24 June – 3 July 2016
TABLE is an evolving exhibition of prototypes, works-in-progress and events that address the theme of the table as social and material form. The project brings together a group of very different artists, creating a situation that emphasises an open-ended process of thinking through material production. The idea of the table has a multitude of connotations: it is at once a ceremonial space for formal dinners and speeches, and an everyday site of living, a space of working and eating. It may even suggest a utopian space of convivial conversation; on the other hand, it also can be a site for negotiating social codes, hierarchies and gender.
TABLE is the result of an invitation by Tannery Artist Laura Eldret to Rachael Champion, Jonathan Trayte and Ox Art – Annabel Pettigrew and Rob MacPherson. For Eldret, a table is a site of transformation, unfolding melodramas and revealing social microcosms.
TABLE will be open daily 12 – 6pm, except Monday 27 June.
* A TABLE special event including round table discussion on the table, a ritual and a performance will take place on Saturday 2 July 3 – 5pm and include Rachael Champion, Laura Eldret and Ox Art – Annabel Pettigrew and Rob MacPherson. Free all welcome.
Tannery Projects is an occasional exhibition/ events space run by and for Tannery Arts artist.
