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.

A Foundation Gallery, Rochelle School

Max Lamb & Gemma Holt

Having been brought up in rural Cornwall, Max Lamb has always been heavily influenced by his surroundings. Keen to experiment with the properties and potential of different materials, Max isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty – often using raw production methods and techniques to create his wonderfully personal furniture pieces.

Finally finding the excuse to collaborate with his girlfriend Gemma Holt, the pair will be installing a very special, site-specific bench that uses the gallery floor’s herringbone pattern as a footprint.
