Postcard connections was a large installation of postcards and thread which covered one wall of the Project Space.
It was a collaboration work conceived by Lucy Malley and I, as the ideas within it intersected our art practices. We discussed it extensively, researched, gathered our materials and selected a day for installation.
Working together we created the final piece - using Lucy’s height advantage she attached the higher postcards, and my low centre of gravity I attached the lower cards!
Skills involved were collaboration and teamwork. We installed and deinstalled the work. We documented our progress and the finished work.

Fall through was a text-responsive group.
The idea was for a group of MFA students to get together, engaging in critical analysis of a text and then produce some sort of object for discussion in the group. The way to respond to the text was absolutely open; the only rule was that there must be 5 responses. I produced 5 booklets, sewn through with red thread. Some could be partially opened, but were held back by the tension in the threads.
The text was The Politics Of Rupture. Anon.
Skills needed were collaboration, communication, research and time management.
Group Exhibition at Chelsea College of Arts London 8th-16th January
The 20/20 provided an opportunity to showcase a piece of work within a group exhibition that had a cohesiveness.
All the artworks were 20 x 20 cm as this size constraint echoed the challenges of the limitation of the exhibition space. We all met up before to discuss and agree on a theme and to organise how to deal with the practicalities of hanging the show.
It gave me the opportunity to work collaboratively and to get feedback and have peer review of my work, all very valuable in moving my practice forward.
Skills needed were collaboration, communication and time management.
SHIFT, Menier Gallery
This was an exhibition initiated by James Reynolds, bringing together a group of us from Wimbledon MFA to exhibit in the Menier gallery in central London.
It was an opportunity to exhibit work with a large number of artists and work with a group of curators from Chelsea MA Curating and Collections program.
The theme of the show was the idea of it being a constantly evolving exhibition, with the works being reconfigured on a daily basis, so we were all involved in the curation.
There was a lot of collaboration involved in working with 37 other artists. We set up group chats to discuss the logistics so we could all contribute to the discussions.
Skills that were particularly needed for the SHIFT exhibition were collaborating, time management, working to deadlines and effective communication. We installed, deinstalled and documented our work.
