Sinead McKeever’s collaborative work for the ‘Expanded Studio Project’ reviewed by Slavka Sverakova

Sinead McKeever recently participated in the Expanded Studio Project a responsive collaboration between 30 artists from two different cities, Nottingham and Belfast.

In her review Sverakova followed two cases:

  1. Linguistic Ambiguity, which involved the transformation of matter by McKeever and Kashif Nadim Chaudry (Nottingham) in relation to a simple command, e.g. Cleanse and Stain and Transition.
  2. The haptic exploration of metal and clay by Christine Stevens (Nottingham) and McKeever.

For Linguistic Ambiguity the artists named their intention as “addressing ritual, identity and cultural heritage.” Whereas Stevens and McKeever named the healing of trauma as their leading subject for The haptic exploration of metal and clay.
