Off Site, 2016
The Off Site Show happened in in Peckham at the Safe House Gallery in May 17 as part of Chelsea College of Art's Graduate Diploma program. Encouraged to work site specifically, I brought a weaving loom to the gallery and produced a tapestry throughout the duration of the show.
Visitors were asked to bring something from their journey to the gallery and the found objects were incorporated into the piece.
This process trigerred a few conversations around what could be taken from the streets and things that don't belong to anybody or anywhere. Some participants were confused about what they could bring and whether I would accept it. The weaving took 13 hours and received 13 objects. All objects the visitors brought in were incorporated. No exceptions.
*During the exhibition I was told the last person who lived in the house used to be an avid weaver.
