SHELLEY CAMPBELL MAKING RESIDENCY
7 - 13 January 2019
Join us on Wednesday 9 January, 12:30 - 1.30pm at Hardwick Gallery for a Q&A with Shelley Campbell.
Gallery open: 10am - 4pm weekdays; 11am - 3pm weekend. All welcome.
Shelley Campbell is a PhD student at the University of Gloucestershire. Her research is concerned with the biblical story of Ruth. “Over the past six months I’ve engaged in stitching activities with the Sahara Saheli (Welcome Friends) group in Cheltenham, originally a community of Bangladeshi women, now an expanded group of women who consist of those who were not born in the UK. I have photographed the women of the Sahara Saheli group in groups of threes sitting at their stitching/weaving table. It is a long and narrow ‘Last Supper’ composition that will be displayed in the gallery. Squares of weaving are made by participants including the Sahara Saheli group and the exhibition-viewing public. In the production of woven squares, where each unique piece is a part of its larger construction, each maker is undertaking a performance that represents their unique participation. The woven blocks will cover and ‘pixelate’ the original photograph.”
