Dryden Goodwin: Skill

mima, Middlesborough
10 October 2015 – 15 November 2015

Skill (2014) is a film in twelve parts, focusing on Goodwin’s encounters with fourteen people from East Durham. Each person has a hands on, specialist skill, ranging from tattooing, to wood-turning, to pigeon fancying.

Skill encapsulates the drawings Goodwin made observing each person at their endeavours with the conversations that took place. The film and the drawings are a celebration of dexterity, passion and commitment, capturing a shared deftness of hand and mind as each person transforms the materials they work with.
