Event details

We’re delighted to welcome artist Frances Richardson to discuss her exhibition Not even nothing is free of ghosts at Cross Lane Projects. Frances Richardson is the winner of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award for 2017/18.

The event will consist of a walk-through tour of the exhibition led by the artist, introducing individual works and taking questions from the audience.

Marking a significant development in Richardson’s practice, the exhibition Not even nothing can be free of ghosts presents a group of new works referencing the image of water and water’s metaphorical use to suggest state of mind. The artist is fascinated by the potential of things and places to hold information that is not explicit or measurable by traditional observation. Her new work aims to provoke a visceral as well as intellectual response in the viewer. Frances Richardson’s exhibition has been developed over the period of a year, as the 15th winner of the Mark Tanner Sculpture Award.
