Friday 25 March - Saturday 25 June

GroundWork Gallery, King's Lynn

Free event

Seeking & investigating; searching & finding; assembling & combining; wrapping & binding. These are some of the activities undertaken by artist group haptic/tacit. FieldWork describes their process of active research, analytical and methodical, exploring and learning, out and about in their surroundings. What they make is based on close observation. But it is also crafted from what they find and discover. Through deep concentration and attention to detail, they reveal what normally goes un-noticed.

haptic/tacit is a cooperative of artists who invite new collaborators each time they exhibit. Like GroundWork Gallery they aim to make art from the environment and about the environment.

For FieldWork, the original members Jane Cairns, Kim Norton and Grant Aston have invited Nicky Hirst, Annie Woodford and Robert Cooper to collaborate and show with them.

The exhibition will feature sculpture, assemblages, images: works made in clay, wood, found china fragments, earth, photography. A special text is being commissioned from writer and film-maker, John Rogers, author of This Other London.

Chris Drury’s Spore Print ‘Dust to Dust’ will remain painted on the wall in the shadowy background of the exhibition.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
