We are excited to see the first installation work at Artspace on the Prom.
‘Ether’ is an installation of eleven large, seemingly floating, objects with translucent skins reminiscent of alabaster or ice. These objects will hover above new sculptures made of black ‘ciment fondu’ which emerge from the ground to form a dialogue with ‘Ether’ and with visitors. Interactive sound will enhance the installation.

Pictures around Cromer
Although the National Gallery Collection has been taken down (doesn't Cromer look bare?) there is still time to complete the survey to help us plan future exhibitions.
We are developing the concept of a loan scheme so that the pictures will remain on view somewhere - a village hall, doctor's space, school or other such place. Let us know if you have any contacts who could benefit from this: [email protected]
