I was awarded an NAN ‘Go See’ bursary from a-n magazine to meet with contacts previously made through ‘Nordic Artists Abroad’ to explore the potential of a collaborative project with them. The aim was to initiate a dialogue with the purpose of discussing their artistic practice and consider their role as collaborative partners for future exhibitions.
I had been introduced to Jet Pascua – an artist working in Tromso, Norway through NABROAD and I had invited him to exhibit with me at Metal, Liverpool on a collaborative project. This in turn led to me exhibiting at his gallery ‘Small Projects’ in Tromso. ( March 2011) I had certain restrictions on the size and weight of the work I could take so I adapted ‘King’ that was first shown at Metal.
The installation was shown alongside photographs from my travel project
