Changeover: Jenny Parkin - History Chairs


What could be more temporary than guerrilla exhibitions in a Temporary Art Space during the taking down of one show and the hanging of the next? Every day promises to be different with variable opening times according to the hanging schedule. The public will be able to see the inner workings of a gallery as the parasitic 'Changeover' exhibitions attempt to occupy an ever decreasing space. You could propose to use the whole space or a part of it for one hour, one day or propose a project that runs for the whole duration of 'Changeover'. Jenny Parkin - History Chairs "I like to make new things from old things. I find it interesting to be able to recycle something that's already had a purposeful life. An Edwardian door has done a job for a hundred years. It feels right to cut it up, sand it down and turn it into something else entirely for the next hundred. My visual world involves a sort of urban ruralism with ice cream vans and power stations, laconic cattle, buttercups and fancy teatime cakes. I like mixed media, ready-made elements like milk bottles and crockery, decoupage and collage. Look closely and you'll see jewel-like stamps from decades ago, a tax disc. Things charged with a past life, another time. Teachers' gold stars, the odd coin. I'm a bit of a magpie."
