Seventeen artworks are arriving one by one on my doorstep. It's like Christmas and birthdays rolled into one - except you could never guess what's inside these fabulous packages. The artists have been commissioned to respond to the theme Acts of Resistance, and I have no idea how they will interpret that. I'm rushing to open them, but not knowing what's in there I have to be careful. Some are very delicate!
For the first groving I am delighted to be working with fantastic artists Alban Low, Alison Carlier, Amilia Graham, Bryan Benge, Chris Brown, Dean Reddick, Deborah Pipe, Eskild Beck, Jacquie Campbell, Julia Manheim, Sarah Sabin and Simon Brewster. They have made 17 new works of art - each less than 5cm x 5cm - which will be put out on the streets of Bury St Edmunds from 20 August.
Writers Astra Papachristodoulou, Amilia Graham, Ed Arantus, Kevin Acott, Lynda Turbet, Lynn Whitehead, Phil Barrett, Natalie Low, Sue Burge and Tim Welton are responding to the artworks. Images of the artworks in situ and the written responses will be posted here each day, and at http://collectconnect.blogspot.com/.
