fold: Sharon Haward, an exhibition of assemblages and objects inspired by Modernist architecture

Visual artist Sharon Haward will be exhibiting a range of assemblages and objects inspired by Modernist architecture and the contributions made to it by female and male architects and designers. The work on show has been created during a short residency at Rye Creative Centre.

Fold is the outcome of a number of residencies and visits to Modernist villas in Europe including Villa Stenersen in Oslo, The Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht, Sonneveld House in Rotterdam and her many years experience delivering gallery education at the De La Warr Pavilion. Haward explores the tensions between the rational, heroic and transparent architecture sought by male Modernist architects and the role they often assigned to women as mere decorators of male structures. Velvet and silk are used alongside rigid wooden structures to test and play with these assumptions in an attempt to disrupt such associations.

fold WORKSHOP and PANEL DISCUSSION

On Saturday 26 May there will be two activities which will enable the public to get involved in working site specifically.
Please email Sharon directly (sharonhaward@hotmail.com)to book a place on the workshop.

From 10am – 1pm on 26 May, there will be a 3 hour workshop where the building and its environs will be used as a sensory stimulus for mapping, drawing and text based activities which will be compiled into an artists book.

At 2pm, 26 May, Haward will chair a panel discussion with independent curator Christine Gist and artists Nicole Zaaroura and Louise Kenwood exploring the process of researching and creating site-specific work and on curating projects with British and European partners at a range of non-gallery venues, sites and locations in the UK and abroad.
