An artist-led project, Inch by IN:CH is bringing contemporary art out of the gallery and into the community by showing work in alternative public spaces around the South West of England. The artists will transport their work in travel cases (a diverse collection of cases) from one place to the next. The sites will be plotted as an outwardly mobile spiral - a metaphor for the migration of ideas, connections and hope.
Venues include Bishops Lydeard Station on the West Somerset Railway, the longest heritage railway in England. The work will be shown in the newly restored Gauge Museum, in their unique Victorian Sleeping car, with artworks spilling out onto the platform. Other venues include Found Outdoors, a beautiful woodland in Erlstoke, Wiltshire, Frome Museum and shop windows for Frome Festival, the Garage at Bath Artist Studios, a pop up in Bristol, and East Somerset Railway, a heritage Brunel steam railway station, part of the Strawberry line.
