How do you see the differences in spaces (commercial or public), in which you have exhibited work?
I have initiated projects with other artists (recently Raul Rooney) and I have also been invited to develop shows in public spaces. I do not see public spaces as particularly different to commercial ones – or rather I see every organisation as different regardless of these labels. Every organisation has specific things it wants to achieve – I think it is important to work out what these things are and think about whether they correlate with ones aims as an artist.
