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.
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.
