WE ARE KIRKBY

23 September - 16 November 2019

At Kirkby Gallery and within Kirkby town centre (Unit 17)

Launch Event: Thursday 19th September 4:30 – 6:30PM

We are Kirkby brings together two distinct but interlinked collaborative projects by photographic artist Tony Mallon, filmmaker and visual anthropologist Jemma O’Brien, the Northwood Golden Years Group and service users and staff from Kirkby Resource Centre.

Photographer Tony Mallon has been working with local residents from the Northwood Golden Years group since 2016, developing collaborative projects, which explore the past, present and potential future of people and places that make up this local area.

For this new iteration of the project the group have also been working with filmmaker Jemma O’Brien as well as local residents and staff from Kirkby Resource Centre.

The exhibition includes images, video and audio bites co-produced by Tony Mallon, Jemma O’Brien and the Northwood’s group, representing the current hustle and bustle of the town market. Whilst the works celebrate the current community who support their local high street, the work also reflects the ever-shifting landscape of Kirkby town centre.

We are also delighted to be showcasing a video work showcased recently as part of our Kinship exhibition, which focuses on two of the group members, Dolly and Joan.  The video work reflects upon the close ties, trust and friendships, which form overtime.

As part of a new collaboration between Tony Mallon and the staff and service users and local residents accessing the Kirkby Resource Centre. Tony worked closely with individuals, many of whom live with Dementia, and staff to explore alternative techniques of how story telling and physical movement can act as a trigger for key memories in people’s lives. We are excited to show a new series of works in progressing reflecting the initial residency.

This is a ‘Kirkby Futures Project’ brought to you by Tony Mallon, Jemma O’Brien, Northwood Golden Years group and Kirkby Resource Centre. 

The project is commissioned by Open Eye Gallery and supported by the Young At Art initiative (Baring Foundation and Arts Council England), PH Holt Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
