Prevailing Rain is a new exhibition bringing together 6 works by the West Yorkshire-based artist Harry Grundy to Abingdon Studios Project Space (ASPS) following a period of residency in Blackpool as part of the 2022 Work/Leisure programme. 

In Prevailing Rain, Grundy misremembers the Victorian Blackpool through photography, sculpture, drawing and installation, playfully manipulating found objects discovered during his time on the Work/Leisure residency.

Rain arrives as a fertiliser for life whilst dampening the mood of those it hits. This tension is explored through frustrated sex objects, bruised poems and unnaturally restrained wildlife. As the rain falls outside of Abingdon Studios, its effects are seen inside, in its project space.

Prevailing Rain took place Sat 09 Apri – 21 Apr 2022
