Almost a Swan

Almost a Swan exhibition work Venue: Banks Mill Studios, 71 Bridge Street, Derby, DE1 3LB

Event date: Wednesday, 31 January 2018 at 10.00 AM
Running until: Friday, 23 February 2018 at 3.00 PM

In February, Banks Mill affiliate member, Gerry Henegan Barr, will exhibit work in the ground floor foyer gallery. Using poignant humour to deliver an ECO related message, Gerry’s 3D ceramic work, combined with a variety of recycled materials ranging from chicken wire, a tyre, and sculpted wicker, warns of what happens if we leave it too late to care about what is precious in life, while it still exists, rather than having to sadly, retrospectively, repent at its loss.

ALMOST A SWAN reflects on a post apocalyptic vision of an environmentally ravaged earth. Humans and their animal space arks have left our planet, taking only useful creatures with them...... Meanwhile, charged with making earth habitable again, robot custodians, (whose programming has become corrupted and somewhat literal in interpretation), attempt to construct a SWAN MUSEUM.... A vain attempt to commemorate one of the many beautiful creatures that have perished. The custodians eagerly await a new generation of earthlings, (who have never encountered a real swan), to admire their exhibits, and learn some facts about their subject.

Gerry invites you to meet her at a free private view in the foyer on Sun 11th Feb 2018 from 3pm-6pm. The exhibition can also be viewed from 31 Jan - 23 Feb week days 10am-3pm (please ring 01332 597866 in advance if making a special journey)

Access via ramp entrance, wheelchair accessible with free on street Sunday parking and small weekly charges.
