The Sunday Spot: Nicola Pomery

SUN 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 OCT 2016, 2-4PM, CLORE STUDIO, FREE

Overview

For the Sunday Spot in October, join artist Nicola Pomery to build a continuously evolving portrait of everyone and anyone who takes part in the workshops. Over five weeks, children will playfully study and record one another using drawing, printmaking and sound. This might include the smallest of details such as a delicate birth mark, to a beautiful mass of tumbling hair or the large imprint of a size 12 bare foot. 

Children are invited to draw freckle constellations and eye-lash movements, turn off the lights and use torches to reveal veins and track them through mark-making. The sounds of bodies will also be observed as workshop members draw to the noise of one another’s clicking jaws, breath and heartbeats, plus any other wonderfully weird noises unique to them.

All sessions are inclusive, for more information on access to the gallery please read here.

 

Please note that you don’t have to attend all five sessions to take part. The Sunday Spot is an ongoing series of free, drop-in family activities which takes place every Sunday from 2-4pm, suitable for children aged 3-12 years. 

Supported by the Nina and Roger Stewart Charitable Trust.

 

Nicola Pomery is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is rooted in process, observation and site-specific inquiry. Interested in movement, sound and patterns of behaviour, Nicola sets up intuitive and subtle systems to record, re-codify and respond to everyday life. Previous works have imitated the movements of insects through mark-marking, performed repetitive actions such as the continuous walking of a flight of stairs until there is no sense of the journey’s beginning or end, and filming the actions of a roundabout over a 24-hour period.   

Nicola is currently collaborating with artist Sandra Keating to develop a photographic and video series in response to the Thames Estuary, South Essex.
