Yarmouth Springs Eternal: Finding and Exploring

Our exhibition is full of things to explore and find. This project is all about exploring overlooked and everyday interactions with the natural world. Read on to get another peek at the exhibition and look ahead to what we will be sharing soon.


Things to find

Jacques Nimki

Jacques works from and within the urban landscape, using mainly weeds and flowers to explore how we perceive others and ourselves within particular environments. Plants like people, looked at but not seen, forgotten in the backdrops of the everyday, inhabiting places that are usually neglected or unexplored. You can see where this inspiration has led him in his work generally and in the pieces displayed in our exhibition. Come and see if you can find all of his hidden pieces around the exhibition. They will seem to appear out of nowhere, just as plants can. (This image is a clue to where you can find your first weed in the PRIMEYARC gallery space, but the rest you’ll need to discover for yourself! )

Theatre of Posies

On the way to visit our exhibition, we’d like you to explore the spaces around you – your garden, the path outside your house or a local park – and gather together a small posie of flowers to be part of the exhibition. Bring your posie to the exhibition. On arrival, you’ll be invited to write a short note about where you collected them. Then, place your arrangement in the dedicated display.

This can be a great way to take a moment to notice what is right there on your doorstep (maybe literally!)

Remember to pick responsibly!

The Yarmouth Springs Eternal Pamphlet

As you will know from our previous blog, our community group was supported by local writer and printer Lotte LS from Red Herring Press to turn their ideas and thoughts into a pamphlet. This is now sitting in our exhibition ready for you to come and take one home! This is another example of how the exhibition has grown from those initial community walks and how it continues to grow now.

Videos

You can also catch the film created by Supporting Your Art documenting our project so far. Becky documented two workshops and combined that footage with photos taken by project facilitators and the group themselves.

For part of his artist-led walk/workshop session Mark Cator had selected a text by P H Emerson written around 1890 on the stories from the area. We each read a short passage against the watery backdrop, recorded by Mark. You can see some of this footage in the exhibition.

There is so much to find at our exhibition (some of which we haven’t mentioned and have left for you to find) and we have loved seeing your photos and reactions on social media. Make sure you tag us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to let us know what you spotted.

Coming soon!

Supporting Your Art was also documenting the conference day and we will be sharing the Artists talks in full, so you will be able to get the exciting insights we got on the day.

We will be posting on social media when these videos go live along with a few more updates and announcements to come! So keep an eye out to keep up to date.

Tickets are still available for our walks but they are booking up fast so make sure you get yours soon!
