Agoraphobia: The Spaces Within turns the spaces of the Palatine Building at Blackpool and the Fylde College into a place of surprise.
Twelve artists and photographers are exhibiting in this three-part project, which creates a new way of experiencing the building. The works – from monochrome miniature models to the innuendo of red-lit portraits – are all subtle artistic interventions that lead the viewer around the common and not-so-common areas of the building.
The exhibition runs until June 3, alongside a blog, in which the artists lay bare their creative process in working towards the finished artwork.
On May 23, artists will be talking about how research informs their practice in a symposium, organised by the School of Creative Arts. There will be chances to discuss the exhibition and the artists’ working practices.
Taking part in Agoraphobia are Lynn Brown, Ann Carragher, Tracey Eastham, Sarah Eyre, Sian Gouldstone, Tom Harrison, Sam Henderson, Elizabeth Leeke, Eleanor Mulhearn, Rachel Tarlan, Aaron Tonks and Andrew Warstat.
