If you were asked to describe your work by only showing things that inspire you (such as objects, photographs, or books), in the place where you make the work, and describe the work verbally in a brief statement, could you? If you only had a few days to prepare for this, would you be ready? As artists, we hope that the art will speak for itself, but the supplements of an artists’ practice and the chance elements of timing and preparedness are just as much a part of the exhibition process. These supplements include a place to work, materials and objects of inspiration, and writing about the work. This online exhibition was an experiment – I was interested to see how the LPP community would respond to an open call for entry, with strict guidelines, a short deadline, and a significant element of chance. The results are in, and I am pleased to share with you the entries we received. View full online exhibition here.
