Skip Gallery will return to its inaugural space in the car parking space opposite 19 Hoxton Square, London N1 6PB, but it’s intended that Skip Gallery will be a roving event for future installations. The Skip Gallery concept is created by co-founders and creative partners Catherine Borowski and Lee Baker, two London based artists and creatives whose idea was to take the mundane, the everyday and everyplace and to reimagine them.
The work will be launched in Hoxton Square on Tuesday 13th June.
Lee Baker commented "Because skips are so prevalent and familiar to the public, there is an intrinsic curiosity that comes from the transformation of such an iconic object. Preconceptions about skips and their uses feed into the unexpected and witty quality of the space, which sets up the audience to be more accepting of the artwork itself."
Catherine Borowski says “Skip Gallery, and our return to Hoxton Square, was initially as an artistic response to the fact that affordable space to work and show in London is increasingly unavailable. The irony that we now have the incredible David Shrigley “in” our gallery is not lost.”
Catherine Borowski is also an award winning placemaker and founder of PRODUCE UK a collaborative placemaking group that has been behind some of the most exciting urban developments in the UK. PRODUCE UK has worked with a range of clients including Lumiere Light Festival, London Festival of Architecture, Vanity Fair, Nike and Adidas
