Event Details

LOCAL is a new badge-work by Plymouth-based artists LOW PROFILE. During PAW17, LOW PROFILE will be selling ‘LOCAL’ badges (@ £5 each) via a network of specially recruited artists who are ‘local’ to Plymouth (who live/work in, or near the city). Recruited artists will take a 50% cut of the sale price (mirroring commercial markup) generating a micro-income through their availability as a point-of-sale for the badges. LOCAL tests & suggests alternative economies for artists practices that are generous in spirit & considerate towards how artists sustain, support and resource their work.

This limited edition wearable artwork interrogates, and aims to generate discussion around, what it means to be ‘local’/‘a local’. It questions the positive and negative implications of being ‘local’ (as an artist, or as any individual making ties to a place) and is suggestive of the complex & layered connotations of this word/name. At what point and in what moment/context are you local? During PAW17 those choosing to wear/invest in a LOCAL badge are encouraged to seek each other out, form temporary alliances & new productive networks.
