I have regrettably left advertisement for the show very late and only just started designing a poster for the exhibition. We wanted to incorporate the theme of the show being based within a garden on the poster as well as making it eye catching and simple to engage potential goers. This is the first idea […]

By putting the pictures in close proximity to each other like in the 18th nd 19th century galleries it could almost represent a comic book structure, […]

Philippe Perrano says in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist “Rather than walking through an exhibition, it is delivered to you” (Ways of Curating, Hans Ulrich Obrist, 2014). Even though this is in regards to them playing with the idea of time rather than physicality, the concept of not having art ‘forced’ upon you in a […]

Southsea Green(House) is a great little community garden situated just off Canoe Lake in Southsea, Portsmouth. I managed to get the idea for exhibiting here through a contact in Portsmouth and emailed Carla who organises the site. After several emails Alice and I visited the garden and fell in love with the location. A brief […]
