Aggregate: Fritha Jenkins and Edna Lumb

Produced during a second residency partnership with Leeds Arts University, in response to an experimental exhibition that ran from 14 February to 29 March 2018. Aggregate attempted to reactivate Edna Lumb’s industrial landscapes of the 1960s and 70s through Fritha Jenkins’ archival imagination, which manifests in sculpture, video and performance investigations. Designed in collaboration with dust, the publication includes a curatorial foreword by Catriona McCara and a new writing commission by artist and sociologist Nina Wakeford (Royal College of Art), ‘The Northern Line’, based on an interview with a female engineer. Wakeford’s piece is a tribute to Lumb’s achievements and was produced in correspondence with Jenkins’ creative approach.
