Fri 12th June, 17.00 – 19.30pm
(Also open on Tue 16th, Wed 17th and Thu 18th June, 13.00 – 16.00pm)
To celebrate the launch of the Hannah Festival in the north, In Certain Places presents ‘Open House’ – an evening of artworks, interventions and performances by artists Bonnie Craig, Claire Tindale, Steph Fletcher and Cherry Tenneson, in our base in a terraced house on St Peters Street, Preston.
Cherry Tenneson will exhibit a series of limited-edition prints from ‘outward journeys must not be in the past’ – a series of signs and posters installed in Preston’s transport hubs, which will be available to purchase on the night for an affordable price. Steph Fletcher will be recruiting more people to her Anxious Workers Club, as part of her twentyfourzero project, looking at the nature of modern work. Bonnie Craig, ensconced at the house since the beginning of June, will present a new site-specific work applied to the architecture of the house, using pattern not as decoration but as design itself; and Claire Tindale will exhibit some of her miniature interiors, which juxtapose against the scale of the house.
‘Open House’ forms part of Preston’s contribution to the Hannah Festival and Directory – an annual publication and website, profiling some of the most interesting and inspiring cultural projects in the north of England. Following the ‘Open House’ event on Friday 12th, Saturday 13th sees the celebrations continue with the Harris Museum & Art Gallery’s Dying Matters activities and Birley Artist Studio’s Georgianna Cardoso Ainsworth exhibition.
