“The work of art is born of the artist in a mysterious and secret way. From here it gains life and being. Nor is its existence casual and inconsistent, but it has a definite purposeful strength, alike in its material and spiritual life. It exists and has power to create spiritual atmosphere…” 1
The artworks in this exhibition are created by artists first brought together during Studiobook17, an artist development programme produced by Mark Devereux Projects. The exhibition will seek to evoke the creative spirit of shared experience and mark, what will be the second anniversary of their performative reading RELATION(S) intertwined immersive lasting performed at Chetham’s Library Reading Room in Manchester.
