Resurfacing

It's a week since the completion and Opening Night of Fr-Agile @ South Square Gallery; and it's about two years since our very first visit On Spurn. It's been more or less the start of this blog as well.

So, it took a while to find, create and display Fr-Agile. And often it felt like riding against the wind. Maybe the ever present gusts of Spurn?

After a strenuous installation week - it seems I can be as well prepared as possible, there's always The Unforeseeable creating a whirl - the Opening Night was really nice!

Fr-Agile, two projections on curved screens (Seascape and Buoy), received funding from the Arts Council England and the Humber Mouth Festival, Hull.

The two three-dimensional video sculptures are the outcome of a research residency:

ON SPURN

Spurn Head, a spit of land on the Holderness coast, is a three and a half mile line of sand and shingle that forms a sweeping curl where the North Sea meets the Humber Estuary. It is a place of continual change – of constant erosion and reformation. It's a haven for plants and wildlife and also a place of man made interventions. The Humber is the UK's busiest shipping channel, requiring a permanently manned lifeboat station.
On Spurn is a research residency for six artists, in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. During the summer 2008 Bob Levene, Pete McPartlan, Rick Welton, Jo Millett, Rob Gawthrop and I developed new work in response to Spurn Point. Click here to read my Blog.

This project is supported by Arts Council England, Yorkshire, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and East Riding of Yorkshire.
