Description

Opening Friday night 12 March at 7pm is the Main Space exhibition, Night Ladder. This collaborative project between poet and artist Angela Gardner and printmakers Gwenn Tasker and Lisa Pullen sees mythology as a ‘concentration of truths’ for both societal and personal interpretation. Gwenn and Lisa have created artwork in response to two suites of Angela’s poems: Night Ladder, an edgy rewriting of fairy stories; and The Twelve Labours, in which the Labours of Hercules are re-imagined and heroism reframed. Both sets of poems deal fundamentally with issues of the human condition that transcend time and culture. They strive to evoke associations and reflections around the issues of gender, authority, violence and the relationship between the human and the rest of the natural world to provoke both philosophical and ethical questions in the viewers.
