THIS & THAT
This residency at the Shenghua Art Centre in Nanjing brought British artists Susan Stockwell and Kate McGwire to work alongside local Chinese artists for 2 months. The residency culminated in the exhibition 'This & That'.
During the residency Susan investigated issues of trade, recycling, shifts of global wealth, mapping and material culture. She was able to experiment, explore new materials and work on a large scale; Susan sourced 3 tons of recycled cardboard boxes from a local recycling centre, she built a 3.5 metre high cube and made map works with local found materials such as calligraphy paper and tea. Whilst in China Susan traveled extensively and visited artist's studios, museums and galleries. This experience took her to Taiwan in the following year.
