Darren and I have been working remotely for a while, taking photographs and exchanging images via Pinterest to start to develop ideas for the exhibition at the Minories in Colchester. Today we met at the Gallery to look at the spaces and meet curator Kaavous Clayton.
I’m using photographs taken from video of me getting into awkward places as the basis for large drawings, as a process for thinking about space and how we will approach making work in the exhibition at The Minories.
At a distance from The Minories I’ve spent a couple of days getting into tight corners, using those available to me in my house. If nothing else it’s proved that I’m not as flexible as I’d like to think, and getting into uncomfortable positions is very uncomfortable!
