Following on from their very recent G39 Unit(E) collaborative investigation...

'This residency will solidify a new collaborative partnership between myself Kelly Best a painter,

and Mark Houghton, a sculptor. Our project will see us working firstly at ARCADECARDIFF,

followed by Mark Devereux Projects, at Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, in an experimental

collaborative touring exhibition aimed at drawing attention to two emerging artists based in


The project will begin with an investigative production stage, subsequently formalizing ideas

into new works for exhibition. These works will be informed by each other's practice, but also

draw inspiration from the spaces where they will be created and shown. We will explore the

visual overlaps and thematic parallels between our work, as well as investigating the links

between a primarily 2D and 3D practice.

A 10-day development period in ARCADECARDIFF will result in a finalised exhibition open

to the public for 2 weeks.

ARCADECARDIFF is interesting as it poses two opposing gallery

spaces, which will allow for conversations to occur between the two individual spaces, as

well as between our work. Integrating the two practices will lead to stimulating and engaging

experiences for a diverse audience to encounter alongside the interesting concept that

challenges the role of the author of an exhibition within a wider social context.

The new works made in ARCADECARDIFF will subsequently tour to Mark Devereux Projects

for further exploration of the work within a new visual context.'
