Collaboration Between P.A.S.T. Projects and Elena Bajo.

For the second exhibition at The Woodmill P.A.S.T. Projects are working with exhibiting artist Elena Bajo to reactivate the former incarnation of the P.A.S.T. Projects space as The Woodmill Building’s Mail Room.

This collaboration will look at the past and present manifestations of the P.A.S.T. Projects space by examining how information is, and has been, organised and delivered through the space, and how this information is maintained within the community’s collective memory.

A select group of artists, curators, writers and musicians have been asked to interpret the relationship between space, time and memory and their parameters within social space, and to mail their responses to the P.A.S.T. Projects space within The Woodmill.

These contributions, which may take the form of letters, photographs, drawings etc., will be received throughout the duration of Bajo’s exhibition (21.04.2010 - 23.05.2010) and will be displayed in the P.A.S.T. Projects space.

The initial responses will be exhibited at the opening of Elena Bajo's solo show at The Woodmill on Wednesday 21st April 2010, 7.00 - 9.30pm.

Focusing on precise moments of disruption and change Elena Bajo presents new work in response to the social, political and technological histories of the Woodmill site. In it's current incarnation the building has recently been turned into artists' studios and galleries, but it has previously been, among other things, a council office building, a stables, a bus depot and a wheelwright.

In Bajo's work the material conditions of redevelopment and regeneration, the waste generated from urban renewal, the 'stuff' of social change, combine with a performative and ongoing historical document of the local urban landscape to produce dispersed sculptural assemblages and installations that open out on to an investigation of universal political forms.
