The Enchanted Moment

Catherine Betola / Karen Davies / Natalie Frost

17 May 2008 - 25 May 2008

BALTIC contributes significantly to The Enchanted Moment  - a cluster of contemporary art exhibitions organised by VAF – Visual Arts Forum, North East.   BALTIC has commissioned new work by three artists from the North East - Karen Davies, Natalie Frost and Catherine Bertola who have transformed the level 5 viewing box with site-specific work.

Additional Information

Natalie Frost’s series of candy-coloured posters reveal the experiences of new mothers whose ‘enchanted moment’ was not the positive one commonly promoted. Catherine Bertola’s delicate designs will creep across the floor of Level 5 and are enlarged details of patterns from mass manufactured lace and templates used in hand making bobbin lace, contrasting the traditional and contemporary aspects of this fabric. Karen Davies has created a series of new drawings of British birds to introduce the idea of height and flight to the majestic Level 5 viewing box, and bring an element of nature to the architectural space of BALTIC.
