Lawrence Epps – The Shit Job Machine

 TheShitJobMachine7

 

 

The Frontroom is proud to present the installation The Shit Job Machine by Artist Lawrence Epps starting January 2014.

Epps is an artist best known for his large scale installations and has exhibited in galleries, museums and sculpture parks in the UK and abroad. His recent pavilion, Take Stock, at the 2013 British Ceramics Biennial attracted thousands of visitors to take away a unit each until the whole sculpture was dismantled over the course of the show.  The sculpture was then replaced with a projection of the disappearing sculpture, played in reverse – the taking became the making.

 

Epps was also responsible for the 8,000 little clay men which appeared on the streets of Manchester as part of his installation Human Resources at FutureEverything in 2012. Informed by a mass Twitter response the public were invited to pick up and take home the small terracotta workers if they found them.

The Shit Job Machine is accompanied by texts created by Lawrence Epps and poet and writer Holly Corfield Carr, which will be available at the show.

 

Holly Corfield Carr is a poet and writer based in Bristol.  Her work appears in print and performance across the UK, with recent publications in Ambit, Aesthetica, Poetry London, Iota and The Island Review.  She received an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors in 2012 and was the 2013 Writer-in-Residence at Spike Island, with support from Arts Council England.

I just went to a lovely talk this afternoon by Italian illustrator author Beatrice Alemagna. Her work really inspires me, it’s textural and fun and full of life.
