Building Up, Not Tearing Down
Building Up–Not Tearing Down was the result of a four-day residency involving six young artists from Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff. As a conclusion to the series of city visits ending with ‘December Eleven’ the residency was an attempt to create a microcosm, or Petri dish experiment of what might happen if the three cities worked together in the realisation of an exhibition or project. The invited artists were granted complete freedom to chose their thematic remit, manipulate the fabric of the building and decide how much they would co-operate with each other.
The residency opportunity was the result of a collaboration between ESP, Spike Island Associates and WARP.
