ASHLEY HOLMES
MADALINA ZAHARIA
JACK FRISWELL
MILLY PECK

ebc023 featured ashley (sheffield), jack (bristol), and madalina and milly (london). the exhibition explored notions of knowledge, libraries, and forms of documentary. madalina presented a large structure in the centre of the space which referenced both libraries and her own collection of books. the structure also hosted jack’s film, which documented the building of a large wooden pigeon by the inhabitants of a seaside town, an effigy that is subsequently burned. ashley showed a video work that cuts together found footage from youtube clips of various musical performances and song recordings focussing particularly on black and minority ethnic artists. whilst milly showed a selection of new 2d works that represent blinds or curtains that are artificially lit from behind, giving the illusion of daylight entering into the gallery space.

a workshop called open deck was led by ashley as part of the exhibition programme. open deck is part of a series of workshops that ashley has initiated, and invites participants to bring music and contribute to a space of collective listening and sharing of stories, memories and perspectives. the idea is that anyone can bring music or audio recordings (vinyl records or digital files on a usb) with the opportunity to share a space to listen in a small group and talk about some of the things people share. any genre, any time period. @opendeckpolicy. an informal artist talk/tour of ebc023 also took place during the exhibition
