Aggregate: Fritha Jenkins & Edna Lumb, curated by Catriona McCara, Bleinhem Walk Gallery, Leeds. March - April 2018.
An exhibition as live curation/performance, Fritha worked in dialogue with the paintings and archive of industrial landscape painter Edna Lumb, interacting with materials, site, text, gallery visitors and staff, and workers at a quarry site. The exhibition shape shifted as it went along and conversations, group investigations, site visits, archive materials, fed directly into the work across the weeks. The video below shows a snippets from the final performance and process. Many thanks to Claire Potter who contributed to the final performance and to Meg Jenkins, Martha Margetson, Sophie Yetton, Catrionia McCara, Matt Wheeldon, and Stuart Hanson who all performed in it. Glass work in the show was made by Gayle Price, (Glass blower, Chemistry Department, University of Leicester) in conversation with me.
