CURRENT EXHIBITION: Brigitta Varadi, Artist in Residence, 'MARKINGS', Opening Friday, April 10th, 5-8pm

Brigitta Varadi’s work explores how memory can inform our present day perspectives and artistic expression. Using different type of fibres and textile technique Varadi searches for pattern and repetition of gesture that relate to the invisible and everyday rituals of working life and the constructed environment.

The MARKINGS exhibition gathers together and explores the different marks used by farmers to identify their sheep in the North West region. Works made with local wool are accompanied by a short video that explains the different markings, their meanings and symbolic use. Creating a dialogue with farmers and place the project opens on to a broader reflection concerning the signs and forms of identification humans use to identify animals, plants and territories.
