This exhibition features 11 actions inspired by Michael Craig Martin’s collection of memoiresque essays of ‘On Being an Artist’. After gleaming insights, advice and interesting quotes from Martin’s text, these quotes were misread and applied as instructions on being an artist in the style of Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ‘Do It’ Exhibitions conceived in the 1990s. The works share an insight into the journey of the artist(s), from conceptualisation to the realised artwork.
