Opening of new solo exhibition “Place/Displace”

My new major solo show opens on Fri 13th Dec 6-8 at Touchstones, The Esplanade, Rochdale. Its all around the theme of ‘place’ and includes new large sculpture, a new series of ‘Sheds of Rochdale” especially commissioned by the gallery, prints and  video.

It continues until March 8th 2014.

‘ Jill Randall’s work is firmly rooted in contemporary sculpture practice, making and

materiality. Conceptually driven, her work exploits the qualities and associations

of materials and often involves the recycling of materials invested with history and

narrative through their past use.

Place/Displace explores the importance of context in how we think about place. When

something is removed from its original context, we are forced to examine it anew.

Incorporating sculpture, prints, video and drawings, with commissioned new work

specific to and in response to Rochdale and the North West, Place/Displace enables

the viewer to scrutinise familiar places and buildings in new ways.

Exhibition preview: Friday 13 December 6pm – 8pm. Drinks will be served.
