Cley 17 CONNECTIVITY
Exhibition dates: 6th July - 6th August 2017
Connecting is inherently human and one way to connect to the world is through art.
In creating work for Cley17 artists, artist groups, collaborators, craftspeople and designers should use historical context and local connections to create links between site and art. For example, it interests me, as a ceramicist, that Cley is Anglo-Saxon Claeg for 'clay'. How might that connection be shown? One possibility is through objects discovered or mislaid.
I will expect proposals to demonstrate ‘connectivity’ between material and meaning.
In the digital age where social media and the Internet dominate, our connection to others is often through the printed word rather than direct conversation. Interactive artworks that connect to the public and that reflect our connectivity to the world and our affinity, kinship and integration with others are therefore encouraged.
Artists should create a proposal in visual form, as seen within the site in which they wish to exhibit although chosen sites are not guaranteed. Proposals will be selected anonymously and should be presented on a single A4 sheet (whether on paper or printed digital plan) and include additional notes on concept, materials and presentation.
