An exciting new exhibition by Victoria Lucas has opened at Wirksworth’s Haarlem Artspace.
A new site-responsive solo exhibition by Sheffield-based artist Victoria Lucas has opened at Haarlem Artspace, Wirksworth. Where Rock & Hard Place Meet will run for three consecutive weekends from 1 September – 15 September to coincide with Wirksworth Festival.
Where Rock & Hard Place Meet is presented as an installation that combines a variety of media, including video, sculpture and photography, the project has been developed during a month-long art residency at Haarlem Artspace. Reclaiming an island of physical space as a form of playful protest, the exhibition investigates culturally engrained representations of femininity using local sites and stories as a backdrop.
The opening included large-scale projections on the outside of Haarlem Mill by The Collaborators (Kate Genever and Steve Pool). Video works by a selection of artists as well as Victoria Lucas were also shown.
During opening weekends, the exhibition can be seen 10am – 4pm. On Saturday 15 September, 11am–1pm, there will be a special seminar with Victoria Lucas in conversation with Curator, Haarlem Artspace co-director Olivia Punnett. More details can be found on the Haarlem Artspace website.
