AuthorsFisher, Craig and Swann, Debra

Nottingham based artists Craig Fisher and Debra Swann were invited by curator Abi Spinks to present their work in a two-person exhibition utilising three cabinets of the Small Collections Room at Nottingham Contemporary. The exhibition explores their interest in ideas of representation. Fisher exhibits a range of work made specifically for the context of the Small Collections Room, using the cabinets to reconsider the staging and display of works such as his ongoing series, ‘Homemade Devices’.
In the fourth cabinet Fisher curates a group exhibition 'In Miniature' as part of Fisher’s ongoing curatorial project, 'Mrs Rick’s Cupboard' at Primary. Contemporary artists are asked to develop artworks to be presented within the unconventional gallery setting - a walk in cupboard. Exhibiting artists: Roy Brown, Louisa Chambers, Laura McCafferty, David Ersser, Lynn Fulton, Kit Poulson, Derek Sprawson, Emma Talbot and Paul Westcombe.
