The exhibition Man in Dark at Woodmill (8th October – 7th November 2010) explores ideas of well-being and self-betterment through the work of 10 artists from across the globe (http://www.woodmill.org/programme). With this in mind the P.A.S.T. Projects Library and Archive space has been adapted to serve as a space of contemplation and relaxation. The soothing sound of birdsong, a sofa, and low lighting provide a calm and comfortable area in which visitors can peruse exhibiting artists’ books, alternative living magazines, and self-help books. An ‘Advice Board’ has also been added to the space where visitors are asked to contribute advice relating to the relationship between art and emotional well-being, the ‘creative self’, and artistic practice. These contributions will be uploaded weekly to the P.A.S.T. Projects blog.
Here are some installation shots from the opening night:
New publications include:
Po: Beyond Yes and No, Edward de Bono
Man and His Symbols, Carl Jung
and books by exhibiting artists Lottie Cantle and Daniel Gustav Cramer.
