Drowning Dogs annotated interview

 

I was asked to participate in the Drowning Dogs project which you can explore here.

 

"Drowning Dogs is a collection of hand written interviews conducted with artists, designers and makers.

 

The name was inspired by a Francisco Goya (c.1819-23) painting. The dog is one of Goya’s so called ‘Black Paintings’ worked directly onto the walls of his house just outside Madrid in the years after the artist had suffered the illness that left him completely deaf.

“The Dog” is the starkest, sparsest, most timeless of these nightmarish visions; it shows the head of a dog struggling between the great volume of empty space above and it’s equivalent below, each a kind of depthless oblivion. It is a proverbial image – the dog trying to keep it’s head above water, not so much swimming as sinking.

The image of this drowning dog is a lovely allegory for the struggling artist trying to keep their metaphorical heads above water as they pursue their practice, and thus Drowning Dogs was born."

The Magic Shop

Curated by

Karolina Magnusson Murray

From the 23rd to 27th of April The Magic Shop will be open, and the xvi collective of artists will establish a welcoming Living Room/Salon environment. The xvi is a multi-disciplined collective engaging in a wide range of media including performance, painting, video and photography. The artists create work surrounding, gender, age, intimate relationships and what feminism means to them today. They further explore the various roles they take on in their daily lives (such as mother, father, daughter, housewife, author, artist), how these roles affect their mental health and the ways in which they inform the work the artists make.

Karolina Magnusson Murray’s piece, The Magic Shop anchors this exhibition. The artist has taken this known technique Magic Shop as a conceptual point of departure transforming the space into an 18th Century Medical style shop that is only open for men in their 50’s and 60’s, in which they can purchase human qualities.

For my piece I chose the book A Guide to Writing Your Own Will: The Easyway by James GrantISBN - 9781847162175I will hand type The Last Will and testament of Kirsty Sarah Harris and copy the legally binding document, signed by two witnesses.

ZAP Share & Exchange exhibition

10/01/2013

I had this drawing in the ZAP share and exchange exhibition in South London. Each piece shown was exchanged via a lottery so we all went home with a new piece of work. I managed to bag the youngest artist’s work there. It was a great chance to meet lots of the twitter folk in real life. Thanks to Rosalind and Annabel from ZAP.
