Sometimes the creativity is in the discovery, the isolating. Tiny rocky cove. Clamber or swim to. Bit secret. Hours, days months before… who knows… the head had been found. Most likely lying at a strange angle amongst the jumble of boulders. Carefully placed to catch the light. Perched, watching. Waiting to be noticed by another. In a different time frame. Stumbling upon it, unsuspecting. United by the experience – but to whom? I take no credit. www. vam.ac.uk/worldbeach. Do it.
Artists in Residence at the V&A
With an exciting and ever-changing programme of artists and designers, there’s never a dull moment in our residency studios. We will give you an exclusive look into what it’s like to be in residence at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.
We have a thriving and exciting programme of artists in residence here at the Museum, with at least two practitioners inhabiting our studios at any given time.
Here we show the process of being an artist or designer in residence here at the V&A, with behind-the-scenes insights and stories from Residency Co-ordinator, Laura Southall, and the artists themselves.
