Will Cruickshank, Emily Speed, Kirsty Tinkler and Laura White will be starting from scratch, aside from the provision of the space, a modest budget and sparse materials, exploring the idea of Small Scale Survival through an experimental and mutually supportive approach.
The artists have been selected by Aid & Abet because of their everyday resourcefulness and DIY aesthetics. Their chosen materials, production methods, means of finance and tactics seem to equip them particularly well with the strategies needed to function as an artist in today 19s society.
Aid & Abet is an artist run contemporary art space, co-founded by Sarah Evans, David Kefford and CJ Mahony. Aid & Abet is a peer organisation supporting regional, national and international artists in the production and presentation of contemporary art across all art forms. Aid & Abet functions as a supportive organisation to provide a creative platform and outlet for artistic practice with a particular interest in cross-disciplinary, self initiated and DIY approaches and the utilisation of diverse methods of distribution
