We had a lovely day yesterday catching up with our curators, and other artists from the Louder Than Bombs show at Stanley Picker Gallery in Kingston in March. Our meeting was at the Live Art Development Agency, who part curated the show, and the aim was to reflect on and discuss what happened. The legacy of our residency has been really good for us.
It's been beneficial performing our work in a Live Art context and relating our labor to the Joseph Beuys quote around which the show was based. The situation we created has given us a clearer vision as to how Prick Your Finger could grow in the years to come. Our research has given us more to write about, more images to brand ourselves with, and more reasons to get out into the world and make a difference. As Fugazi so rightfully sang, 'Cos what a difference a little difference would make.'
There's a lovely little film of us all and check out my Mother's hands on the spinning wheel, she's getting really good!
Each of the seven residencies were so different from each other, I do recommend taking a few minutes to surf through the images by clicking on the link below.
