I am exhibiting in this collaborative show @five_walls titled “Unfinished Search for the Miraculous” . It is a curatorial project based around Dutch artist , Bas Van Ader’s life work, in which he pursued the concept of when is an artwork finished.
I collaborated with @m_wallus01 ,@pjbgoldehguro , @robert_mangion2705 , and Lauren Kennedy, to create an interactive exhibition embracing printing, photography, sound installation, artist book and abstract assemblage work.
It was a challenging exercise and taught me about working to a theme, collaborating with mentors, peers, and younger practitioners and expanding my skills. Five workers in the visual art field who resonated well in the five walls project space, it seemed appropriate somehow.
We installed the show, orchestrated the opening night and gallery sat. All valuable skills. The install taught me basic woodworking applications and trained me in spatial and location techniques. Opening night displayed the importance of networking and getting as many people as possible to your show. Gallery sitting became a valuable lesson in marketing the work, making it accessible to visitors and facilitating the experience by being able to talk about the work.
I am grateful for the opportunity and will be sad but feeling empowered when the exhibition ends on 7th October.
