Already posted this on the Facebook page, but thought it was worth posting on here too... Thoughts and comments would be helpful! Bits in square brackets need informing. Cheers guys x
Exhibition Proposal: ‘Consequences’
‘Consequences’ is a collaborative project by students currently undertaking Manchester School of Art’s [Illustration and Embroidery] courses. The aim is to explore the theme of ‘consequences,’ in its broadest interpretations – from the word game of the same name, descended from the Surrealists’ ‘Exquisite Corpse’, to the exploration of ideas about Heaven and Hell. Each member of the collective [is currently producing / has produced / will produce] a body of individual work based upon their own interpretation and exploration of this theme, from which pieces will be selected to exhibit.
One fundamental section of the project is a collaborative ‘Consequences’ film, produced by each individual creating 30 seconds of footage, according to a given sequence. Each short film is informed by a word provided by the previous film maker in the running order – the first film maker is provided with a word by the last, in order to form a loop with no real end or beginning. The short films will then be collated in this order when the Consequences Collective re-groups in September, producing an experimental collaborative video piece.
The range of work will be diverse, incorporating [drawing, animation, textile work and photography], with the film piece acting as a linking factor between each individual artist. Interpretations of the theme range from the playful and humorous, to the much more dark and serious, as well as more technical explorations of processes associated with the idea of ‘consequences’.
[here I thought maybe we could list all the members of the collective, with an image each, and a short statement about our work. This would probably be best as a separate page from the introduction above]
