Reference Point is the culmination of a 6-week residency by Amy Gillies and Chloe Hurst at One Paved Court. The exhibition includes projection, painting, embroidery, print and performance.
How do we collect and mediate information? The artists have explored this theme through a research-based project that began by investigating various individual testimonies: Stanley William Renwick, a surgical appliance maker and former inhabitant of One Paved Court, Donald Ward, a poet, and Joseph McQueen a union mineworker, antecedents of Amy and Chloe respectively. The artists have spent the six week residency developing the material into an exhibition that questions how we receive, perceive and understand information and the political implications of these questions.
Reference Point explores the variety of ways that artists can interpret data, imagery and sound to create new work, expanding the methods with which we communicate narratives.
Amy Gillies and Chloe Hurst have produced Reference Point in collaboration with The II Platform (Andria Kyriakidou and Shahrzad Jahan), Bronwen Sharp and Maria Celina Val.
