in light of the recent situation in the uk due to covid-19, i thought that it might be a interesting project to create windowside gallery. however, i knew i didn’t want the galleries purpose to just be a way to display artists work but also to interact with the local community. therefore the pot design project was created, with the exhibtion running from 18th April until 3rd May. which was an interactive community project featuring individuals' pot designs, it was a real success with lots of interesting and creative designs sent in, it was a pleasure to display in the window. below there is a short film of all the entries and a small booklet of the entries as a collective, which once clicked on can be downloaded.
hayleigh simpkins was our first visiting artist at the windowside gallery. Simpkins' exhibition, type has a shadow ran from the 4th - 10th may 2020.
type has a shadow originally stemmed from simpkins' research into cryptography and how ciphers were used to conceal type.
the mobile hanging in the centre of the gallery window is a vehicle for motion and distortion, the hanging of the letters creates shadows, that change with the time of day and the light source.
naughty water was our first company hosted at the gallery. the initiative exhibited their pop-up event from the 22nd - 24th may.
the pop-up centred around the rephrase collection being released that week. naughtywater is a small-scale company that invites artists to design garments to be released in small collections at pop-up events.
