New exhibition at Beeston’s BasementArtsProject

“Familiar interiors without their people often become spaces of meditation. When alone in them there is something unfamiliar about being in the same familiar room yet again. Memories drift by, time seems to unpick itself and the day becomes night before it is supposed to. These are images of reverie and layered time.

“Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams; we are never real historians, but always near poets, and our emotion is perhaps nothing but an expression of a poetry that was lost.”

– From: Gaston Bachelard, ‘The Poetics of Space’

The Beeston BasementArtsProject – held in a cellar at a Beeston terrace house – is hosting exhibitions by Garry Barker, Benjamin Hughes and Alistair Woods.
