This publication edited by Andrew Bracey and Danica Maier, is the result of an artists’ research residency that used unseen parts of the Lace Archive in Nottingham as catalysts for the creation of new artworks. Andrew Bracey, Danica Maier and Lucy Renton spent two and half years rummaging, exploring and making.

Critical texts by Pennina Barnett, Fiona Curran, Janis Jefferies, Sian Vaughan, alongside interviews with the artists involved, unpack the findings. This is part of a larger research project ‘Bummock: New Artistic Responses to Unseen parts of the Archive’. Like the Bummock – the largest part of the iceberg that remains hidden under water – archives often contain far more than is ever accessed. Bummock gives a platform for these stored and yet to be appreciated parts, and is developing alternative methods for researchers to access archives. This is the first of a series of publications that will collate the findings and artworks from residencies in different archives.

Accompanies the exhibition at Backlit Gallery, Nottingham, 26 Jan- 18 Feb 2018 and Ruskin Gallery, Cambridge, 21 Jan – 16 Feb 2019.
