As part of our support for Pushing Print we are hosting Solo Show Prize Winner 2013, Sarah Gillett, who will be exhibiting new work made for this exhibition.
Unstuck in time, a strange collection of objects, drawings and prints warns of events long gone and events still to come. Nothing is quite what it appears to be in this experimental installation.
The following is taken from Sarah Gillett’s blog written for Pushing Print
I have started seeing meteorites everywhere; little interruptions or interventions in the pattern of life. In oil spills on tarmac, in ruins, in dirt splashes on train windows, in shattered mirrors.
Recently I walked past Tate Britain in London and spent ages studying the bomb-blasted, shell-shocked walls, damaged in the Second World War. Remnants of broken time, like a stopped clock.
I see these ‘loomings’ as occupying both fixed and hypothetical spaces, like the noonday shadow. At noon, objects cast a shadow on themselves, the shadow and the object becoming indivisible, two versions combined. The loomings have a physical reality, but when is this? Their presence is layered into my work before the event, during the event and after the event, as I alter old postcards and tapestries to shift perspectives. Like my shadow in the picture, the loomings are coming, but they have already left their trace.
