Random acts of art

In spring 2010 Spacex invited three UK-based artists to develop new work in response to Exeter’s West Quarter, where the gallery is located. The artists facilitated collaborative encounters and conversations with local residents. Amy Feneck interviewed people about the notion of ‘independent spirit’ in order to develop a script for a new film, Epilogue. Operating from her mobile portraiture studio, Lady Lucy documented encounters in her paintings ‘The Court Portraits’. Volkhardt Müller worked with people to create a series of performed actions on video. Majorette Rehearsing centered around the idea of the majorette as a West Quarter archetype; a paradoxical figure of individual aspiration, community celebration and carnival. For this feature, Volkhardt Müller reflects on his project with Spacex Project Coordinator, Martha Crean.
