In Conversation with Laura Ellen Bacon

Tomorrow evening I'm in conversation with the lovely Laura Ellen Bacon at Siobhan Davies Dance as part of their Human Nature season. Laura is  known for her intricately woven large scale spaces using willow.

The evening begins at 7pm and we will be discussing the crossovers between Space, Scale and Site.

Kim Norton in conversation with Laura Ellen Bacon

You are invited to a special conversation exploring the new exhibition by ceramicist Kim Norton onFriday 25 July7pm.
Siobhan Davies Studios
85 St. George's Road
London SE1 6ER
In Lines, Levels, Layers ceramicist Kim Norton dissects our perceptions of daily life and interactions with nature. Kim looks at clay as a material before it becomes an object, as a life-giving property to plants and something which is integral to all living matter. The exhibition invites the viewer to look more closely at the materials around us, under our feet and within our visual landscapes, encompassing the different smells, colours and textures of clay and soil gathered from locations around Southwark.
Sculptor Laura Ellen Bacon creates site-specific willow sculptures in urban and landscape settings such as Chatsworth House, Somerset House and New Art Centre at Roche Court. Laura weaves together willow to make spaces that can be intimate like nests or that reflect movement and structural growth at a human scale.
Kim and Laura will speak about crossovers in their work and the similar and differing processes on working site-specifically.
This event is FREE but please RSVP to or call Reception on 020 7091 9650.
Exhibition Dates: Friday 18 July – Sunday 21 September
Kim Norton Exhibition Tour: Tuesday 16 September, 2-3pm
We very much look forward to seeing you there.

Siobhan Davies Dance: Growing Season 2014

 In December 2013 I was approached by Alison Proctor the Programme and Producing Manager at  Siobhan Davies Dance in South London for a meeting regarding their upcoming exhibition programme for 2014 called The Growing Season.

Throughout 2014 the studio will be host and curate a series of exhibitions, presentations, workshops and performances based around growth, plants, gardens and gardening. 
Here's a link to Human - Nature

I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful project and to be involved with such a fantastic group of people who are looking after me throughout this process. 
The exhibition will open 17th July - 28th September. 

Over the next few months I will be posting my work in progress and my journey as this project begins to unfold and develop.
