The Goldsmiths Textile Collection and Constance Howard Gallery are pleased to present an exhibition by artists, Lucy Renton, Danica Maier and Andrew Bracey
The Bummock is the large part of an iceberg hidden beneath the surface of the sea. The exhibition at the Constance Howard Gallery is the result of a residency that researched unseen parts of the Lace Archive, Nottingham as catalysts for the creation of new artworks. The aim of the wider project, led by artists Danica Maier and Andrew Bracey, was to create artistic responses to unseen or undervalued parts of archives to generate new readings, knowledge and artworks.
Artists Bracey, Maier and Lucy Renton spent two and half years rummaging, exploring and making. Artworks were created as a response to the Lace Archive and will now be shown alongside objects selected by the artists from the Goldsmiths Textiles Collection in the third iteration of this touring exhibition. Their rummage of the Goldsmiths Textile Collection was directed by the parameters of their artistic practices developed during their residency at the Lace Archive.
The public opening of the exhibition will feature a live performance by clarinettist, Jonathan Sage, of Score: Mechanical Asynchronicity by Maier and Scheuregger. On the night Bummock: The Lace Archive publication will be available to purchase for a special discounted price. It features essays by Pennina Barnett, Fiona Curran, Janis Jefferies, Sian Vaughan and interviews with the artists.
