I’ve just recieved the Artists Brief from Commissions East which is quite useful. it lays out the aims of the commission as giving me the opportunity to
create new work
develop my profile out of the region
attract attention from the arts media
introduce new audiences to my work
the timeline has reminded me that I have to have initial ideas ready by 8th May and the work has to be in situ by 26th September
We had a very useful and slightly scary tour by the museum’s curator Rhian Harris. The place is packed with stuff and sentiment (which I found quite interesting) But my initial ideas mainly revolved around defacing the guide book & perhaps reintroducing some play into the space.
We also had a photocall on the stairs at which I singularly failed to hold my stomach in.
