Industrialised: Art in Manufacturing in the Gallery
MetadataShow full item record
International artists uncover the humanity, brutality and ingenuity of factory production in a rare gathering of work exploring mankind and manu-facturing in INDUSTRIALISED. Featuring work unexhibited in the UK to date and providing a rare, multi-disciplinary view of the making industries, mass production, the human contribution to manufacturing and the physical impacts of factory making on our landscape. Ceramic pieces resulting from a 2016 collaboration between André Stitt and Chrisoula Konstantakou, titled: The Skelmers-dale Ceramic Collection recalls a jet age era of hope and civic reengineering in England, drawing on a series of 1960s under-pass reliefs in the Lancashire ‘new town’, created by then-resident artist, Mike Cumiskey. Taking patterns from the surviving, original public artworks, Stitt and Chrisoula’s suite of handmade and digital laser etched sculptures immortalise Cumiskey’s vulnerable original.
