THE CLUNKER 2020
As a departure from my usual practice, a collection of handmade 'Bug-Badges' are ready to be installed in THE CLUNKER'.
Established in 2016, THE CLUNKER was launched a year later as an eclectic challenge to traditional formats of artistic display. Created by Jake Francis and Davide Lakshmanasamy, the idea was devised by the pair in response to an underwhelming ‘interactive exhibition’. Making its debut alongside the 2017 NNF (Norfolk & Norwich Festival), THE CLUNKER has now exhibited the wares of over 60 international and local artists across a number of locations. Most recently, this has included Manifest Arts Festival 2019, a programme devised by groups in Manchester to provide interactive artworks to visitors.
In May 2020, THE CLUNKER returned to NNF with plans to exhibit my 'Bug Badges' and works from other international collections of both old and new artists, however with the festival shows postponed due to the current corona virus climate, an alternative future exhibition is set to take place in the Autumn / Winter of 2020.
Hopefully, 'Bug Badges' will be unique art that you can get from 'The Clunker' vending machine in the near future.
