To: 30th March 2024 6:00 pm


Primary, 33 Seely Road, Nottingham, UK




PREVIEW: Thursday 29 February, 6-9PM
EXHIBITION: 1 March – 30 March 2024
OPENING TIMES: Thursday – Saturday, 10am-6PM, or by appointment.

Each Begets Each is a collaborative exhibition of new work by Khaya Job and Wingshan Smith. Together, they delve into realms of friendship, myth-making, play, rituals, conversations and sound to weave a tapestry of interconnected experiences. By interrogating and performing archetypes of femininity, the pair engage in the audacious task of imagining a divinity for themselves to create new possibilities for identity and community.

The exhibition features three monolith light boxes which emit images of the artists, adopting the visual language of advertising, fashion, and shrines. Alongside this work, a moving image piece journeys to the Nine Ladies Stone Circle. Here, Job and Smith channel the energy of the legendary nine maidens, who, for their daring dance one night at the Sabbath, were turned to stone. In an act of homage, the artists revisit this sacred site, engaging in a ceremonial dance of synchronicity and exchange.

The audience is encouraged to immerse themselves in a communion of prompts, activities, and tarot cards. Each Begets Each extends an invitation to transcend boundaries and explore the divine within, to collectively shape a space where new mythologies and profound understandings of our power to enact change can emerge.

Each Begets Each was developed through Artist Development initiative To and Fro (2023-24). This pilot project paired four Primary residents or members with four non-resident artists who connect with our Public Programme.
