In his series of works Getting a grip, Curtis has been asking tradespeople and freelancers to work to no brief and without a problem to be fixed. For Getting a grip #5, he has commissioned key cutters and cobblers from South London to design and produce non-functional objects of their choosing.
Eleanor Morgan and I have recently been awarded The Artists Fund by ArtQuest for our Fish Rubbing project. The funding aims to support artist practice and explore if artists activity can double their money to build sustainable projects. Eleanor and I will follow fish from sea, to market, to restaurant and work with groups to print the fish at each stage of the journey. By the end of the project we will have created a collection of fine fish prints and a gathering of fishmongers, fishermen, chefs, zoologists and fish lovers.
Next workshop: IKON gallery 19 May

Turner Contemporary are running an innovative schools project over 18-months, supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation that enables primary school children to take the lead in order to transform their town and community.
After a challenging interview day where 20 children put 20 artists through their paces, I was selected by pupils at Northdown Primary School to work with them on the project. I currently meet a group from the school weekly to work together on developing ideas, taking turns to lead, discussing philosophical questions and thinking about what we could build in our neighbourhood.
