Radical Craft: Explorations in Creativity

For Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making exhibition, Craftspace collaborated with ActionSpace to organise an action research project focused on the practice of one of their studio artists, Andrew Omoding.

Andrew Omoding is a twenty-eight year old Ugandan-British artist living in London. The objective was to explore how Andrew’s work might change if he were given a larger space to work in and dedicated studio time outside of the regular weekly group sessions at ActionSpace. The residency would provide Andrew with more time, a large space to himself and the opportunity to experiment with a wider range of materials; in short, the opportunity to work as a professional artist.

Craftspace invited Trevor Marchand, a social anthropologist, to observe, record and analyse Andrew’s making processes at a studio selected for the residency. The aim was to gain deeper understanding of the conceptual and tactile creative methods adopted and developed by Andrew. The residency was documented throughout by Trevor; who wrote a catalogue essay and produced a short film from his many hours of video footage and thousands of photographs.

Produced and directed by Trevor Marchand.
