The sixth sense of understanding (mixed media on canvas 200x180cm with basket and text) is currently on show at Studio Kind until the 3rd February as part of Out with the old and in with the new, the inaugural exhibition in their new space at Barnstaple Pannier market.
The pannier (another word for basket) market is an ancient meeting place where news and stories would traditionally have been shared as well as produce bought and sold. Contemporary medieval tapestry-like paintings use a vernacular of figures, patterns and symbols to create productive re-orientations of the past. Old and new imagery has the power to re-create fictions about women, and domestic and caring roles; to tell and share new stories about our lives now.
Curated by Studio Kind with artists from the South West (who are CAMP members):
Alice Clough, Liam Jolly, Stuart Robinson, Janet Sainsbury, Melanie Young, Neil Robinson, Gemma Mackenzie, Stella Tripp,Nicky Harwood, Erika Cann ,George Rayner.
Open from wednesdays-saturdays 11-5pm until Sunday 3rd February.
