There have been occasional exhibitions in the basement of 6 Huskisson Street since 1996, this is the thirteenth and is the first time I have visited. As basements go, it’s massive which is a good thing as the organisers have built up a loyal following over the years and many were there for the preview on Friday night. There are several ‘rooms’ and a long corridor, all bare walls – brick or breezeblock.

The four artists, Susan Leask, Margaretha Schöning, Sandra Zareth (from Cologne) , Maria Luiza Pyrlik (from Krakow) worked closely alongside each other for two weeks making new works that respond to the basement environment.

Previously in 2008 they spent a week together in a studio in the Bluecoat as guests of Eight Days a Week so this is part 2 of the project.
