16 July to 5 August
David Kefford, who had a studio at Wysing at the time, spent the summer of 2005 transforming Wysing's gallery into a total environment of new work, produced in the gallery space over a period of one month.
David Kefford was commissioned to create new work for the gallery at Wysing, with a proviso that he should not incorporate any pre-existing work but use the time to develop a new series of works in response to being in the space.
Wysing's gallery therefore became a temporary studio, in which to test new ground in an exploratory and expansive way. The resultant exhibition was an energetic and psychologically charged immersive environment of objects that were formed of found materials.
Throughout the residency period, David welcomed many visitors into the space to talk about the work as it was in the process of being developed.
