Victoria Lucas ‘Where Rock & Hard Place Meet






For this years Wirksworth Festival (7–23 September 2018), alongside Haarlem Artspace’s resident artists open studios, will be a new body of site-responsive work from Victoria Lucas. Presented as an installation that combines a variety of media, including video, sculpture and photography, the project has been developed during a month-long art residency at Haarlem Artspace. Reclaiming an island of physical space as a form of playful protest, the exhibition investigates culturally engrained representations of femininity using local sites and stories as a backdrop.

The exhibition will open at Haarlem Artspace in Wirksworth on Friday 31 August at 7pm, with large scale projections on the outside of Haarlem Mill by The Collaborators (Kate Genever and Steve Pool). Video works by a selection of artists as well as Victoria Lucas will be shown.

The exhibition will be open for 3 consecutive weekends, culminating in a seminar on Saturday 15 September, 11am–1pm, where Victoria Lucas and Curator, Haarlem Artspace co director Olivia Punnett will be in conversation.

‘Where Rock & Hard Place Meet’ will then travel to Bloc Projects in Sheffield between the 19–22 September, with a private view on Thursday 20 September 6–8pm.
