Group Show at Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 July 17 – 23, 2017
Catherine Harrington’s contribution to this group show is entitled Beneath the Surface and exhibits a selection of her artworks based on her research into frack mining.
A site specific installation has been mounted for this exhibit. Aerial View of Fracking Equipment in the Landscape, a multimedia drawing on transparent film is mounted on the gallery’s front window. The underground mining conduit in the drawing is extended into the gallery interior via lines of tape that lead from the gallery facade onto the gallery floor. These lines of mining conduit lead toward the installation on the gallery floor surface: a “fracked explosion” created by fragments of safety tape.
