TALK AND GUIDED TOUR: Frank McElhinney
12pm – 1pm

Join us for a guided tour of the Timefield installation by photographer Frank McElhinney, who attended a residential lab for older emerging artists run by Luminate in partnership with Magnetic North in 2017.

Timefield is a cross-art collaborative installation developed by six older artists: Ian Cameron, Kate Clayton, Frank McElhinney, Annie Peel, Lesley Wilson and John Wills.

This installation draws together photographs showing the impact of time on the body, large scale painted wall hangings communicating the force of nature and a soundscape integrating spoken word with sounds from the natural world. Timefield runs from Sat 27th April to Sat 25th May from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Visit platform-online.co.uk for more information.
