The Body Completes the Artwork 2018, photographic prints
Aid & Abet is the collaboration of visual artists Sarah Evans and David Kefford, who create participatory projects, incorporating drawing, collage, sculpture and moving image – staged as events, performances, exhibitions and workshops.
The Body Completes the Artwork is the result of a workshop where participants were asked to explore the materiality of clay, sand and plaster – considering how touch can inform the making of the work.
Exploring sand-casting of natural objects made by imprinting hands and working with raw clay, participants created small-scale sculptures that would fit, complement or extend from the body through the action of holding.
