Info on participants:  

Avril Corroon is an artist from Ireland. She works with moving image, performance, and sculpture to examine precarious living conditions in the city such as the housing crisis. Currently she is working on ‘Got Damp’, a project with TACO in Thamesmead exploring qualities of damp housing as both harmful and lively material.   

Paul Johnson (born 1972) work is anchored by an enquiry into the way objects and images can transition historically, mentally and physically when filtered through the hands of the artist. A recent exhibition at Camden Arts Centre involved dismantling his entire studio, almost like mining he reconstructed fragments to re-examine this space as a deep time exploration, sculptural object and visionary environment.  

Katrina Palmer’s artworks employ found objects and writing. Her exhibitions include Hello Retreat (England’s Creative Coast, 2021), The Coffin Jump (Yorkshire Sculpture Park, 14-18 NOW, 2018); The Necropolitan Line (Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, 2015); and End Matter (Artangel with BBC Radio 4, 2015). Among her publications are The Fabricator’s Tale and The Dark Object (Book Works, 2010, 2015).  

Rehana Zaman is an artist from Heckmondwike based in London. Her work speaks to the entanglement of personal experience and social life, where moments of intimacy are framed against structures of authority. Conversation and cooperative methods sit at the heart of her practice. Presentations include Serpentine Projects, London, (forthcoming 2022), British Art Show 9, and Trinity Square Video, Toronto.
