DEEP TIME Exhibition
An exhibition and collaboration between Linda Hemmersbach and percussionist James Field at Old Bank Residency, Manchester in 2019, exploring the possibilities of painting through animation, sound, and site-specific installation.
Inspired by a recent journey to Assynt in the Scottish Highlands, the works explore notions of geological time and processes, the continual changes of the earth, and ancient landscapes.
Throughout the exhibition, a sense of shifting and moving of elements is implied through the use of multi-part compositional structures and arrangements. Subtle dualities within the work suggest fragmentation and continuity, fluidity and solidity, immediacy and the ungraspable; evoking a psychological and atmospheric space.
The drawn, painted and sculpted forms conjure up an invisible world below the threshold of perception – attempting to visualise how forces and energy interrelate and giving shape to hidden configurations.
