Time Unfolding: alabaster and transience

Ludlow Palmers

Thursday 19 March at 3:30pm


Ludlow Methodist Church

Speaker: Janet Manifold

Janet Manifold is a sculptor working primarily in alabaster. She completed an MA in Fine Art at Birmingham School of Art in 2019 and has recently exhibited work as part of the John Ruskin Biennial at the Museum of the Near Future, Lancaster University and the Hive, Birmingham.

Alabaster is a form of calcium and the concepts underpinning Janet's work have their origin in the influence of calcium on the rhythms and cycles of both the natural world and ourselves. The notion of “time unfolding” extends from geological timescales at one extreme to the speed of a firing a neuron at the other, and alabaster is a uniquely transient material through which to interpret these concepts.

Part of the Palmers' Talk and Tea series.
