scrap examines ‘collage’ arts practice – one that emphasises contingent strategies of creative production. These cluster around an innovative approach to materials; the assemblage of found objects; the juxtaposition of elements from different worlds; and the extensive use of chance and improvisation in urban settings. The exhibition expands upon themes explored during recent Fulcrum: Art Writing workshops, and forms an open-ended dialogue with Fulcrum’s first publication scrap, rather than a linear narrative or categorization of collage.
Fulcrum: Art Writing
Fulcrum is a platform for writing about, for, and through art and design. Anyone wishing to kick-start, develop or share new work (including texts, images, objects, audio, film, performative and curatorial work as modes of production) is welcome. From this sharing, Fulcrum aims to animate spaces for discussion, documentation and publication to expand vibrant critique in the Teesside area.
