A Place Unknown
A Place Unknown. Sunderland Indie artists have been making hybrid art; by lifting an idea from others work and developing it, to see where it went. “It’s like following a map across town and then taking an unknown back lane to get lost. Great fun!”
The artists have taken themselves out of their comfort zone and into someone else’s to take part in this “astonishing, challenging and exciting” new project!
A culmination of many artists “getting lost” in their work.
“We leave our egos at the door and just take a chance”, with the result of a totally fresh and unusual collection of work
