Devised & designed by Kaavous Clayton & Ben Coode-Adams
Together Kaavous Clayton and I have come up with a scintillating exhibition. It reflects some of our shared areas of interest over the last few years; colour, pattern, scale, craft, powerful god figures, very fine sanding and wool. You know, all the – ‘whoa hold on tiger’ – bits of art/design/craft (definitions are all a bit blurry in this show – no helpful hierarchies) that send a shiver down your spine.
The galleries at the Minories will be completely transformed – I know you’ve heard that before but this time it’s true. We’ve new walls, floors and ceilings to transport you to aesthetic joy. Panoplies of wood and wool in combination and separately. And thoroughly detailed paintings. New perspectives will unfold in delightful and enchanting combinations that will make you want to come back again and again.
Thank you so much to Kaavous, the Minories staff and Colchester Institute for hosting this exhibition. Thank you to the Arts Council for funding us, to make and show new work and produce a catalogue. And thank you to all the artists for making great work and allowing us to show it. Thank you to Nicol Wilson for all your hard work. And thanks to you people for making the effort to come to the show.
