Paul Coldwell: I called when you were out

27 September 2008 – 11 January 2009

Before this exhibition, artist Paul Coldwell had been visiting Kettle’s Yard with the idea of making new work for the house. ‘I found myself increasingly thinking about the house as a place that had been once lived in’, he recalled.

This event has passed. FREE, come along

In this exhibition, Coldwell’s sculptures and prints reflected on what is in the house – decanters on the cider-press screw, or Gaudier-Brzeska’s ‘Maternity’ – and what might be missing or hidden – family photographs, toys, clothing, a child’s cot. Also on view was his film of sailing boats bobbing on a pond, set just beneath an Alfred Wallis painting.

This project was supported by a grant from the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
