GRAVEL: notes from the other side of the fence

Jun 11th 2015

Thanks to everyone who came to GRAVEL: notes from the other side of the fence.  It was a fun and vibrant celebration of the Habitation Artists Residency presenting the works produced by artists Bedwyr Williams, Fernando García-Dory and Aid & Abet during their 2014-2015 Residency at University of Cambridge's North West Cambridge Development.

We'd like to thank Aid & Abet, Fernando García-Dory and Bedwyr Williams for everything they have contributed to the Residency Programme and to congratulate them on the poetic and thought-provoking artworks they have produced during their Residency. We'd also like to warmly welcome our new Residency Artists, Ruth Ewan, Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway, who we look forward to working with over the next Residency year.

The exhibition GRAVEL: notes from the other side of the fence was open to the public on 29th and 30th May 2015. It featured film screenings, installations, a seminar, talks, tours and entertainment for the opening night and took place in locations at Gravel Hill Farm, the heart of the University of Cambridge's development.

The public event featured new works by each of the artists who participated in the yearlong residency.

García-Dory devised an installation and seminar to discuss and reflect on sustainability in the built environment in relation to the North West Cambridge development.
