about the Pop up project space – Saturday 30th November 2013………

Here’s some images from last weeks Pop up project. Taken by photographer and lecturer Antony, Arrowsmith.

The pop up project was not intended as a craft shop, a market stall, a public gallery, or a retail shop, but a place where you can come and browse, buy, commission, talk, discuss…..and enjoy.

It’s a project that Kath and I had been working on for a while, experimenting with the interior space, making and designing things, doing the things we love.

For me this was quite retrospective enabling me to reflect on pieces and processes I’ve been involved with in the last 10 years especially.

The curatorial process to the project has made visible some of the processes that are evident in my day – to -day activity.  For instance, masking off the hallway above the dado rail with sheets of ledger paper was particularly carthatic. In this space, Jaspers (the three yr olds) coloured drawings are still evident below the dado rail, and for me expose the way we respond to our immediate surroundings- use, perform and co exist in our domestic space. This has thrown up some interesting questions that I would like to carry on exploring.

The event was so successful we’ve decided to do it again tomorrow. One again, light sculptures, book art, paper products and fabric pieces available.
