Victoria Lucas: The Strata of Things

Publication with limited edition risograph print

This visual essay has been written by Julia McKinlay to accompany Victoria Lucas’s exhibition The Strata of Things at Threshold. 

The publication reflects on the linkages between Lucas’s exhibition and wider practice with the location of Threshold in the city landscape of Leeds. The essay explores the geology of post-industrial Burley in relation to the extractive processes of quarrying, which has become a focus in Lucas’s recent work. The publication reveals Lucas’s processes for deconstructing and reclaiming an abandoned rural quarry and her interactions with the plant life that now inhabits this space.  

Informed by a series of studio visits and conversations with the artist, the visual essay gives an insight into Lucas’s practice and how she has approached making a new body of work for the unique context of the urban garden at Threshold. 

The publication includes a signed, limited edition two colour risograph print.
