Our first street level window exhibition at …blip – a space for art

For the purpose of Sweepings Ellie Collins wrote something in response to the word ‘Sweepings’ every day for 30 days during June and July this year.

Filtering everyday scenarios through the autonomous medium of writing has yielded artefacts with a ‘not quite’ quality. Forms loosely derived from brushes and accumulated detritus have undergone a significant permutation of form and a loss of function.

As with previous installations by Ellie Collins, Sweepings is installed on carpet. In this instance, futility is implied. Detritus sticks and catches in fibres and flicks off in unexpected ways. The job is never finished.

This show is a precursor to a forthcoming installation at The Art House, Wakefield in March/April 2018.
