Forming Words

14 February – 17 May 2013Forming Words - Flow


Text forms part of our daily lives. Road signs, headlines and advertisement communicate with people without making a sound. In perhaps more thoughtful text, words enclosed in novels, type in a newspaper article or the verse of a poem can be a source of deep inspiration.
Flow’s forthcoming exhibition Forming Words is based on how form and structure can be inspired by text. Flow has asked selected artists to create new work based on a piece of writing of their choice, from poetry to a letter to lyrics. Whether it is the shapes, lines and curves which letters create that inspire the work, as in vibrant wall pieces by Debbie Smyth that motivate the work. Or simply the fluidity of the writing, artists exploring this theme express the diverse approaches and outcomes this one theme can manifest. Many of the artists have chosen to utilise the meaning of their selected text or the message that the text communicates to inform their work. Other artists, such as Aino Kajaniemi take a personal approach to using text with particular memories woven in thread.
The work in this exhibition traverses disciplines. Jewellery will be exhibited alongside silver teacups, ceramic vessels and enamel plates. The variety in material has resulted in an exhibition that intends to capture the endless inspiration of the written word.Clare Hillerby - brooch Walthamstow to Birmingham - silver, paper, perspex, gold, blue green mapClare Hillerby – Brooch
