Jessica Rankin: Stone/Folding at Touchstones Rochdale, Manchester, 21 October–16 December 2017, free entry - Visit now

Artist Jessica Rankin threads a needle between serendipitous encounters with artefacts of Greek legend, second-hand book stores and reflections on childhood in a remote Australian landscape. An exhibition of entirely new work, Stone/Folding sets watercolour, needlework and collage side-by-side to express the Rankin’s two-year journey into a personal past, the physical and emotional power of art objects, aspects of female relationships and meditations on the nature of collective identity in this era of splintering communities.

Stone/Folding forms part of Touchstone’s Contemporary Forward programme, which presents work by leading female artists who deal with ideas affecting society today.
