Two Shores (extract)

Rebecca Geldard, London 2019

Two Shores is an exhibition of new text and sculptural works, exploring the process of being between states and places. Taking different material approaches to the journey, collectively, these works communicate a sense of territory shared, offering many connected routes around and liminal zones between a variety of points and borders

'Two Shores’ references many aspects of physical or metaphorical passage and the systems that allow for the movement of people, goods and ideas – from canals to building blueprints and palindromes. Notions of what it means to belong are made palpable through particular motifs or means of manufacture: for example, the rickety branch-like extensions of dowling-rod fragments.
