‘Eight Days A Week at the Bluecoat’
‘Turner’s Travels’, the collaboration project by Pete Clarke and Georg Gartz.

8th – 14 th December 2008
open day 2pm-5pm 13th December 2008

Pete and Georg have been making work in England and Germany since 1998. In May 2007 they explored the historic journeys of Turner along the Rivers Rhine and Mosel exhibiting the resulting collaborative paintings at Museum Zündorfer Wehrturm.

In the summer of 2008 they made an equivalent journey in the North of England, making drawings of Gordale Scar, Malham Tarn and Kilnsey Crag. The project explores iconic places depicted in Turner’s paintings and sketchbooks to produce new transcriptions and re-invented images exploring concepts of national influence, cultural production and ‘Romanticism’.
