We talked of forthcoming residencies, potential research and development towards a permanent studio space including inclusive collaborations and practise. We know they work, now we need to trial how it can be sustainable, increase our shared studio experience and ways for making the work more public and visible. I fancy a pavement art exhibition - but I think that might be a flight of fancy?
Oli Raymond Barker was unable to come but we had a good chat the day before and are dreaming and scheming projects and possibilities. http://oliverraymondbarker.co.uk/?p=438
Oli and I hope to develop our creative relationships and the potential for cross art form collaborations with improvising musicians and artist/photographers: Jamie Mills www.jamiemills.co.uk , George Bradley Peer and some Shallal Dance Theatre dancers. We all know each other and each others work but having the time to give to a collaboration is what we need to discuss.
I am very excited about this as it will develop our work with many forms of photography and image projection and musical and dance responses.
I also met lovely Alexandra and Paul recently who are old friends of Shallal and hope we may dream some ways of working and supporting each other and promoting artists and different practise. www.zierlecarterliveart.com
