K.P. Culver will be undertaking her residency at our Vacant Space in Chester-le-Street, County Durham towards the end of August. Titled 'Full Physical', K.P.'s project will involve the exploration of the body through a multidisciplinary approach.
Jamie and Sean will be occupying our space in Newark at the beginning of September. They will be producing a collaborative body of work through the collection and exploration of discarded materials.
The residencies were developed to reflect Axisweb's temporary occupation of ex-commercial properties and sought to find artists who can turn a short time-frame into an advantage. Each artist/group will receive £250 to put towards materials and production costs.
On receiving the residency K.P. Culver commented:
“The residency is a great opportunity for me, having the support to fund and explore new ideas with my practices is really amazing.”
Sean Roy Parker commented:
"Grateful to receive the award and looking forward to collaborating with Jamie in a fascinating space."
