MARKING OUR WAY: exhibition and ebook
Exhibition from 13th to 31st July 2022
Broadway Gallery, 2 The Arcade, Letchworth Garden City SG6 3EW
Marking Our Way is a body of work which four artists completed during the pandemic. It began when we started to meet online to encourage each other creatively. Inspired by creativity coach Rod Judkins, we each considered how we would design the cover of our fictional autobiography and the seeds of the project were sown.
As the ideas for the book covers evolved, we started researching other artists who created overtly autobiographical work with which some personal connection was felt. This led to the development of our own autobiographical work.
Spending more time at home presented an opportunity to take stock and throughout this project we have reflected on the way we work, the work we made and the work we admire. Each has addressed the questions: Who am I? What do I do? What do I like? Why do I like them? How do I work?
Although we didn’t set out to write a book, we found the act of writing helped to clarify thoughts and to share them amongst themselves. The e-book accompanies the exhibition.
If you would like to download a PDF copy for free or on a ‘pay-what-you-want-basis’, hopefully you will enjoy reading about our work and how we create it.
