My name is Jamie Crawford. I am artist in residence alongside Cluster, a new site-specific commission by UK basket maker Annemarie O’Sullivan for the Fabrica gallery in Brighton running from 7 July – 27 August. Prompted by the exhibition, my role will be to research, explore and tell stories in the gallery.
In this blog you will be able to follow my process of enquiry into the value and purposes of storytelling today. My starting point is a consideration of the shared status of storytelling and weaving (including basketmaking) as traditional and sometimes overlooked artforms.
Two questions I shall be exploring in this blog and in events at Fabrica are:
What place is there for the old stories today?
How might those stories best be told?
