Kevin Boardman, a Manchester based artist, and I are showing a collaborative work at The Notice Board between May 15 and June 15th. Over the last year we have taken it in turns to work on a single sheet of A1 white paper – posting it, back and forth, in the same brown envelope 12 times. The exhibition temporarily halts the process and reveals the works current combined and woven state. When the show ends we will continue. We have never met or spoken and are in many ways strangers, yet our pen-pal like friendship has brought us into a conversation, which has become richer over time. The flag features work by both of us sewn together.
