Installation planning….

In three weeks’ time I will be working on-site on my installation for Offerings for R-Space Gallery, Lisburn. Have been thinking through and rehearsing how to install, but I suspect this will all change on location, due to light, environment and emotional state ! I am looking forward to working with the space. http://www.rspacelisburn.com/offerings/

‘Offerings’ will bring together new and existing works from 2010-2017, including woven anti-form sculpture and hair-works. These works uses a mixed palette of old, unwanted clothing, hair and domestic related textile items as raw materials, and often depart from personal or collective experiences and explores themes around the body, femaleness, re-invention, textile histories and craft-labour. As from the 19th February I will be in residence at R-Space Gallery, installing the exhibition. As part of the exhibition I will be working in the Gallery while open to the public, finalising the installation on 27th and 28th February 2018, drop in and have a chat with me about the work in situ.

I am also delighted to reveal Professor Catherine Harper’s newly written essay titled ‘Lucy Brown: ‘secrets she keeps from herself’ is now available to read on the R-Space Gallery’s Website – http://www.rspacelisburn.com/offerings/

Taking individual starting points to Red, influenced by their own practice, the artists explore interior and exterior space, identity, displacement, materiality, the body, ways of seeing, storytelling and rituals.
