Now We Have Met
17 Jun 2017 - 25 Jun 2017
PREVIEW Friday 16.06.17 | 7.30-9.30pm
‘Now We Have Met’ is a project by Naomi Gilby that takes as its central premise a plethora of anonymous handwritten poetry, collected over many years and only ever read by the artist; until now. This project is about interactions and connections both physical and virtual, the difference between place and space, and how people connect over subject matter.
Through installation, sound and performance ‘Now We Have Met’ will use the intimate domestic environment of BasementArtsProject as a space for reflection and communion; a place in which old memories can be recalled and new ones created. Gilby’s practice is one of social engagement that encourages the building of relationships between people and place through the lens of her artwork.
Naomi Gilby is a cross-disciplinary artist based in Leeds, who is currently studying a Masters in Art & Design at Leeds Beckett University. She uses installation, sound and performance to create ambiguous yet inviting works, encouraging viewers to reflect on their own human interactions and memories. Gilby’s work often encompasses text and the notion of DIY.
Gilby has exhibited nationally & internationally, including: Finland, Estonia, Berlin & Macedonia.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
