Living in Print is an art installation that brings together a variety of different print processes in one room. These processes are Posters, Animations, Textiles and Prints.
DBA Editions print studio (Fiona de Bulat and Paul Atkins) have invited artists and groups to make prints with them in their workshop in Ramsgate and other locations in Thanet.
The idea is to explore our personal thoughts and experiences past and present. We will focus on life stories, moments, anecdotes, insights, as well as geographical surrounding influences, and how these factors influence the decisions we make. The focus on print is driven by both the prolific nature of the medium but also the idea that most print takes place in the workshop. A space for collaboration, an opportunity to explore processes, discuss ideas, and make as a group, inviting the chance encounters that occur from the use of presses and printmaking materials.
On the weekend before this exhibition, DBA Editions print studio will be running a poster workshop using wood type and traditional letterpress methods. Work made will be included in this Installation, see the ‘Dear Poster’ event on 23/24 July for further details
The body of work will be installed in the Waterloo room at the Falstaff Hotel in Addington Street, Ramsgate, from 12pm to 9pm.
