Such and Such is proud to host Sequence; a pop up print workshop by recent ECA graduate Rachel Barron.
Rachel draws from a wide range of influences including; astronomy, geometry, coded language, early computing devices and graphic musical notation.
She strives to obtain order through the use of a unique print device created during her time at Art College, this allows her to to plot geometrical shapes and repetitive patterns, controlling the symmetry and alignment of each work produced.
Ink stamps fit within a regimented guide, movable along two perpendicular axes. Each stamp represents one unit, similar to the characters within a typewriter. Using a coordinate system of letters and numbers along each axis, Rachel is able to set the position of every printed mark whilst charting the path of each drawing as patterns are formed.
We invite you to join us for a preview evening on Friday 11 November from 7-9pm at Such and Such studio.
Rachel will be running a pop-up print workshop open to the public during the exhibition, allowing participants to produce their own print using the device. If you would like to book a place on one of the 4 available groups (max 5 people per workshop) please get in touch via email - firstname.lastname@example.org
