archive and Cathedral. It forms a layered installation of different visual languages referencing the people and locations it was made in.
The project will evolve as visual research during the month long exhibition, organically developing as new audiences become participants revealing new conversations and forms of creative engagement.
A research project showcase presented by Trish Bould, Belinda Mitchell, Kathy Oldridge, Eileen White and invited participants including Lokesh Ghai.
