Prints’n’paper

 

bricolagekitchen, has a back story of Sheffield’s hot metal trades and  rag’n’bone picking. I have a key focus on the re-use and re-invention of discarded and devalued materials. As bricolagekitchen prints’n’paper, she salvages packaging, discarded books, public works handbooks, battered maps and architectural blueprints as a basis for letterpress printed pamphlets, notebooks, and mini-posters which highlight the politics, ethics and aesthetics of working with ‘rubbish’ . I am also an established scholar with publications such as  Junk: Art and Politics of Trash, 2011 and co-edited with J. Tormey, Art, Politics and the Pamphleteer,  and perform widely as an improvising musician and work internationally as an artist-curator.  Fabricate  at CADS Eagle Foundry Works studio, Attercliffe, Sheffield, formerly the palatial offices for Castmaster Rolls, featuring marble foyer and industrial kitsch mirror on its grand staircase.  

(Note: 50% of funds received for artworks goes to social movements archive Sparrrows’ Nest, Nottingham)
