Laura Ford, Jacqueline Poncelet

A Stranger Here Myself

11 December 1998 - 31 January 1999

These two artists are individually renowned for their innovative and challenging approach to  materials and methods of making. The galleries will be ‘dressed’ using elements of photography, painting and sculpture to create a richly decorated environment. Jacqueline Poncelet works with the wall and floor surfaces, covering them with a skin of repeating, reverberating pattern. Laura Ford’s Chintz Girls, frozen in a moment of dancing pleasure, together with a menagerie of stitched and wool-clad animals, neither life-like nor toy-like, inhabit the spaces.

Exhibition funded by The Henry Moore Foundation, The Po-Shing Woo Charitable Foundation, London Arts Board and special donations; with additional support from BPB Formula and East London Gypsum Distribution Ltd, Middlesex University, Camberwell College of Art and Harvey Maria Ltd. The exhibition will tour to Wolsey Art Gallery, Christchurch Mansion, Ipswich: 5 June - 18 July 1999
