PARSONS & CHARLESWORTH BOOKLET ISSUE #1




photo (12)

Tim Parsons and I accepted an invitation from contemporary art collectors and exhibition hosts Stacie McCormick and Igor Jocic to show our work at the Home Is Where The Art Is gallery. As part of our stay, we completed a two week residency, working in the gallery’s recently overhauled studio to create and display another piece with their collection.

We used that time to create a manifesto booklet ‘Parsons & Charlesworth’ documenting the direction of new collaborative projects as a Chicago-based British husband and wife team working in the realm of experimental and speculative object making.

With the help of a few basic tools like a sewing machine, legal size paper and an inkjet printer we put together a book of images, sketches, diagrams, notes and paper models to speculate on various topics to explore.

First stab at looking at our shared and perhaps not shared but complementary values and interests!
