Phyllida Barlow, Caroline Wright, Helen Rousseau & George Szirtes engaged with each other’s practices through an eighteen month research project entitled I. In the project they investigated the relationship between drawing and writing. The ‘studio’ installation in Wysing’s gallery included an audio conversation recorded between the four of them, a script by Caroline Wright and Helen Rousseau and a backdrop photograph of Caroline’s real studio at Wysing and copies of materials produced so far. During the exhibition the studio installation hosted one of their meetings, open for visitors to encounter.
EASTgoesEast is a collaborative project developed from EASTinternational and Norwich University College of the Arts in partnership with Bunkier Sztuki, Kraków, Trafó Gallery, Budapest, Studio of Young Artists Association, Budapest, and OUTPOST, Norwich and is organised by Kaavous Clayton. He invited the artist Karolina Kowalska to show the work. The curator and three of the artists involved in EASTgoesEast, Karolina Kowalska, Jonathan O'Dwyer, and Krisztian Kristof, all contributed material to presenting different areas of interest within the common resource and further expanding this international partnership.
