Dagenham, A moment in Time,

Josh Law and Catrin Bailey

14th Jan- 7th Feb 2020

The Former Ford Stamping and Tooling Operations Plant at Dagenham has been a significant part of the economic, social and industrial landscape of the area for over seventy years. Once providing employment, housing and infrastructure this industrial site has left its mark on the historical record of the area. Through social reform, political change, and industrial growth it became a widely known part of Dagenham’s cultural heritage.  All this came to an abrupt end in 2013 when the Stamping Plant ceased operations for the last tie, the hoardings went up and all that lived on were memories.      

In 2017 artists Joshua Law and Catrin Bailey approached Scudder Demoilition, a Carey Group Company and principal contractors for the demolition and remediation of the site, with the idea to document the site and preserve its memory through their own creative practice.

This exhibition is the culmination of three years’ worth of site visits, documentation and creative practice.  Using photography, printmaking, sculpture and painting Josh and Catrin have given us glimpse of the forgotten world behind the hoarding.

Grand Opening of The Appleby Gallery

Jacinta Appleby with her Husband and Daughter after the unveiling of the new gallery sign.

It has been an exciting year here at The Gallery. In January we received the news that we would be moving into the original 1930’s part of the school. With the ever changing landscape of Art in education nationally, we are grateful to our governors and to our leadership team for ensuring that the school retains a gallery. 

With any new gallery comes a new name. With this in mind there really was no better name for our new space other than ‘The Appleby Gallery’. Jacinta Appleby, our former Head of Art had been teaching here at Frances Bardsley for 26 years.  Jacinta was instrumental to the development of the school’s creative ethos and to the building of the original gallery at the front of the school. She has been a true inspiration to pupils and staff of this schooland many of her past pupils will pay testament to that. 

This is an extremely exciting time for us, we thank you for your continued support and hope that new gallery will continue to provide an important creative hub for our girls and for the wider community.
