Unfolding Origins Exhibition at Selby Abbey

No items found.

29 September – 30 October

Selby Abbey is open to visitors daily from 10am–4pm.

* Please check their website for the most up to date opening times.

Over the past two years, each of our artist residencies have exhibited their work in their respective residency locations. Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright in Richmondshire, Lynn Setterington in Selby and Carolyn Thompson in Ryedale.

The project, a joint venture with NYCRO, began with the artists devoting time to research in the North Yorkshire County Archives. The aim of this project has been to open up the archives and create new artworks inspired by the collections. Each artist was able to follow their research, and develop their project based on their findings and their own creative practice.

This has led to three unique and exciting projects, each telling a different story about North Yorkshire, and each representing the location they’re about.

A selection of work from all three of residencies, including community contributions will be on display in Selby.

Decomposition/recomposition

With birdsong now long gone (save for that of the territorial Robin), today’s visit heralded another change of season - and with it, another change of focus.

So here I was, back again to see if the Chiffchaff which greeted me on my first visit had successfully reared a brood of chicks.
