The Gift Project
The giving and receiving of a gift establishes a reciprocal relationship; it is a measure of our soul and a reflection of the thoughts and sentiments we associate with the recipient.
In the summer of 2014, we received the gift of a notebook entitled ‘Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself’. It got us thinking about the ways in which we constantly shape and redefine our characters as we transform into the latest incarnation of who we are, and the person we might become.
Such is the mercurial character of the artist.
We are interested to find out what happens when 13 artists come together to interpret the gift of a piece of fabric/someone else's art and creative making through their particular medium so we have invited artists from across the world to participate in a collaborative project we have named ‘The Gift Project’.
Each of the artists we have chosen has been gifted a length of fabric with an invitation to create an artwork - either on their own or in collaboration with a group - in a format that reflects their practice. It could be a video, an installation, a performance, an artefact, a garment, a piece of jewellery or a sculpture. In exchange we have asked for a length of fabric which will inspire a series of artworks of our own.
