Ingrid Pollard Three Drops of Blood

6 August 2022 to 29 October 2022

Curated by talking on corners. Exhibition of new work by Ingrid Pollard, 2022 Turner Prize nominee. 

This exhibition marks the first collaboration between talking on corners and THG, presenting renowned artist Ingrid Pollard to East Devon for the first time. Ingrid Pollard is recognised as one of the most influential British artists, breaking new ground and forging pathways for younger generations, shaping Britain's understanding and histories of art, society and culture.

The exhibition includes photography, print, mixed media, text, found objects and an extensive project archive. It is the culmination of a two-year research project which has seen Pollard travel across Devon. Drawing on her interests in classification, systems of knowledge, leisure, trade and money, Pollard has honed in on botanical gardens, ferns and the unique historical collections of books at the Devon and Exeter Institution. Part of Pollard's research also involved exploring the representation of botanicals in local lace making, including the renowned Honiton lace.
