Curated by talking on corners. Exhibition of new work by 2022 Turner Prize nominee Ingrid Pollard.

About

The exhibition illustrates the intimacy, care, nuance and technical skill of Pollard’s extensive practice as one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists. It is a very rare opportunity to experience Pollard's work in the intimate context of the Georgian gallery at THG, once home to the artist Thelma Hulbert.

This new exhibition will feature photography, print, mixed media, installation, text and found objects. Together, this collection of new artwork invites us to consider the complex affects and relationships of the historical importation and travel of plants and people, asking us to unpack the resulting resonances on place and power. 

The new work has been created in response to Ingrid's research in the UK including Devon. Pollard has honed in on botanical gardens and local lace-making as well as the unique historical collections of books at the Devon and Exeter Institution. Drawing out her interests in classification, knowledge, leisure, trade and money, these themes can be unfolded far beyond Devon, into conversations spanning generations and geographies.

Pollard's contributions to art during her career have broken new ground and forged pathways for younger generations, shaping Britain's understanding and histories of art, society and culture.

This exhibition is part of a wider project in Devon produced by Ella S. Mills of talking on corners focused on the work of Pollard with a varied programme of activity. Project partners include Devon and Exeter InstitutionLibraries UnlimitedThe University of ExeterNatural EnglandSouth Devon College and the University of PlymouthIn addition to the partners and funding from Arts Council England, the project is generously supported by the University of Exeter’s Geography Departmentthe Association for Art Historythe Paul Mellon CentreLewisDavey, and Kaleider.
