A new project is set to be exhibited at Newcastle City Library over this summer as part of the Great Exhibition of the NorthDelicate Shuttle is a newly commissioned artwork by Finnish artist Henna Asikainen.

Following on from Forage, which explored the relationships between people, landscape and migration, the new work is a delicate installation of thousands of white poplar leaves, weaving together in a tapestry of fragmented and foraged experiences. The drawing on the natural landscape for influence is married with a thoughtful look at refugee and migrant communities.

As landscapes are shaped over centuries, so too are communities through immigration and exchange, with this new work looking at the social and ecological issues that arise from our relationship with the natural world. 

Delicate Shuttle is at Newcastle City Library until Sunday 9th September.
