My Dad Used to Fish at the End of the Pier

Project Art Works has announced the opening of a new exhibition at the Hub, Hastings. The title of the exhibition, My Dad Used to Fish at the End of the Pier, is taken directly from a short film made by Marion Willis, a participant of Tuesday Studios run by Project Art Works.


The exhibition in the Pier Hub – intended as a poetic insight into the physical and perceptual experiences of people with complex needs – also features a documentary film of the group's continuing sensory investigations of the materials, space, light and elemental situation of the Pier that is undergoing restoration following a fire in 2010. 


The exhibition marks the mid point of an ongoing interaction with the Pier and surrounding promenade and beach by the Tuesday Studios, their support teams and collaborating artists. Their highly instinctive artworks are reflective of the makers' great sensitivity and awareness of both man made and natural environments.


Hastings Pier Charity has also commissioned Project Arts Works to make a rich and dynamic film that describes the Pie and its transition, through the sensory investigations of Project Art Work's Tuesday Studios group. The film will be screened as part of the Pier's opening celebrations in 2016.


The exhibition is on until Saturday 25 July, open Fridays and Saturdays 11am – 4pm, at The Hub, White Rock, Hastings, TN34 1JY.
