Stephen Turner's Exbury Egg is located in the Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf along with a range of associated artworks including prints, drawings, sculptures, found objects and video works contributing to an exhibition which shows the range and diversity of his practice following his and the Egg's time spent in Exbury and Burnley. There is a social area with small video works and workbooks for children developed by White Wall Yellow Door, specifically for this exhibition.
Stephen Turner will be artist in residence along Bow Creek and up the River Lee during the exhibition. He'll be walking along the creek and the river, engaging with the communities along each bank. From 4pm each week day of the exhibition, Stephen will be in the Chainstore available to meet visitors and discuss his work. An iPad in the social area shows Stephen's Periscope home page where he will be broadcasting during his residency. For the Periscope video visit: www.periscope.tv/exburyegg

everything comes from the egg is the touring exhibition of Stephen Turner's Exbury Egg and a wide range of new artworks developed and made by Stephen Turner while he was located and worked amongst communities in Exbury and subsequently in Burnley, London, Milton Keynes, Portsmouth and Hastings through 2016 and 2017. The Exbury Egg was originally located for over twelve months on the Beaulieu River in the care of The Exbury Estate through 2013 and 2014.
everything comes from the egg now tours to venues in England through 2017, including, Trinity Buoy Wharf, London - reaching out to communities around the River Lee, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth (where the Exbury Egg will be located in Gunwharf Quays) and Jerwood Gallery, Hastings. The tour reflects and develops upon Turner’s original performative relationship with the Egg as a stage for events that embrace the concept that "everything comes from the egg" (Ex Ovo Omnia, William Harvey 1651) and relocates the Exbury Egg and Stephen's practice within four different public visual arts contexts for further explorations and the development of new artworks. These new local contexts are explored by Stephen through residencies as he develops new works, interacting with a wide range of people and communities along urban canals, within a shopping center and by the seaside.
Future exhibition tour dates:
Grand Union Canal, Milton Keynes: 3 April - 14 May 2017
Aspex & Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth: 16 June - 3 September 2017
Jerwood Gallery, Hastings: 16 September - 15 October 2017
everything comes from the egg is financially supported by Canal & River Trust, Gunwharf Quays, Superslowway, Jerwood Gallery, Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust and public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
everything comes from the egg (and the original Exbury Egg project) could not have been possible without the continuing support of Nicholas and Caroline de Rothschild and the Exbury Estate.
