Perception, connection and inclination: an article discussing the artist duo’s Walk & Talk for Jamboree 2018 – Artist’s Jamboree
At the recent Jamboree 2018 event on the Dartington Estate in Devon, the London-based German artist Rosalie Schweiker presented an improvised slide show about the difference between being a conventional ‘sausage’ artist and a hard to pigeonhole ‘mince’ artist. Here she turns that talk into a short explanation of her thinking – with added drawings of sausages, mince, and mince-based products.
Taking place on the idyllic Dartington Estate in Devon the a-n-supported Jamboree 2018 brought together 150 artists, curators and programmers from across the UK for lively discussion and the exchange of ideas. Hannah Pierce, a-n’s external programmes and partnerships manager, shares the key things she learnt from the event’s four days.
A hot four days of artist-led activity, camping, and swimming in the river Dart, Jamboree 2018 proved to be a successful pulling together of artists’ projects, giving room for discussion, creativity and knowledge sharing – some of which is featured on the a-n Instagram courtesy of Beth Emily Richards’ takeover.
