Exhibition at The Tetley, Leeds.’A Watery Line’ sought to investigate the point where art interacts with everyday life through various forms of ‘making’. We used the multi-roomed space (formerly the HQ of Tetley brewery) to explore the different lines of enquiry within our shared practice.

Collaborative, improvised large scale sculptural installation. This was built during the exhibition and was used as a stage set for performances and readings.

A series of practitioners (Joe Gilmore, Peter Nencini & Sally Nencini, Matt Hodson, Kate Gibb) were invited to run workshops on book design, experimental embroidery, printmaking and writing.

A body of paintings, collages, drawings, prints and objects was exhibited in the ‘Saville Row’ gallery.

Frame. William Luz. Mixed media.

Micromegas. Nicolas Burrows. Gouache, matchboxes, aluminium, enamel paint, paper.

Folly. Jay Cover. Wood, string.

Occupying a different part of the gallery for 2 weeks, we focused on creating new work in the space.

Nicolas wrote and recorded a collection of songs

William made a ceramics studio, producing objects based around social situations

Jay walked, talked, visited and researched with contemporary practitioners in the city in order to make a responsive publication

We also curated a series of events, including a ‘social’ night, film screenings and talks as part of our events programme.
