4th November – 5th December at Bank Street Arts
Hoard is an Artist’s book in the form of an installation of approx 200 slip cast ceramic 35mm film canisters, each containing a page with a single monoprint. Based upon Angela’s collection of lost (found) gloves, the book is not a record of the collection but a creative and sculptural response. Each print is completely unique and represents a moment, a trace, a glimpse of a single found item.
Pushing the boundaries of the concept of the book into an installation, the repetition and rhythm of the piece is reminiscent of poetry or prose.
Angela Tait and Ian Clegg are a photographer and sculptor who have been working together on creative projects since 2010. Their work often combines our two disparate disciplines, however, this artists book was created in response to Angela’s collection of 200+ lost (found) gloves and explores the artists’ propensity to ‘hoard’.
