Through their respective interests in the land, the body and the cosmos, Krinsky, Wyss and Eyre explore relationships between time and materiality. Their exhibited works provide singular “readings” of phenomena such as the erosion of gravestones, (re)configurations of human bones and the cosmological orbits of rocky bodies by which we measure time.
Built in the 13th century, St. Augustine's Tower houses a magnificent 16th century clock whose mechanisms still strike the hours, occupying three floors connected by steep spiral stone stairs. The nature of time itself was a concept that St Augustine of Hippo grappled with in his philosophical texts sixteen centuries ago and is still perplexing us today; namely, how to equate the subjective experience of time with an objective understanding.
About the Artists:
Anne Krinsky works across analogue and digital media - painting, printmaking, photography and video. Fascinated by the ways in which built and natural structures change over time, she is working on a project about wetlands and climate change. Anne has been awarded two Grants from Arts Council England and an Artists International Development Fund Grant.
Carol Wyss examines the relationship of human structures to their surroundings, using the human skeleton as a framework. She reconfigures her etched, cast and printed imagery of bones to create dramatic three-dimensional installations. Born in Switzerland, Carol lives and works in London and in Liechtenstein and exhibits across Europe.
Susan Eyre investigates unseen forces and the activity of matter in the universe, working with print, installation and video. Her interests include intangible phenomena that cannot be explained in terms of materiality, such as the aura of place and the dream of paradise. Susan has participated in research collaborations and exhibitions with scientists across the UK.
