theGRID – Planning for super secret fun times

Slightly off tangent post about a different kind of practice.
Around the back of theGRID hybrid arts collective’s space there is room many different outside-based things. I will be having a go at creating one of these things, and as there is still a lot of work going on around the space, we are in the early stages. Waiting for the workmen to finish up before we can really start, but here’s a documentation of what we have (hopefully soon, we will say ‘had’). Was that vague enough for everyone?

Is this counted as cruelty to plants?
Predominantly featuring scaffolding, hastily erected fences and a portable toilet.
Rusty fence collapsing under weight of vines. 
Here’s a nice pile of shit. 

Fridges. Those white things are fridges on their sides.
Fridges, bricks. I forsee heavy lifting in my future.
I think this shows promise. Everything will try it’s hardest to do what I want, which is obviously still a secret*.
And a trellis.

*It’s probably not a secret.

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
