Ctrl/Shift - final cut

Last week I visited 20-21 Visual Arts in Scunthorpe to hang my work ‘The Sampling Project’. The gallery and nearby Scunthorpe Central (twin venues) are the final locations on the tour of the 62 Group Ctrl/Shift exhibition, which previously showed at MAC Birmingham and The National Centre for Craft & Design, Sleaford.

It was interesting to see the work again after months in storage. Handling and hanging I reacquainted myself with each sample piece. The colours, the materials, the handle of the cloth. It was quite pleasing to work with it during the day and to see the complete installation.

I have learnt a lot from the process of hanging the work at different locations. Working alongside curator Liz Cooper, the exhibition hanging teams and also seeing how other pieces are displayed has been a brilliant insight.

Ctrl/Shift: New Directions in Textile Art  continues: 14 Dec. 2019 - 29 Feb. 2020.

The book to accompany the exhibition is available to buy at the gallery or online.
