The Mitre Owl: David Orme & Joanna Whittle


The Mitre Owl: David Orme & Joanna Whittle
Artcade, Forum Arcade, Devonshire Green, Sheffield, S3 7SB
2nd July –  24th July

David Orme and Joanna Whittle will collaborate in putting together a new exhibition at ARTCADE, Sheffield’s newest Gallery, showcasing new work and experimental projects. The exhibition will bring together undercurrents in the work of both artists which explore ideas of collection, display and acquisition. ‘The Mitre Owl’ represents a collection made up of objects and original artworks by Orme and Whittle as well as artefacts and items from their own treasuries. The exhibition space will become part shop front, part assemblage and part physical inventory and will represent a small corner of a much wider and quite possibly fictional archive.

The exhibition will reveal points of collaboration between Orme and Whittle including the production of a limited edition brass pin and new riso prints from Orme’s Potion workshop. New paintings and ceramics from Whittle will sit alongside Orme’s own ceramic works and collages along with other artworks from the collection.
