Found Object #1: Ruth Ewan & Ray Hopkins (2018)



Found Object is a series of printed posters which combine a photograph provided by a visual artist with a text response produced by an emerging writer living in the north east of England. The first three issues invite artists who have previously exhibited at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland – asking them to share intriguing items they have found and brought into their studio. Authors from the group Holmeside Writers – who meet twice a month in Sunderland city centre (and welcome writers of all levels of experience, from complete beginners to published writers) were commissioned to create texts inspired by the photographs.

Found Object #1 features a photograph by artist Ruth Ewan with a short story written by Ray Hopkins. Design by Sam Watson (OPEN-AIR). To request a swap of Found Object #1 email:
