PRESENCE is a set of cards to be used as ‘A divining tool for journeys through the restless territories and blurred boundaries of art in the social or public realm.’ The cards are a creative tool to explore and reveal aspects of a project or practice and to provoke discussion and exploration. PRESENCE, is the outcome of an art commission by Jo Hodges and Robbie Coleman that emerged from Art_Inbetween.
PRESENCE is a research led response to some of the questions that arose during the Art_Inbetween Summit held at The Stove Network earlier in 2016. The summit attempted to describe the distinctiveness of an evolving ‘rural’ contemporary arts practice with an emphasis on social/participatory/public art across the UK and our starting point was to try and understand this distinctiveness.
