From the people who brought you RUST, SALT, TAR, SMOKE, KNOT and GRIT, we bring you GRAIN, our latest adventure in a series of award winning exhibitions that bring together a group of contemporary artists to produce works based on simple elemental themes.
The grain of timber, leather, paper, cloth, wheat, barley and rice. Of common sense and truth. There are 20 grains in a scruple, 60 in a dram and 480 in an ounce. It's the smallest possible quantity; hint, suspicion, tinge, iota, smidgen. It's essential for whisky, photography, bread, urban planning, archery, dashboard decoration, raising chickens and feeding North Korean Zombies. We will bring you grist to the Mill, against the grain and all with a grain of salt.
The seventh in a series of exhibitions that explore the digressions and tangents of a single-word elemental theme, GRAIN comes to you from inside the Packing Shed at Hart’s Mill.
The exhibition is in part of the Mill buildings that had been inaccessible for decades (we first opened it up last year with our exhibition GRIT), providing a very appropriate setting for this year’s theme of ‘grain’.
Never predictable, often accidental, sometimes unruly and provocative, always pretty wonderful.
