Following on from previous collaborations, artists Alyson Olson, Polly du Cros and Paul Bramley have been developing a dialogue between their practices, which lie between painting and sculpture with a mutual interest in discarded, ubiquitous materials. Process and materiality are at the root of their practices but each have a common interest in how the audience respond to the work in the space and the social comments that come from using these materials. For The Bankley Experiment at the Bankley Studios and Gallery in Levenshulme, they have continued this dialogue; but have focused on directing each other in the processes, removing the ‘hand’ of each other within the work and making decisions using the commands from each other to develop the installation. By orchestrating the work in this way, they have chosen to remove any ego that may be contained within the work and build a strong trust within the liminal space of the collaboration.
