Made of Holes - The Atrium


Exhibition dates: 20 January – 18 March

Lucy Irvine

Made of Holes is a captivating work that explores how we further our knowledge. Lucy Irvine has woven the artwork without predetermined design as a way of grappling with how we approach the unknown. The result is an intriguing and enigmatic installation for the atrium space.

Alien Nation - Boadle Hall Community Gallery


Exhibition dates: 24 February – 18 March

Sha Sarwari

Alien Nation highlights the issue of refugees and asylum seekers around the world. The treatment of refugees by various governments has polarised communities in many places.

The government’s rhetoric focuses on border control and terrorism and this has had the effect of alienating refugees from their new home and driving a division between peoples. After travelling long distances and crossing seas, with the hope of finding a safe place, refugees find themselves rejected by people enjoying peace and prosperity. They can be left puzzled and even question the existence of the essential unity of the human race.

Offsite exhibition projects
