Conversation Pieces presents a collection of new works produced by a group of seven Spike Island based studio artists, taking influence from Grant Kester’s concept that ‘we understand [a] work of art as a process of communicative exchange’.
Each participating artist nominates another to create a work in response, ultimately forming a connective exhibition of consequential works. Beginning with community-focused photographic artist Kamina Walton and ending with Charlie Tweed, each nomination is made on the basis of visual or conceptual intrigue between the artists. The handover conversations are an essential part of the project, affecting the influences of the next work created.
