‘Hypogeal’ is a type of germination that occurs underground without exposure to sunlight for photosynthesis, allowing a plant to grow until it reaches the surface. During the hypogeal stage the plant will grow a single leaf seed which sets the template for the characteristics of the plant when it surfaces above the ground.
Since April 2011 BasementArtsProject have been working with established artists and lecturers, recent graduates, undergraduates and members of the community on a vast array of projects here in the South Leeds area, as well as in places such as Liverpool, London, Stockholm and Jamestown; New York. This book and accompanying exhibition will look back at the work presented throughout 2015 as BasementArtsProject turned five years old.
The book features essays by Derek Horton, David Cotton, Anna Ratcliffe, Alan Dunn and Alistair Kaye, Dominic Hopkinson and Bruce Davies.
BasementArtsProject would like to thank Leeds Art Fund and posthumously Ben Read for the support that they have shown us since the very beginning. This book was produced with the support of Leeds Art Fund.
