In days leading up to the session at Turf Projects, promoting the opportunity for artists to share work in progress at the event, I was confronted with a Tweet from a user unknown to me asking, “Is showing something you haven’t finished yet, like walking out in public with your pants off?”
balancing, being in limbo, practicalities, juggling, having odd-jobs, carving out space, and modes of working within, outside of and along-side art institutional frameworks; a physical to-ing and fro-ing, ducking and diving, navigating and negotiating of place, re-positioning of self, flying limbs and swinging hips, a constant two-step.
Perec wrote a 300-page novel ‘La Disparition’ with no letter ‘e’ in it.
It was a real pleasure to see the three artists works during the crit and the session provided a lively discussion across the distinct bodies of work.
Firstly, we saw Adeline McCann’s latest work.
