NOW In the KALEIDOSCOPE GALLERY
Sarah Cliffe Artist in Residence
The Ballard of Gibbet Hill
2 – 19 October
Sarah Cliff’s practice springs from an interest in the seductive influence of culture and power on history, expressed through the assemblage of objects, printed images and text.
The Ballad of Gibbet Hill, is an installation of prints, text and objects examining eighteenth century decadence, power and brutality. During the exhibition, Sarah will be on a three week residency at the gallery and museum, developing work from selected museum objects, and running printmaking activities, sponsored by Ochre Print Studio, Guildford.
Working in collaboration with the recently appointed Curator at Sevenoaks Museum, Liz Botterill, objects from the museum have been selected to form part of the installation. Using a small-scale printmaking facility, Sarah will produce and display new work that responds to these objects.
Artist talk 10th October 6 – 8
Sarah will give an artist’s talk on 10th October at 6pm on The Ballad of Gibbet Hill and the influence on her work of 18th century poet and printmaker, William Blake. All welcome.
