'Return to Ritherdon' is a two year residency at Ritherdon & Co Ltd, a manufacturer of metal enclosures based in Darwen, Lancashire U.K. It was devised by artist Nicola Ellis and funded by Arts Council England.
Nicola is interested in the properties, value, function and circulation of materials. She has a current focus on metals and the companies that work with them, her work draws on the visual and spoken language of industry operations, fabrication and profiling processes. The parameters for her sculpture, installation, drawings and videos include relationships between people, businesses and technology.
Established in 1895, Ritherdon have been manufacturing a variety of electrical enclosures and related products for many decades. A combination of a passion for innovation with close working relationships with their customers means that they are continually developing and expanding their product ranges.
They were set up in 1946, by Royal Charter, to champion and develop art and culture across the country. They are governed by an Executive Board and National and Area Councils.

(Please refer to the doc. files within this repo. for more in-depth breakdowns of how this all works.)
