a labor of love

๐—ฎ ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ is a publication about the art of collaboration. 56 artists who had never met were paired together based on the compatibility of their work. Through emails, video chats, and text chains the 28 curated pairs explored their new connections and made something together. The result is a collection of collaborative spreads that prove community and care are vital to any art practice.

Bronwen and I wanted to create something entirely from our archives. Through emails, Zoom chat and chain of texts we curated each otherโ€™s work from leftovers, excess artworks, test prints, experiments created on various types of papers. We discussed ideas, expressed love for each otherโ€™s work and admired a job well done on pairing us together. We scanned and sent over the curated works to each other. The result is a collaborative visualisation and reimagining of a new landscape emerging from the old.
