DISPLAYS DURING WHY WE LEFT THE VILLAGE AND CAME BACK

Filed under: Uncategorized — ruralartspace @ 10:00 am

We selected the three village projects by the three myvillages.org members Kathrin Böhm, Antje Schiffers and Wapke Feenstra to showcase in the three exhibition spaces associated with the mediamaker arts programme:
Belmont Art Centre
Music Hall Gallery
Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery

myvillages.org is an international artist initiative set up by Kathrin Böhm (Ger/UK), Wapke Feenstra (NL) and Antje Schiffers(Ger). It is an informal framework for ideas and new art projects that address the rural environment as a space for contemporary cultural production and debate.

Their individual practices are involved with site-specific and participatory art forms, and they often use local narratives, facts and resources as the starting point for their work. Their common interest in the rural also comes from the fact, that they all grew up in very small villages, which they left at start of adult life. The exhibition displays at Belmont, Music Hall and Shrewsbury Museum all show projects that have been developed and realised in their home villages and are part of the ourvillages series.
