SOCON presents Hopscotch, a collaborative project by A.Bellamy and M.Pottle.
Drawing on the idea of Hopscotch, this abandoned office is transformed into a playground in which the artists move through a series of spaces, changing, adding and subtracting each week, playing with contrasting objects and unlikely combinations, exploring the ambiguous and ‘interim’ existence of the location. Structures, like people, move between phases of their existence, retaining past experiences, whilst growing into new ones. Looking at the idea of the ‘in-between’, the artists continually explore, edit, and redefine the space, highlighting the contrast between its former, dull and ‘risk averse’ existence and the new content which now redeems it.
A.Bellamy and M.Pottle, 2016
The Artists graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2015 and live locally.
