How might a performance last an entire year? How do we mark time and how does it mark us? How do we document time? How can we make the time to make art?
Artists Jonathan Raisin & Elizabeth Willow were commissioned in 2009-10 to spend a year creating a garden in the grounds of Lancaster University; a place in which to respond to change; to follow the seasons; to mark and be marked by the passing of time.
As an outcome from the project, we are curating a group exhibition (Time Pieces) and an archive (Gathering Time), which runs in the Peter Scott Gallery from 3 March-2 April 2011), alongside the publication of an artists' book. We are also hosting a national artists symposium to explore more broadly the theme of duration in contenporary arts practice (see WHAT"S ON sections for details).
