FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – FRIDAY 26 MAY 2017
CROSHARE TO PRESENT TRAWL, A PARTICIPATORY INSTALLATION CELEBRATING PORTSMOUTH’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SEA, AS PART OF PORTSMOUTH FESTIVITIES 2017
Part crochet workshop, part participatory art project, part good old-fashioned get together, Croshare heads to Aspex, a contemporary gallery in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, on Sunday 18 June as part of the programme of events for the 18th annual Portsmouth Festivities.
What if no one likes it?
What if no one comes to see it?
What if I don’t manage to finish it?
What if I can’t realise my idea?
What if it just doesn’t go to plan?
Practically every artist asks themselves a question along those lines about practically every piece of work. It’s natural. It’s not only part of the creative process, but it’s human. And behind each of these questions is another – almost the same one, every time: What if I fail? Well… What if you do?
Croshare is proud to announce its participation in Portsmouth Festivities 2017. This Sunday 18 June at Aspex in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, Croshare will welcome members of the public to Trawl: a fun, large and bright crochet installation celebrating Portsmouth’s long and proud relationship with the sea, as well as a reminder of our responsibility in caring for it. And, what’s more, from now until Portsmouth Festivities starts, you have the opportunity to make or give us something that will become part of this installation.
