About this event

Join us for a ‘living exhibition’ with Ferment artists-in-residence Lucy Dukes, Joana Viveiros, and Jim Carter.

The artists will be working together throughout the week to continue collaborating and exploring fermentation themes. During our recent Cyfest-14: Ferment Festival they collaborated in historic High Cross House. Now they are back at Dartington to re-create the organic spirit of their collaboration, but this time with the interaction of the public.

As the residency evolves, so too will the exhibition. Please stop by more than once if you can and take advantage of the opportunity to connect with the artists and their process.

The artists will show projections of images and time-lapse films everyday 5-6pm.

about the artists

Lucy Dukes works with scobys, drying them into a kind of parchment to make sculptures, drawings and paintings that aren’t designed to last forever but can be rehydrated and are supposed to biodegrade. Home | Lucy Jane MacAllister Dukes (wixsite.com)

Joana Viveiros’ work ranges between sculpture, video, text and analogue photography. For Ferment, she explored using dough as the material for ephemeral bread sculptures. WORK | Joana Viveiros

Jim Carter makes sculpture from organic materials. His work explores mystery, power and vulnerability in relationships between land, wildlife and humankind. jimcartersculptor.co.uk
