Exhibition: Naomi Gilby | Pleasure
The work of Naomi Gilby reveals and amplifies details of a highly personal nature about the artist. It is work that reflects life experiences as an artist and as an individual. Her work is not just confined to the self but also reveals something of how we experience and interact with the world around us.
In her 2017 exhibition for BasementArtsProject entitled Now We Have Met, Gilby pulled the focus in on the life of objects associated with her work as a performance artist in Leeds. For her 2018 exhibition Pleasure she returns to the place in which she grew up, presenting a selection of images and sculptural works that suggest the sights, sounds and smells of her home town of Blackpool. As with past works the exhibition will present Gilby’s ideas and experiences from a singular point of view but will be instantly recognisable to anyone that has grown up in a seaside town.
Exhibition remains open to the general public 2.30pm until 4pm on this day then . . .
Sunday 16th September | 2pm – 4pm
