Inclosure: Sander Van Raemdonck

Berwick Visual Arts artists in residence in partnership with the Centre for Rural Economy (CRE) at Newcastle University, presents a new body of work exploring rural housing in Northumberland.

During his residency Belgian printmaker and sculptor Sander Van Raemdonck has formulated architectural design proposals, not to suggest an answer to rural housing issues, but as a way to provoke current concepts of what ‘rural’ might mean within this context. The works created for the exhibition explore common aspects of rural life, using design processes to rethink them. Part museum, part office, the exhibition is considered to offer a space for thought and discussion.

Berwick Visual Arts residency in partnership with the CRE, provides the opportunity for an artist working in any discipline to question what and who is rural, and explore rural life and society beyond idyllic representations, whilst living and working in Berwick-upon-Tweed for six months. This year the residency called for original artist-led conceptualisations of rural housing issues that would instigate creative thinking, expressions and research questions about rural homes.

The review is the result of a critical writing bursary provided by A-N (The Artists Information Company) to Berwick Visual Arts,
