Joe Winter’s series of work …a history of light (2009-) involves fading pigmented papers with either natural or artificial light to produce seemingly photographic, long duration exposures. This new site-specific commission uses glass objects created by Cate Watkinson at the National Glass Centre to reflect, refract or focus ambient light. A series of abstract images will slowly evolve as Spring approaches.
Curated by Sarah Cook. Supported by CRUMB and The University of Sunderland.
Join the artists, Joe Winter and Cate Watkinson, and curator Sarah Cook to learn more about the work on Wednesday 28 March at 6pm.
Joe Winter accompanies our Mirror Neurons exhibition, also part of 'AV Festival 2012: As Slow As Possible'. Visit the 'Mirror Neurons' exhibition page.
