Our latest residency partnership with Leeds Arts University was in response to Aggregate: Fritha Jenkins and Edna Lumb, resulting in a collaborative publication, working with designers dust. The experimental exhibition aimed to reactivate Lumb’s industrial landscapes of the 1960s and 70s through Jenkins’ archival imagination, which manifests in sculpture, video and performance investigations. The publication showcased a new writing commission by artist and sociologist Nina Wakeford (Royal College of Art), ‘The Northern Line’, based on an interview with a female engineer. The piece is a tribute to Lumb’s achievements and was produced in correspondence with Jenkins’ creative approach.

Aggregate: Fritha Jenkins and Edna Lumb was at Leeds Arts University Gallery (Blenheim Walk) from 14 February to 29 March 2018. A closing performance and publication launch took place on 29 March, 5-7pm.
