Overview

Tools for Survival: A conversation between artists Jenny Pope, Liz Douglas and Felicity Bristow

For this exhibition the artists will create new work that investigates ‘tools for survival’ with a specific focus on the rural environment of the Scottish Borders, using artefacts from the Hawick Museum archive and other relevant sources to question and challenge notions in a contemporary visual context.

Liz Douglas:
Her working practice involves researching material from the landscape at macro and micro level in order to make artwork using materials that resonate with her ideas. Liz Douglas acknowledges support towards this project from a Visual Artist and Craft Maker Award: South of Scotland 2019 in partnerships with Creative Scotland.

Jenny Pope:
A visual artist producing a range of work from small delicate objects to large-scale sculptural pieces. At the core of her practice is experimentation with the limits and possibilities of materials such as porcelain, ink, felt, textiles and paper.

Felicity Bristow:
Visual artist Felicity Bristow has been exploring through her practice the complexities of the ‘analogue book’ in abstract and developing the themes of transformation and abstraction of the book as an object. The sculptural pieces she makes act as physical or visual tools for interpreting architectural spaces, the landscape or physical movement which maybe geological or human.

Admission is free, donations welcome.
