Friday 2 March, reception @ 6 PM
Sunday 11 March, discussion with the artists @ 2 PM
In drawings, images, words, and objects, Bean and Lounder present their observations of the natural history and the culture of walking in the Lake District of Cumbria, England. Being-in-the-Breathable is a multi-part collaboration considering air as our last Commons; where we breathe, gasp and expire together. In 2017, the artists presented Being-in-the-Breathable: An Annotated Walk at the Contexte Festival of Ephemeral Art in Sokolwsko, Poland. The current exhibition at Hermes is part 2 in this series, and brings together creative research, walking and art making undertaken by Bean and Lounder in the Lake District, intermittently since 1999.
