Fi will be artist-in-residence at Harrington Mills Studios as part of Sideshow 2010. Sideshow is a series of citywide contemporary art, music, and performance events & exhibitions driven by Nottingham based artists and curators. It is part of The British Art Show which is now in its seventh incarnation opening in Nottingham, and tours for the first time in 20 years to the Hayward Gallery, followed by venues in Glasgow and Plymouth. It is curated by Lisa Le Feuvre and Tom Morton. Fi will be drawing and mark-making in a flour garden using only items from the kitchen cupboard. The home baking theme will be explored throughout the exhibition through the eyes of a Japanese Zen garden. This residency builds on Fi’s recent work Ruminate which explores the notion of words being ‘ingested’ to become permanent or temporary thoughts.
Throughout the residency, Fi will be producing both large and small-scale images; these will be displayed as part of the exhibition and form the content for the artist’s book which will be available in early 2011.
Harrington Mills Studios exhibition dates are November 29th to December 18th.
Harrington Mills Studios is situated in Long Eaton. Buses - Trent Barton Indigo (every 6-7 mins from Nottingham) also Trent Barton Express Train - regular service from Nottingham Car - 5 mins from M1 Junction 25
