About

Artist Jonathan Wright will talk about his installation at the Curious Projects gallery, 'Tidemark', in the context of his practice, and about the challenges of making work site-specifically.

About 'Tidemark':
The earliest settlement in Eastbourne was built around the Bourne stream. ‘Tidemark’ makes a direct reference to the history of this watercourse – now hidden from view but still running through the centre of town. A polished surface bisects the work: the connections between the objects above and below are physical and metaphorical – making reference to the machinery of the modern city and the interconnectedness of our everyday lives.  

About Jonathan Wright:
Jonathan Wright works in painting, sculpture and installation, often incorporating sound. He studied at the RCA and has exhibited widely, both in the UK and abroad. Wright was one of the commissioned lead artists at the 2014 Folkestone Triennial with ‘Pent Houses’, created in collaboration with Diane Denver.
