BALLY FACTORY STUDIOS: OUR PREVIEW DAY

Posted by Rupert Mallin on 21 May 2007 at 21:12 in Journal

Tags: Factory Studios Norfolk Open Studios

Over 150 people attended the Open Studios Bally Factory event, Sunday 20th May. There is a real buzz between the artists and their studios at this amazing factory location. InPrint is very much part of that buzz.

The collaboration between InPrint artists and poets finds both incredible diversity in image and text, and such a wonderful spirit of support within the group.

To post a poetry reading in our studio and gallery spaces was brave, yet near forty people listened.

We made a video and sound recording of the reading - and scores, if not hundreds, of photographs were taken of our wonderful art works and interwoven texts.

A full documentary of Open Studios will follow as a means to open up our future. As you'll find beneath from Lisa D'Onofrio's entry, our forward direction began at the font! You'll also find Tonia Jillings photos of people gathered around and underneath our installation 'Shaded.'

Coming up here shortly, the brilliant work of Mike Fenton, Bronwen Edwards and Annette Rolston.

The Open Studios taster began on May the third. The Poetry Vending Machine resided rather fetchingly in front of the font, and Bronwen and Lisa's piece 'Basketcase1' was on display at the Assembly Rooms. The taster exhibitions proved a good, well taster, for the main open studio event at our Art Factory studios.

Leaf

Linocut by Annette Rolston View image

From the womb of the woman
and the heart of the man
a new tree grows

Through each fragile leaf
a narrow way opens
to other worlds:
a way like birth containing pain
and ecstasy

Drops of blood like light
pour through the darkness:
strange dew defeating time and space,
blotting out the stench
of decay:
turning the universe over
healing the curse of chaos

The tree survives flood and famine
dances to the music of eternity

Just a taste

Rupert, Lisa and Tim spent a couple of hours this morning (May 3) transporting the largest Poetry Vending Machine from the Art Factory Studios at Bally to St Giles Church in the middle of Norwich for the Open Studios "taster" exhibition.

Rupert had already done all the preparation, making sure the machine was in good order and its legs could be removed for easy transportation. He had also checked and categorised all the boxes.

At St Giles the machine is in a good position to be baptised, standing as it does in front of the font, adorned with its alluring "make-up". Rupert and Tim invested some cash in checking that it worked and were rewarded by getting their money back. Meanwhile a number of other artists were putting together their exhibits, encouraged by artist Martin Mitchell.

The machine will be at St Giles for two weeks, and then be transferred to Bally for the Open Studios proper.
