The fabric of the city’s history commissioned for Plymouth Art Weekender 2019
The PAW Community Engagement Commission this year is with Dartmoor-based artists Tabatha Andrews and Tim Bolton. Andrews makes performative installations that explore how materials and energy can trigger memory and unsettle the senses. Her work responds to many different sites and contexts including galleries, forests, public spaces and hospitals, and she has worked with a variety of communities. Bolton is a sculptor and former vice-principal at Plymouth College of Art who previously worked in ceramics and glass. Tim and Tabatha are collaborating with seamstresses who worked at the original Jaeger textiles and clothes-making factory on the city’s Union Street. Together they will be developing a series of eclectic, bespoke designs, borne from textile patterns to create objects and interactive activities that passers-by can engage with as part of a sculptural project entitled MAKE IT UP.
