Come Into View in the Williamson Tunnels

Laura Ferguson


Independents-logo-150If you haven’t visited the Williamson Tunnels yet then now is as good an opportunity as any as you’ll get to see an excellent exhibition at the same time as having the tour and learning the history of this weird and wonderful place. There is a charge for entry but it’s worth it – just make sure you wear sensible walking shoes and not your best suit.

The exhibition finishes this Friday- 22 October 2010.

The Surface Collective is a group of nine national and international artists who have come together to create a multi-disciplinary, site specific exhibition. Artists: Pamela Sullivan, Lucy Jones, Richard Robinson, Pauline Walmsley, Oliver Lomax, Siobhan Carmichael, Laura Ferguson, Bronek Kram, Maria Stuart.

The exhibition, ‘Come into View‘ is an exploration of ideas focused around the Tunnels with a series  of art works created and installed in response to the Tunnels unique atmosphere and history.

The artists were initially enticed and intrigued by the eccentric nature of the site and its creator. The origin and purpose of the Tunnels is surrounded in myth and speculation and new discoveries as to its construction and purpose only serve to heighten its allure as an unconventional venue to work and exhibit in.
