EXHIBITION: Extraction

John Lord And Heavywater Collective

Saturday 13 July 2024 - Saturday 07 September 2024

11.00am - 4.00pm (Wednesday to Saturday) • FREE

John Lord is a master flint-knapper, one of the best and most experienced in the world. For Groundwork's Extraction programme, he is exhibiting a series of remarkable photographs of flints. These are taken with a macro-lens so we can see in detail right into the structure. What we can see are the beautiful shapes and colours which are otherwise hardly visible to the naked eye. John’s favourites are the ones which appear to echo faces or figures or animal forms, which is how he has selected his titles.

Heavy Water Collective have responded to GroundWork Gallery’s extraction theme for its summer residency programme, by presenting a body of work that brings together research developed primarily in response to the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences in Cambridge. The Heavy Water Collective make artworks that respond to archives and museum collections in order to deconstruct and reconfigure the human and more-than-human histories embedded in the British Landscape.

Visit the exhibition at Groundwork Gallery, 17 Purfleet Street, King's Lynn, Norfolk, PE30 1ER.
