‘lockers’ – pop-up residency and exhibition, Chelsea College of Arts, London

Lockers_flyer_02Itā€™s a pop-up show in the CG05 corridor (near the part-timer’s base room) in which each of us takes one locker and curates an exhibition in the 30 x 30 x 43 cm cubby. It is a response to the locker as a space, aĀ container, a set of limitations, boundaries, a wish granted, or some other response.

Of course, there are only 20 lockers and almost 30 people in part-time 1 & 2 group so this might also turn into an exercise in negotiation, compromise, and teamwork!

What I propose is 1-2 (or more) people choose a locker, and put an object in or installationā€¦ and then placeĀ a padlock on the door (for safety). DuringĀ the exhibition, the lock is enigmatically left on or perhaps the door is left wide open for uninhibited viewing.

‘alchemy of the perfect fragrance (growing up in Illinois)’, 2015, found scents and installation

This one’s about memories, and how they are made… in this case, through my sense of smell. Each of 12 scents is carefully crafted and a little story is attached to the bottle. The viewer could ignore my story in favour of their own…
