Artists as parents as artists

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.
