36 Lime Street Gallery in the heart of the Ouseburn Valley will play host to the Milan based small press publisher ‘Inchiostro`’. Over the past few months the group have been working in collaboration with Newcastle based Printmaker Theresa Easton, exchanging artwork via the postal service and documenting the progress.
The exhibition explores the nature of collaboration and exchange.
A body of paper based works have evolved between the two parties, expanding into a visual dialogue and narrative.
Marina Chiocchetta, Demis Marturano, Rossella Marino and Monica Rocca form the small publishing house, Inchiostro` working with print, paper pulp and sculpture. Referencing the procedure in printmaking known as a’ ‘state’ each stage in the production process has been digitally recorded, to be exhibited alongside each finished piece.
Visitors to the gallery will be able to observe the collaboration process at first hand. Saturday 28th & 29th July 12-5pm visitors will be able to contribute to a word book project with Inchio`stro.
The exhibition coincides with the annual Ouseburn Festival 21st & 22nd July, celebrating the valleys unique creative and cultural environment. Sunday 22nd July 4-6pm the artists will be engaging visitors in a free, drop-in print workshop offering visitors the chance to create their own Ouseburn print to take away.
