Staging at Late Shift

Staging at the Late Shift was more interactive this time, and more successful.
Surrounded by works collected by the Sainsbury family together with exchanges and conversations, the work made much more sense.
The online quilt has been updated and currently has more then a hundred contributions, there are still more to add and it gains strength as it grows.

Slow Making is always in the back of my mind while I am working on Fair Trade - Material Matters, does this make a difference to the end result? I am not sure, but it does mean I am not in a rush to declare it finished

Fair Trade - Material Matters for Black History month

This month's Late Night Shift at the Sainsbury Centre is linked to Black History Month, which gave the opportunity for Fair Trade - Material Matters to consider sense of identity and belonging, as well as the issues of nomadic, travelling and displaced people.

There will be opportunity for people to contribute their self portraits. I look forward to having this occasion to interact with artists again, will it affect the way they choose to depict themselves in this situation?
