William Cobbing: Transactions of the Duddo Field Club

4 July 2014 - 30 October 2014

As Lipman artist in residence at Newcastle University, William Cobbing has been developing new works featuring the imprint of letterpress blocks into malleable clay surfaces. Words appear and are then distorted through the act of reworking the surface. The Northumberland countryside provides the background for a surrealist video that documents a firing of a
bell and a golem-like figure, and a series of sculptures echoes the eroded contours of the monolithic Duddo Five Stones.
