A range of visual artworks focusing upon clean air in the Tees Valley. This ambitious project will include sculptures, installations and artworks in the week of the Festival of Thrift

Returning for a second year VIEWPOINTS is focusing on clean air in the Tees Valley. This exciting and ambitious project will include sculptures, installations and artworks displayed across the Tees Valley in the week of the festival.

Installations include:


Darlington Indoor Market
Horse Market, Darlington, DL1 5PN

In the nineteenth century, green spaces within urban environments were identified as the ‘lungs of the city’ due to their air purifying qualities. This architectural installation
showcases contemporary fabrication techniques using materials that reduce toxicity in the home and will contain a living environment of plants that possess the most effective air cleaning properties. Workshops will be running during VIEWPOINTS.


Palace Arts Gallery
Esplanade, Redcar, TS10 3AE

Using Air-InkTM created from recycled exhaust fumes this thought-provoking artwork will showcase pollution in its physical form, making a usually invisible environmental issue, quite literally, visible. Peter is working with Graviky Labs of India, who have pioneered this extraordinary process. The work will be performative in nature, developing over the course of the week - head to the gallery to watch this fascinating drawing technique.

And many more. For full details please visit Viewpoints on the Festival of Thrift website.
