Rory Pilgrim: Words are not signs, they are years
Artist and activist Rory Pilgrim has worked with Sheffield-based handwritten sign-maker David Andrews for the last four years since a chance meeting brought them together. Steadily optimistic, Pilgrim’s work has tackled subjects such as social pacifism, revolution, youth powerlessness and homophobic violence. For his four week residency at Site Gallery, Pilgrim will gather an assembly of local elders to discuss progress as tied to generation and the wisdom of age as a radical proposition. Their conversation will be captured and shared in the form of hand-written signage designed by Pilgrim and Andrews and musical performance.
