Digswell Arts alumna Jane Glynn and current Fellow Elizabeth Murton are showing work in the exhibition ‘Fluid Time’ at Mill Green Museum, Hatfield Herts (Thursdays to Sundays) until the 2nd October 2022.
Two artists working in different ways have attempted to grapple with the question ‘What is the sense of time?’
Glynn’s work interrogates the ongoing rhythms of time passing, capturing pieces of each day through meditative drawing or making tasks that link each day to one year and each year to the growing timeline. Her handmade books explore connections between memory and chronological time.
Murton’s work is interested in the stories we tell ourselves to understand the world. Grounded in materiality, for instance ancient weaving techniques that link us with people from the distant past. She is inspired by connections: between material ideas, people across time and stories, ideas and processes which link us across time to others – such as textile processes, historical female figures, myth, and ancient knowledges. Murton’s work appears as if in a process of change, and invites physical interventions from the audience, as well as the responses of materials to time; moments in this constant flux are captured in drawings, sculpture and installation.
12.00 – 4.00 Sunday 2nd October
To close the exhibition dancers from Beee Creative will be animating two pieces of the work in the garden through short dance performances (between 1.00 and 2.00). There will also be free craft activities all day, along with an opportunity to visit the exhibition, museum and working water mill and cafe. Please join us.
