The work of artist Inge Panneels, and the wider Working Perspectives project, will feature on ITV’s Border Life programme on Monday 9 February. Inge, who specialises in kiln and architectural glass techniques, was filmed recently at her studio in the village of Lilliesleaf, near Selkirk.
One in a series of profiles of Borders-based artists, much of the filming focused on Inge’s involvement in Working Perspectives – a project that saw a dozen artists from the Crossing Borders collective paired with 10 different workplaces around Peebles and then charged to create new works of art based on their experiences.
Inge was hosted by the John Buchan Story museum in Peebles. Given Buchan’s love of travel and adventure, and Inge’s own passion for maps and mapping, it was something of a perfect match. Maps have become a recurring theme in Inge’s work in recent years, and are central to some of her finished work around this specific project.
The work of all 12 artists involved in the project will go on display at the Tweeddale Museum and Gallery at the Chambers Institution in Peebles next month. The exhibition, Working Perspectives – Artists in the Workplace, will run from 14 February through to 11 April (admission free).
Working Perspectives was one of a host of events, initiatives and collaborations developed as part of Peebles Creative Place 2014.
Mark your diary! The Border Life programme featuring Inge Panneels (and a little bit of Peebles Creative Place 2014) will air on ITV Borders at 8pm, 9 February.
