The Sunderland Book Project begins to take shape for its latest viewing at Sunderland Winter Gardens and Museum.

Its been a busy Bank Holiday weekend moving studio  at 36 Lime street, up one flight of stairs and preparing the installation pieces for the Sunderland Book Project.  The work will be on display from 9th June until 14th July and has contributors from all over the world.

Nicola Maxwell, with support of arts council england, is artist in residence at Sunderland museum and Winter Gardens researching and working with the historical herbarium archive of Durham Flora. Nicola is a photographic artist and is developing ways to respond to the archive to produce new bodies of work and areas of concern. Her practise is based around our collection, manipulation of and relationship to nature.

Nicola is a contributor to the Sunderland Book Project with her Japanese Stab Bound book ‘New Towns, New Worlds’ exploring the green spaces developed in Washington New Town and with text references used by the quango when developing Washington
