I created a mini version of the ‘Snake Charmer’ in collaboration with the National Fairground Archive. Black on gold card, all printed by hand at B&B screenprinting studio in Sheffield this mini print is embossed, signed and numbered on the front and the edition size is 150. This print edition was physically included in exactly 100 of the very special NFA20 fine print limited edition box set. A bit like the golden ticket in the chocolate bars but with much much much more chances to get it (50/50 to be exact -there are 200 box sets). For more information about the box set please contact the NFA.
MARVELOSA carries on at Western Bank library / The National Fairground Archive until 8th January 2015 for more information: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/library/exhibition/marvelosa
Just this week opened MARVELOSA a new exhibition celebrating the 20th anniversary of The National Fairground Archive. 5 artists including myself were commissioned to work around material available at the archive. MARVELOSA is on view until January 8 2015 at The Western Bank Library at The University Of Sheffield. It’s been an absolute pleasure working on this.
