365drawings / Show Your Wound

show your wound

I am delighted to announce that my 365drawings project along with at least two of the larger sixteen panel drawings will be exhibited in November at the Vallum Gallery on the campus of the University of Cumbria Institute of the Arts.

The details of the show are as follows:

25th November – 8th December, but will hopefully be on for a little longer than that

The gallery is on Brampton Road (CA3 9AY) and entrance is free. The gallery is open Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm.

There will be an opening event on the evening of 24th November from 5pm. I will be doing a short talk about the work and will also be selling copies of the 365drawings book. Please do come along.

At least two suites of works will be exhibited:

365drawings This will be the second outing for this collection of drawings (the first being in January 2014 at Bank Street Arts) but as I have replaced sold drawings with drawings of them in their new homes, the collection will look different. At the time of writing, I am not sure how they will be displayed as it depends somewhat on the configuration of the gallery.

The Show Your Wound portion of the show will consist of the second iteration of After Joseph Beuys’ Wirtschaftswerte (the first being on tour with the Jerwood Prize show) and After Caravaggio’s The Incredulity of St Thomas displayed as a diptych. The title – Show Your Wound – is borrowed from a work made by Beuys in Munich in the mid-1970s and will, I hope, reinforce the juxtaposition of two drawings of disparate works. Both works are presented as site of encounter and penetration, with the wound of Christ being displayed to assuage Thomas’ doubt and the shelving being a porous reconstruction of the Berlin Wall.
