Berwick Visual Arts exhibition, Roy Voss: The Way Things Are, is on display at The Gymnasium Gallery from 6 April to 2 June. The The Gymnasium Gallery is open Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 4pm and this exhibition is FREE to attend.

 

Stretching the length of the Gymnasium Gallery, The Way Things Are is a sculpture, precisely and elegantly constructed in poplar wood that approximates to the form of a pier. Inspired by Victorian lithographs, contemporary architects’ drawings and the artist’s own recollections, The Way Things Are extends the artist’s interest in romantic longing; between desire and lived experience, between memory and fact.

Voss finds something simultaneously prosaic and profound about the British seaside pier. If the coastline is a boundary, a marker for the edge of ordinary experience, then the pier forms a space beyond this.

Roy Voss, The Way Things Are (2017) is commissioned by De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill), Grundy Art Gallery (Blackpool) and Berwick Visual Arts (Berwick).

Berwick Educational Association will be hosting The Idea of a Pier: An introduction to conceptual and installation art by Professor Maria Chester on Friday 26th of April. As part of this lecture, attendees will analyse the work of Roy Voss while viewing the exhibition with James Lowther (Head of Visual Arts for Berwick Visual Arts) and Maria Chester.
