‘Net Curtains’ Site Specific Installation

Deadline: July 24, 2013 (EMAIL)

‘Net Curtains’
Site Specific Installation

Thelma Hulbert Gallery
Honiton, Devon
4th and 5th of September 2013

The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Devon is looking for women to be part of an exciting installation project taking part in September.

Artist Andrea Stokes has been invited to create an installation at the gallery and the gallery is looking for enthusiastic women to help out.

‘Net Curtains’ is a site specific project which will bring together local women in the creation of an ambitious art installation that inhabits the whole of the Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Honiton, Devon. The gallery is a late Georgian town house formerly the home and studio of artist Thelma Hulbert.

Artist Andrea Stokes has been invited to create an installation at the gallery as part of ‘intoLACE’, an exhibition bringing together artists whose work references lace and runs from 14th September – 2nd November 2013 in partnership with Devon Guild of Craftsmen. The installation will be a drawing that appears to fill the whole building and engages with the house and its histories, incorporating designs from traditional Honiton lace – a craft the town is renowned for since the 17th century.

The installation will cover the inside of every window in the gallery and will be visible from inside and out. The drawing will have the delicate quality of lace and will create the illusion of ‘net curtains’ in all the windows of the house with one continuous line/thread that travels and weaves over the entire space.

A team of 24 local women will transfer the design onto the windows during a two-day event. Each participant will be paid £250 for taking part. All women over 18 are welcome to apply, priority will be given to women who live in the East Devon region. No prior experience or artistic skills required.

The dates for the project are 4th and 5th of September 2013. To take part you must be available on both of these days and be happy to be photographed during the event. Selection will be by application form and short informal interviews. The deadline for applications is 12pm on Wednesday 24th July and interviews will take place on Monday 29th July.
