The next step in the journey...

'The Climb'
by Sorrel Muggridge and Laura Nanni
11am-1pm, September 1st-5th
Presented by Angel Row Gallery (Nottingham UK)
In conjunction with 'Walking Life' exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel (Toronto ON)

Laura and Sorrel invite you to join them on an ongoing quest to climb 699km high in order to see each other over the horizon. This vast height has been quantified through a series of walks and climbs in their respective cities (front steps, churches, fire escapes and car parks) which will accumulate to this grand total.

The next phase of the journey will be guided by their search for new stairs to climb; unexpected viewpoints and long forgotten pathways will be revealed in the process, giving us all a new perspective of our city. The Climb will take place simultaneously in Nottingham and Toronto.

A series of daily climbs will start on 1st September 2007 (until 5th September) at 4pm. All climbs will start outside Angel Row Gallery Nottingham and the gates of Trinity Bellwoods Park Toronto This event is free but places are limited.
Documentation collected by the artists and participants from this latest phase of the project will be featured as part of the 'Walking Life' exhibit at the Gladstone Hotel, September 9th- October 5th, Toronto.

Sorrel and Laura are constantly on the look out for new stairs to climb and are keen to hear your suggestions. Do you live at the top of a block of flats or know of any good vantage points from which we can view our two great cities? If so, we would love to hear from you and see you at the event.
