Off Bridge Street
Sander Van Raemdonck is Berwick Visual Arts current artist in residence in partnership with the Centre for Rural Economy (CRE) at Newcastle University. Join us as he presents a new body of work exploring rural housing in Northumberland.
During his residency the artist has formulated architectural design proposals, not to suggest an answer to rural housing issues, but as a way to provoke current concepts of what ‘rural’ might mean within this context. A site of proposed development in the town - Spittal Point in Spittal (Berwick), has also been used as a case study during the residency. Sander has used his role as an artist in residence to encourage debate about the site, its heritage, issues and opportunities. This case study and the works created for the exhibition explore common aspects of rural life, using design processes to rethink them. Part museum, part office, the exhibition is considered to offer a space for thought and discussion.
Berwick Visual Arts residency in partnership with CRE, provides the opportunity for an artist working in any discipline to question what and who is rural, and explore rural life and society beyond idyllic representations, whilst living and working in Berwick-upon-Tweed for six months. This year the residency called for original artist-led conceptualisations of rural housing issues that would instigate creative thinking, expressions and research questions about rural homes. 'Inclosure' runs until Sunday 5 June at The Granary Gallery, 2nd Floor, Berwick YHA, Dewar's Lane, Berwick-upon-Tweed TD15 1HJ. Open Wed-Sun 11am-5pm
