Corsets, Publicity, and the Venice Biennale

26 Aug

I’ve caught a heavy cold and I’m going to get an early night and sulk! So I’m reposting Melanie Ezra’s artblog instead. There’s loads of arty things in it, including some stuff of mine……

Summer is drawing to an end and it’s quite a quiet time for me. I’m about to hit the ground running in September though and have so many projects about to kick off it’s ridiculous. One of these is an exhibition I’m co-curating at the end of September called A Victorian Tapestri which aims to create a dialogue between Victorian attitudes and the evidence that remains here in contemporary Swansea. Already artists from all over the country are considering and creating, delving and deliberating. From Victorian corsets to workhouse soundscapes it looks like this show will have it all.

Then there’s a little matter of the Venice Biennale. I’ve created some miniature versions from the Structured Chaos series for the Venice Vending Machine which will be opening at the end of next month.

I’m also about to kick off a series of photography workshops called Bringing Gower Home
