Event description

Description

An Open Ground is an exhibition and research project at Bloc Projects, Sheffield.

Supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund we have been able to work on putting together a project that brings together occupants of the Arundel Street Lower Porter area of Sheffield city centre, mapping and sharing the area’s architectural, industrial, cultural and community heritage.

As part of this unique project Bloc Projects have commissioned a new film to be produced by Sheffield based artist Peter Martin that explores the particular changes occurring across this transient area of the city. By using local occupants as starting points, Martin’s film will further investigate the nature of the site through a method of collaging video, collected audio and narratives provided by local residents. Photographic work produced during a workshop focusing on the area will accompany Martin's film in the gallery space.

On Saturday 9th September, and to coincide with Heritage Open Days, Bloc Projects will also play host to a fete in the gallery’s courtyard to mark the opening of the exhibition. The event will include local food by Tonco, music, local artist’s work and guided tours of the area by Sheffield historian Ron Clayton. to book your free place on the tours click here!

A new Bloc Billboard commission will be undertaken by Sheffield based design group Dust. In addition to designing the new billboard, Dust will also be building a website that will host all of the information, including images and videos from the exhibition and events. This will act as a long standing resource for anyone who would like to engage with the project following the end of the exhibition.
