Over the Hill and Back Round Again – William Foulds
| 13th & 14th May | free | 11am – 4pm |
William Foulds presents a micro exhibition of mixed-media artworks documenting the dilapidation and reinvigoration of community in Sheffield’s Park Hill estate.
Join us for the launch of William’s exhibition on Friday 13th of May, 6pm – 8pm. Free entry.
Over the Hill and Back Round Again looks at the attempt to reassemble community through the renovation of the Park Hill Estate, orchestrated by Urban Splash, and its current state of partial dereliction.
The exhibition will include a collection of images gathered between January 2015 and April 2016 that show the more apparent physical barriers between both sides of the estate. Mixed resources and equipment allowed Foulds to experiment during the printing process, and some prints from his will be sold exclusively at Bank Street Arts during the launch.
Also included in the exhibition are two experimental short videos: Lift Up the Hill and Broken Windows. The videos will be projected and merged with concrete or plastered textures, blending into the room’s design, with a composed audio score played alongside.
Lift Up the Hill was recorded over an hour in a single-take and documents the use of one of Park Hill’s two front facing glass elevators, with views of the city centre.
Broken Windows is a single-take video piece demonstrating the broken façade, as a broken window’s covering is left torn and hanging in the wind.
