Art Art Art : Low-fi Leaflets

In 2001, using dictionary definitions, found language and well known quotations, I created and distributed a series of leaflets in Stratford upon Avon, my birthplace and where I lived.  Each leaflet contains a distinct theme – consumption, prejudice, objectification and art itself.
The idea of low-fi creation of work for the public realm and outside of the gallery interests me – being able to take challenging ideas and questions to ordinary people.  The work was influenced by the Artist Jenny Holzer, whose diverse methods of making and exhibiting art formed the basis of my dissertation entitled ‘Wordy Women’, which I completed at the same time as this work was being developed.
Here are a few images and if you would like to see the full set of four leaflets, please contact me.
