Permindar is keen to consider how her work may be developed for space on offer in the Art & Design gallery. “I like adapting to different environments” she says. “The work changes depending on where it is sited”. She is looking forward to getting to know the space, and to investigate how it can add another layer of meaning to her work.
The particular features of the gallery are providing Permindar with opportunities to think about scale. While the space lends itself to working big, it also has nooks and crannies that would be ideal for small installations, representing different ideas that can be encountered as visitors journey through and around the gallery. She hopes to invite visitors to meander around the space on a journey of discovery, encountering artworks along the way.
During her residency, Permindar wants to work with her teddies further. In particular, she is interested in the response to black teddies. It is fascinating, she observes, how simply making a teddy black can completely transform people’s interpretation of the work.
