A Constant Companion (1st Floor)
One of Zara Carpenter’s earliest memories as a small child is laying in bed at night rubbing her legs to soothe them. Pain has walked beside her for most of her life, a constant companion. In this solo exhibition Zara shares works from both past and present projects exploring pain. From the ritual of taking medication in The Painkiller Prints to visualising both physical and psychological trauma with her on-going series Distress.
Zara’s artistic practice investigates the hidden aspects of living with a chronic invisible illness. Her interdisciplinary work spans various media, combining print making and photography and often using materials of an ephemeral nature.
Discovery (Ground floor)
Throughout 2018 we were fortunate to run a number of workshops exploring photography and wellbeing, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. This exhibition is comprised of a number of works created by participants during these workshops that were facilitated by a fantastic range of artists. From the Japanese Art of Kintsugi to sun prints, this exhibition showcases the many ways in which the Free Space Project encourages its beneficiaries to reflect on life’s experience through creative and engaging community activities.
