Fold is the outcome of a number of residencies and visits to Modernist villas in Europe including Villa Stenersen in Oslo, The Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht, Sonneveld House in Rotterdam and her many years experience delivering gallery education at the De La Warr Pavilion. Haward explores the tensions between the rational, heroic and transparent architecture sought by male Modernist architects and the role they often assigned to women as mere decorators of male structures. Velvet and silk are used alongside rigid wooden structures to test and play with these assumptions in an attempt to disrupt such associations.
fold WORKSHOP and PANEL DISCUSSION
On Saturday 26 May there will be two activities which will enable the public to get involved
in working site specifically. Please email Sharon directly to book a place on the workshop
From 10.00-1.00 there will be a 3 hour workshop where the building and its environs will be used as a sensory stimulus for mapping, drawing and text based activities which will be compiled into an artists book.
At 2pm Haward will chair a panel discussion with independent curator Christine Gist and
artists Nicole Zaaroura and Louise Kenwood exploring the process of researching and
creating site-specific work and on curating projects with British and European partners at a
range of non-gallery venues, sites and locations in the UK and abroad.
