Join us at Insert Studios for the first exhibition of the Shaping Spaces Residency: Splinter

Following a month in residency, visual artists Alice Card-Hall & Joseph Casey and music group Yaatri have each created a new body of work around space, surface and the interactive fragmentation of experience. Come down and experience a dynamic and interactive show that exhibits both art and music in one space.

Alice Card-Hall

Alice Card-Hall is a print-based artist focused on how print can navigate a sculptural space. She describes her practice as ‘installation print-making' and approached print in an unconventional way, exploring ideas of belonging for this medium outside the traditional gallery space.

Joseph Casey

Joseph Casey is an installation and sculpture based artist. His practice highlights the role of the audience in art making and art sharing. He uses his art to act as social experiments and guides social cues and interactions to ultimately create certain experiences for his audience.


Yaatri is an award-winning five-piece art-rock/jazz crossover group formed in Leeds in 2018. Their blend of complex composition and ethereal soundscapes captivates the heart as well as the mind. Influenced by the momentum of the rhythms of India, immersive timbres of electronic music, and the energy of rock and roll, their music has a strong sense of purpose and journey.

The opening night is Friday 16th July, 4pm-9pm. Pre-booked tickets only. All tickets are free. Maximum tickets per group are 6 tickets.
