Chinese Whispers consists of new, collaborative work by Studio 21 and is based on the concept of ‘making work and passing it on’. The aim is to give each member a fresh creative impetus and to stimulate a collective method of working that leads to a cohesive and collaborative body of work. It has been a very enjoyable project to take part in!
We are showing small, exploratory ‘work-in progress’ pieces – the beginnings of the Chinese Whispers project – at the NEC. Larger works will be shown at another exhibition in the autumn.
The starting point was my Seeing Sound Workshop. The work made by each member of the group from this workshop was passed onto someone else who responded to it and then passed the response onto the next person. These pictures track the development of ideas as the small pieces of work were passed amongst members of the group and show the resulting unexpected and exciting outcomes.
Do come and see us if you are in the area – I’ll be there all day Thursday.
