BRITISH TEXTILE BIENNIAL, 2019-2020

 

(Artist ASSISTANT)

 

The British Textile Biennial explores the nations creatvity and innovation in textiles; with a focused recognition of local heritage. For the BTB 2019, this included many outputs, exhibitions and workshops. The two which I was involved in assisting were the Adidas Spezial Exhibition by Gary Aspden, and the 'Transform and Escape the Dogs' exhibition by Artist in residence Jamie Holman. 

As part of this involvement I assisted in the build and takedown of the Adidas exhibition. I particpated and assisted in a series of particpatory artworks during Artist Jamie Holman's residencey with the BTB; and more recenlty assisted the artist with his most recent work for the BTB, 'FLASHBACK', an audio archive of the human stories behind Blackburn's Acid House parties.
