Fallow Fields

Fal­low Fields is a new exhi­bi­tion bring­ing togeth­er work by five artists in a space’ arts 2022 Turn­ing Point’ Bur­sary programme

Fallow Fields is a new exhibition bringing together work by five artists in ‘a space’ arts 2022 ‘Turning Point’ Bursary programme: Jennifer Anyan, Tracy Dovey, Elizabeth Hammond & Maija Liepens, and Linn O’Carroll.
‘Fallow’ is a farming technique in which arable land is left unsown for a period to regenerate and become replenished with vital nutrients needed to grow future crops.

Over the last 6 months, the 2022 Turning Point Bursary recipients have undertaken a fallow period of self-led artistic experimentation, development and risk-taking to push beyond existing boundaries within their practices and yield new ways of working. The programme encourages working without the pressure to produce specific outcomes or ‘finished’ artwork.

In the tradition of influential historical process-related exhibitions starting with Harald Szeeman’s 1969 Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, which asked questions about the role of the artist, the curator and the exhibition itself, Fallow Fields kicks off ‘a space’ arts 2023 programme which will intermittently use our galleries as active spaces or labs in which to make work, experiment and test ideas embracing the role of the arts organisation in making visible the processes and development of the practitioners it works with.

Fallow Fields is on display at God’s House Tower from Friday 27th January – Sunday 5th March 2023 and is free to visit.

You’re also invited to celebrate the launch of Fallow Fields, and hear from the exhibiting artists at our launch event on Friday 27th January 2023 from 6pm – 8pm at God’s House Tower.
