The Hurt Goes On

An analogue foray into a digital world.

Working with Newcastle-based moving image collective Film Bee, 15 young people from Berwick Youth Project have used collective reflection and DIY problem solving to create a series of provocations and installations in the old Clarks shoe shop on Berwick High Street, about reality in a digitalised world, and how the value of images has changed with shifts in technology, particularly social media.

A partnership between Berwick Youth Project, Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.

Saturday 22 September, 2pm

Join the young people and their friends in the exhibition for a Discovery Party and refreshments.

All welcome The Hurt Goes On was produced and created as part of ARTIST ROOMS Learning Programme and inspired by the work of artist Douglas Gordon, presented by Berwick Visual Arts at the Gymnasium Gallery in summer 2018.

The ARTIST ROOMS touring programme is delivered by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate in partnership with Ferens Art Gallery until 2019, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by Art Fund and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland
