Interview with After Nyne Magazine.
The latest exhibition at K6 Gallery is now open. Disorder is by Joanne Hummel-Newell and Laura Hathaway.
Installed a couple of weeks ago, the opening was well attended and the artists talked about the ideas behind each of their installations and what drives their practice.
Laura Hathaway has painted the windows of one of the phone boxes. The multi-coloured colour scheme makes for a bright eye catching installation, and the paint was applied unconventionally directly with the artist’s hands.
The neighbouring phone box, which is currently kept locked contains an installation by Joanne Hummell-Newell, the installation is made up of two parts, bales and hay, these were developed during a recent artist residency on a working dairy farm and continue the theme of disorder from the neighbouring phone box.
The exhibition will run until 2nd October.
Porcelain and Paper is a collaboration with artist Sue Paraskeva.
Porcelain and Paper. Using the concept of collections as a starting point, this series of works sets out to explore the interchangeable relationship of two such materials and questions their ongoing love affair with keepsakes.

Myself and Artist Christopher Jenkins were recently awarded a grant from Arts Council England to take our ongoing collaborative project, 'Cardboard Castle' to the Bestival Music Festival. It was our biggest installation so far with over 5000 people taking part. 'A towering structure built from willow and found cardboard. An evolving platform for public free expression.Visitors paint, write and colour using childrenʼs poster paint. What they create is thoughtful, funny, political, loving, spiritual and rude. Itʼs a message board, political placard or a shrine to absent friends. Sometimes its a giant colouring book.The democratic nature of the artwork means that the artists become facilitators in the creation of an ephemeral collaborative intervention and the ownership is shared.'
I recently took part in Kieren Reed's Social Sculpture project in the grounds of ArtSway in the Newforest. Sculpture Kieron Reed has created a small hut which sleeps one person, has a bed, a desk and basic tools for cooking and cleaning. There is no electricity. Artists, Architects, thinkers and writers were asked to take part. Each person left an object or intervention for the next person to consider. read more here
