Acrylic, 60mm x 44mm
Art Vending Machine, Exeter Phoenix Arts Centre
I’m not sure whether this counts as an ‘Exhibition’, but that’s the limitations of categories!
Anyway, the Art Vending Machine is a fun installation that sells playing card packet-sized art to the regular punter. It was installed at the Exeter Phoenix Arts Centre for Art Week Exeter 2017, stocked with zines, micro-ceramics, carvings, and digital media.
“Green|Blue: Drop Slow Tears”, the mini mirror tears, are one of eleven different multiples during the 2017/18 season. They are rotated on a monthly basis, and the Tears are available in November and I understand possibly December. But who knows? They may sell out early! And in any case, I suggest you keep popping in to collect all eleven!
