outpouring- Jan Fieldsend

Exhibition dates: 30 April- 8 June 2007

"outpouring" is an installation created for the almost chapel-like University Art Gallery space. Formerly known as the War Memorial Gallery, it once housed a collection of ribbons and medals- the decorations of war. Jan Fieldsend has long been interested how pattern, colour and objects can hold and indicate a wealth of meaning. This work continues her use of military insignia and decoration in juxtaposition with domestic decorative elements to explore the legacies of conflict.
