Redsuit Open Call 2011 (now closed)
FEB 2011 :CONTRIBUTIONS ARE INVITED.........
FOR A PHOTOGRAPHIC INSTALLATION/EXHIBITION IN
THE LANG BYRE GALLERY
AT THE WOODEND BARN ARTS CENTRE
BANCHORY, ABERDEENSHIRE, SCOTLAND, IN MAY 2011.
The Redsuit Project was conceived in 2009 and presented initially
in 2010 at Left Bank Gallery in Tarland, Aberdeenshire by as part of the FARLAND exhibition. I asked a number of people, including amateur photographers and professional artists, to take a disposable red coverall and photograph it in a place of their choice.
The performative, playful and poetic images taken in places near and far, encourage us to reconsider where and how we position ourselves within the worlds around us.
I am now now calling for more participants: to respond to the Redsuit theme, and help create an evocative group artwork which will be installed in the Lang Byre Gallery throughout May.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
1. Get your redsuit!
Red coveralls can be purchased from the Woodend Barn reception desk for £5, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a postal delivery.
Also can be bought on this website through Paypal : please click here>
2. Take a photograph featuring a redsuit.
If the red coverall is worn as a ‘costume’, the identity of the wearer must be concealed, e.g. photographed from the rear. The redsuit can also be placed as an object, within the photograph.
The image should be landscape format.
A short accompanying text is requested, but is not essential.
