Head to our Instagram from 5:30 pm on Wednesday 24 March for a live streamed walking tour with Bena Jackson and Teresa Collins.

Joined by assistant curator Simon Gennard, Bena and Teresa will be taking you on a 30-minute walk around sites in close vicinity to the gallery. The walk will simulate some of the collection processes undertaken by the artists in the making of their project Bound in secret knots.

For Bound in secret knots, the artists have produced a sculptural and moving image installation made from discarded goods and salvaged materials. The exhibition follows months of engaging with different methods of collection— from requesting scraps from local businesses and collecting from public pavements, to making use of online forums, and a public call for unwanted items held at Enjoy in July 2020.  

Bound in secret knots continues at Enjoy until 3 April.

Please note this is an online only event.
