Mon -Fri 10am – 4pm
Saturday 23 March 11am – 2pm
Lahive and Roberts’ artistic practice’s place importance on the process of making. This collection of work, inspired by physicist Carlo Rovelli’s writings, responds to the idea that the nature of life is process.
“The world is not a collection of things, it is a collection of events. The difference between things and events is that thigs persist in time, events have a limited duration. A stone is a prototypical ‘thing’: we can ask ourselves where it will be tomorrow…The world is made up of networks of kisses not stones.” – Carlo Rovelli, The Order of Time
This is the first time that Hertford Regional College are welcoming artists from outside the college to exhibit in the David Gentleman Gallery. The artists will be giving a talk about their work on the specially arranged Saturday opening on 23 March at 11.30am.
