AboutTeam Artists Possessed hot on the heels of their âPossession' show at the Exchange, Penzance present this new body of posters and collages which have lead to developing ideas for video, performance and sculpture.àÂ
Their journey began when the possessed artist Jesse Leroy-Smith made an incredible discovery last summer with artist Paul Becker. When walking on the moors they discovered strange artifacts dotted off the beaten track, whilst investigating this wonderful phenomena they found these art pieces belonged to the outsider artist Palmer White.
This elusive wanderer takes on many guises and Jesse found several artists to help understand and celeberate this enigma. Jesse Leroy-Smith, Richard Ballinger, Sam Bassett and Chris Priest, created a large body of possessed posters for the possession show, many sold and now adorn art collectors' walls. Later Ballinger whilst still under the spell of being possessed, decided the best way forward was to call the team âtaap .......team artists are possessed'.
