We are presenting a work entitled 'Thirteen Points, Expanded' at &Model gallery in Leeds as part of the Wayfaring exhibition curated by the artist Laura White.
THIRTEEN POINTS, EXPANDED
Focusing on the ‘Interface Areas’ that separate Nationalist and Unionist communities in Belfast, 'Thirteen Points, Expanded' reflects on the specific spatial and psychological conditions that contour the parts of the city that have been segregated as a result of the political conflict in Northern Ireland. The work is in three parts, subtitled Plan, Section & Elevation: The ‘Plan’ is an architectural part of the work; the ‘Section’ is a HD video work; the ‘Elevation’ is a collection of thirteen prints on aluminium panel.

Wayfaring, curated by Laura White in collaboration with &Model Leeds, looks at the territory White shares with other artists whose work asks similar questions and who also travel across diverse disciplines, as writers, researchers, educators, makers, craftspeople, film-makers, architects or poets. In fluid movement between investigations and disciplines, processes are revealed and are always open to further possibilities. Materials drive the process as much as the artist handling them (film, video, architecture, words, leather, clay, paper, photography) and thinking through making and understanding by doing are central to how these artists work and the way the exhibition is made.
Preview on Thursday 28 April 2016, 6pm-8pm, then open Wednesdays to Saturdays, 2pm to 5pm until 4 June 2016.
