Location: Northern Print, Stephney Bank, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

Details: Original prints by Canadian artist Guillaume Brisson-Darveau and Visual Arts in Rural Communities (VARC) resident artist Lucy May Schofield.

As part of the AIR programe at Kala Art Institute in Berkeley California, Lucy May Schofield realised a collaborative project with Canadian artist Guillaume Brisson-Darveau.

The Moon and the Sledgehammer is a visual and emotional correspondence between the artists. This dialogue is motivated by the desire to know more about one another and feeds from the experience of the present. From these playful exchanges a new vocabulary arises, specific to the meeting of two universe conversing to create one. This dialogue implies a particular attention to the others’ sensibility whilst inviting us to redefine our own.
