The Curiosity Club members have been unable to meet up as a group for several weeks now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in the mean time my son Kallum and I have found a way to collaborate, making art together that helps Kallum express his experience of lockdown as someone living with autism and learning disabilities.

We are really pleased that this is being supported by New Art West Midlands through their bursary scheme.

There are lots of things that Kallum has found difficult but one in particular is the Thursday evening doorstep clapping. As both a sensory overload and a breach of normal public etiquette Kallum finds it intolerable and has to take refuge at our allotment until the clapping in the street has stopped.

Even though Bill and I are not currently working together in the studio we have discovered we can collaborate from a distance, continuing to explore The Curiosity Club neighbourhood.

The suns persistent arc across the sky, a river flows ever onwards, natures continuing rhythm...

'Investigating time and place

Slowed

Creating an analogue flow that is neither complete nor perfect

But created by hand

When the speed of the process is slowed

There is time to reflect and remember'


Leonard Koren, 2008
