Speaking Spaces is an offsite programme of workshops and an exhibition of new artwork in the Lightbox Gallery at LCB Depot developed by three Leicester based artists who have been working with Phoenix over the last 12 months as part of the Phoenix Interact Labs bursary scheme.
Themes of play, cooperation, space, language and the everyday have been common threads running through the work of bursary awardees Lindsey Warnes Carroll, Sam Francis Read and Mark Towers, reflected in a diverse exhibition of sculpture, performance, interactive sound installation and drawing.
Throughout the past year, each artists have been working in parallel, prototyping workshops and projects, which has allowed them to gain peer led feedback and the exchange of skills and knowledge in order to progress and develop their own artistic projects.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of interactive public workshops by the participating artists exploring methods of co-production and the use of creative technologies as part of an artistic practice. More details of the workshops to be added soon
