The purpose of this text is to articulate the research dimension of our collaborative practice, focusing on the significance of space and material. Our interdisciplinary collaboration comprises of myself (Grace Jones) and Phoebe Reed, we predominantly focus on sculpture, alongside aspects of drawing, painting, and film. Placing an emphasis upon sculpture, as our ever-changing modes of working are informed whilst still ‘thinking sculpturally’ (Day, 2012, P.5). The research aims to uncover the complexities we share surrounding space and material, whilst consistently drawing back to the way in which the work is made and why it is made. To uncover our thinking of space and material, there will be an exploration of artists and art movements which excite our collaborative practice. There will be reference to Arte Povera, Phyllida Barlow, Marcel Duchamp and Tracey Emin, identifying their ways of working, noting the gap the precedents left, that we felt had to be filled. In turn, the research aims to explore the way in which we work with materials as a collaborative that is unique to others, and why we feel the work needs to be made. This document is accompanied by an extensive body of images alongside a video documentation, showcasing the work we have created during our MA and highlighting the true nature of our making.
