View project on SKELF

Zoomin' is the first piece in a series of four exhibitions on the theme of 'Gesture' and exploring what this might mean in a virtual context. Each exhibition has been created specifically for Skelf, working with artists whose practice often relies upon a physical encounter, and reimagining their work immaterially to see what further possibilities are presented.

"We have been meeting nearly every Friday from 11:00am until 12:30pm, starting on 10th Nov 2020. Connected over video calls, we catch-up, paint and draw alongside one another whilst listening to music, and then show each other what we have made that day.

Working in a time of so many unknowns, it offered a gesture of support, solidarity and consistency; giving each other the time and space to create, share and dance. This is an attempt to condense a year’s worth of us working alongside one another.

We now want to offer this same gesture to you - we invite you to watch these videos, play with the images, work alongside us and listen to music."
