For its inaugural exhibition, PERICLO presents GIRLS, a two-person display of work by Rebecca Gould and Lindsey Mendick.

About

Though they have previously exhibited together, Girls sees Gould and Mendick working alongside each other for the first time, embracing a semi-collaborative process through long distance conversation. Their work retains an individual persona whilst adopting and being influenced by certain elements and nuances from the other's practice which has become apparent throughout the installation period.

Choosing GIRLS as the title for their duo exhibition, Gould and Mendick are taking an ownership of the term ‘girls’; an authority over this loaded term that symbolises much more than gender and sexuality; a friction that alludes to both the similarities and differences in their practices.

Rebecca Gould lives and works in Wales.

Lindsey Medick lives and works in Sheffield.

PERICLO is a platform for risk and experimentation in contemporary visual art. During Oriel Wrecsam's transitional period - moving from its home of over 40 years at Wrexham Library to an exciting new cultural centre development in Wrexham’s People's Market building - PERICLO forms one exhibition strand with peripatetic projects taking place across the town centre and beyond.

PERICLO is an Oriel Wrecsam exhibition programme, supported by Wrexham County Borough Council, Arts Council Wales and Welsh Government.
