Collect 2011

I was asked to speak at a event on Friday at the V&A  and afterwards we all went off to visit Collect at the Saatchi gallery.  What stood out for me this year  was the project space on the 2nd floor. This was new for this year's  show and presented a selection of artists who created installation work  to complement the fair.   Installations included a living wall by Rosa Nguyen which was a wonderful ever changing landscape of organic glass forms and plants  and the large-scale collaborative installation from Ptolemy Mann and Lubna Chowdhary  which was a colour feast. It was really exciting to see makers given the opporutninty to show this type of installation work within the context of Collect and to have the opportunity to speak to the makers directly.
