Townley and Bradby have an ongoing collaborative practice. They also have two children. Here they discuss how they used an investigative project to allow their art practice and their parental commitments to inform one another, rather than remaining distinct entities. However, this feature does not look at the existing collaboration between the duo, it looks at the working relationship they initiated with a psychologist who specialises in families.
Lawrence Bradby works as half of the collaborative practice Townley and Bradby. Townley and Bradby make work in spaces that are already being used by someone else. These works have included games, picnics, public conversations, site-specific drawings, durational street sweeping events and cycle-powered film screenings. Townley and Bradby are currently researching how to sustain an artistic practice whilst earning a living and raising a family.
