Time and Place

Visual Artists Jo Tunmer and Cathy Faithfull began their art collaboration three years ago, inspired by the reporting of human tragedies caused by accelerating climate change. Since they began in 2019 a lot in the world has changed, including a shift in the artists work. At the beginning of the collaboration the work was driven by climate change statistics and data but this has now shifted to incorporate elements of 'time'. The exhibition is thought-provoking and both artists will be in attendance for the duration of the event. The ticketed private preview will be held on Friday 30th September 2022.

So far this summer we have seen extreme temperatures in the UK. The clock is ticking and the need to act and slow down the accelerating pace of climate change is more urgent now than ever.

In this first collaborative exhibition the Artists use a myriad of discarded, dismantled time-pieces that allows the viewer space for their own thoughts on the past, present and future. Thousands of jigsaw pieces highlight the fractured nature of the globe, the fragment pieces hanging in the air and the numerous attempts to reunite the pieces accentuates the enormity of the task ahead.

The exhibition does not solely focus on the fragility of the planet. There are touches that proffer hope to the visitor. ‘Globe of Nations’ is a powerful piece that sees people from all over the world coming together sitting side by side in an outward facing position. ‘Earth from Space’, a giant globe with images taken from space reminds us how beautiful, but fragile, the planet is.

Where possible Jo and Cathy have used discarded, recycled materials and at times the use of plastic is intentional.
