Kate Liston: Feel After the New See
The first in a series of annual site-specific commissions
Until Saturday 19 May
Monday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm
Free entry, donations welcome
A new commission by Newcastle-based artist Kate Liston marks the first in a series of annual site-specific projects responding to the unique architecture and remarkable history of the Hatton Gallery, as well as its pivotal role in international innovations in exhibition design and installation art.
Feel After the New See will transform the most historic gallery space within the Hatton into an immersive installation, which will become the setting for a new film work taking shape throughout the exhibition.
The installation is inspired by the work of German artist Ella Bergmann-Michel whose work was exhibited in Newcastle in the 1960s and 70s, and who later donated a collage to the Hatton Gallery.
The film which, will be developed during the exhibition, features footage of Newcastle shot by the artist, reflecting the city’s past and future, combined with footage of miniature versions of the artist’s larger installation, and other references to Ella Bergmann-Michel’s own drawings, collages and film work.
