Back from the dead

Quick updates on Lazare / The Space Between How Things Are And How We Want Them To Be... With the exhibition ended, we spent last month returning all the jewellery to their former-owners. The Mucem has since purchased the work (minus gold) and research for its archive/permanent collection. Elsewhere, our preparatory cyanotypes are selling like hot cak patisseries at Double V Gallery, Marseille (and a third of our fee is going to the people who lost/regained their gold). The Mécènes du Sud have given us a generous grant to make an art-book (documenting the project - plus lots more besides - and allowing the ephemeral work to live, and travel, on). We even got an extra bonus, winning their Prix des Lauréats 2018. Mmmm, money.
