If You Could Collaborate

If You Could Collaborate is the fourth annual If You Could exhibition. Aiming to provide a platform for the finest creatives from all over the world to question their conventional working methods and outcomes. The contributors have been challenged to produce something a little unexpected, by working with a partner of their choosing from any discipline, profession or background. There is no brief to answer, or format to honour – the only limit being the enterprise and imagination of the artists involved, and a liberal 12 month deadline. Below are all of the pairings, and their outcomes.

Chrissie Macdonald & Marie O’Connor

Prior to Chrissie Macdonald’s public recognition for her cunningly crafted work for mobile network Orange, she was already an established member of the creative community. Part of the pioneering Peepshow Illustration collective, her work has developed from two to three dimensions, with her natural model making ability now commanding the attention it deserves.

Fellow Peepshow-er Marie O’Connor has been drafted in, and together the pair have created a series of figures made from salvaged wood and scrap material.
