For this socially-engaged arts commission from Dot-to-dot Active Arts I produced a series of contemporary artworks that were show at The Shed Gallery, Haltwhistle . The works explore the popular traditional local sport of quoits – a game that brings local communities in South West Northumberland and Cumbria together to compete in league fixtures, have a drink and engage in friendly banter. Most of the games are played outside pubs and clubs in the area. Quoits has a strong history in the area, with links back to Roman occupation.
northerngame is the product of my travels across South West Northumberland – saturated in players’ tales, dampened clay, heavy metal and beautiful places.
