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.

Julien Vallée & Nicolas Burrows

I’m not sure if you can describe one as young as Julien Vallée as an expert in his field, but he must be very close. Dexterous hands and an enthusiasm to make his ideas reality have held him in good stead and seen him pick up many high-profile commissions and admirers. As adept at creating either static or moving images, Julien always seems to add an unmistakable stamp of quality execution to everything he does.

Deciding to choose Nicolas Burrows from Leeds collective Nous Vous, Julien has been more than a little ambitious, making an interactive piece, challenging the way in which we use and treat the things on our desks.
