Emma Fielden’s solo show ‘An Immeasurable Distance’ will open next Saturday at The Lock-Up in Newcastle. The exhibition explores the nature of infinity, the universe and our human place in it through drawings, video works and installations that use thread, ferrite magnets and ink. For this show, the artist began with the idea that pondering infinity might allow the mind to reach out beyond the boundaries of a confined space. It brings together The Lock-Up’s distinct architectural history as a prison and Fielden’s ongoing examination of infinite and infinitesimal phenomena.
The exhibition traverses a number of mediums and includes works developed between 2015 and 2019. Some of these works are presented largely unaltered, activating the space in their original forms, while others have been revised in response to the site. There are also a number of new works, which have been developed expressly for this exhibition. ‘An Immeasurable Distance’ will open at 5:30PM on Saturday 10.08.19 and continue until 06.10.19.
