The Auxiliary in Middlesbrough hosts its first physical exhibition since September 2020 with Spatial Narratives by Teesside-based artist Loucey Bain.

Spatial Narratives marks Bain’s first solo exhibition and brings together over a year of embodied research and work through an ethnographic turn as an artist, studio holder and gallery assistant within The Auxiliary Project Space. For Spatial Narratives, Bain will present a large installation and a series of drawings.

Loucey notes: “You could say this work is my reaction to a particular moment in history, which has led to a new way of working and thinking. It’s a creation of work about a specific place at a specific point in time.”

The exhibition also coincides with The Auxiliary’s forth anniversary as an organisation and Liam Slevin, director of The Auxiliary Project Space and the exhibition’s curator, is excited to be hosting Loucey’s art. “This work speaks the material language of the Auxiliary; literally, it’s made of the things we’ve built it with; plasterboard, plywood, dropped screw bits, nails, tacks, the very stuff that laid the foundation for the amazing community of artists and makers we’ve become. Loucey’s subtle, almost delicate drawings visualise and capture that journey perfectly and to be reopening after such a tough year with this powerful exhibition is amazing.”

Spatial Narratives by Loucey Bain opens at The Auxiliary, Middlesbrough on Friday 21st May
