Stardust Boogie Woogie Version II 6-11 July
Curator: Louise Ashcroft
Artists: Charlesworth, Lewandowski & Mann; Mark Selby, Matt Ager, Thorbjorn Andersen, Patricia Lennox-Boyd, Blue Curry, The Royal Standard Collective.
Stardust Boogie Woogie is based on the concepts of collaboration explored in Surrealist games such as ‘Exquisite Corpse’ and parallel collage.
Louise Ashcroft, curator of Departure Gallery, has invited the collective Charlesworth, Lewandowski & Mann to create a framework structure onto which other artists will build from day to day to create a final collaborative sculpture.
The artists have been nominated by the curator and by five experimental spaces – James Taylor, The Royal Standard, Schwartz Gallery, Supplement and The Woodmill.
Ashcroft describes the process as 'collaboration as an anarchic struggle between imposing, perhaps contradictory visions. This method of co-authorship parallels the ways that cultures and histories develop'.
Stardust Boogie Woogie is one show in five radically different versions, realised by five different curators over five weeks. This is a Monika Bobinska project, for more info see
