Makers of the Multiverse Multiple Crowdfunder Campaign
We are raising funds for Makers of the Multiverse, a sculptural pavilion, that will house a temporary art-market and a series of live events. The pavilion will be located at Exeter Quay between the 13th of May and the 10th of June and will be open every day.
The aim of the project is to help artists, designers and makers to sell their work as affordable multiples and develop a deeper relationship with an audience who may wish to buy their work through participating in live demos, workshops, talks and events. We want to explore new and interesting ways of selling artwork, craft and design and to examine how a DIY art market can help create an income for artists, designers and makers.
An open call to artists, designers and makers from the Exeter area and beyond means we are delighted to be collaborating with people from a wide range of backgrounds and levels of experience.100% of the profits from sales will go back to the artists, designers and makers, so we’re asking you to help support Makers of the Multiverse by buying one of our new multiples made specially for the project.
To help raise funds for the project Juneau Projects have made a new piece based on the objects that will make up the façade of the pavilion. Each of these multiples costs £50 and is laser cut, assembled, hand-painted and signed by the artists. In addition to this, if you would like to pledge £100 towards the project you can design your own object to be added to the piece: you just need to send us a photo or drawing of the object you would like included. It could be something you have made, your favourite ornament, something your partner or child has made or your dream art object. We will make a design based on your image and add it to the sculpture, creating a very unique version of the multiple just for you.
This is a great chance to buy an artwork by Juneau Projects (artist duo Ben Sadler and Philip Duckworth). They have exhibited widely and have had solo shows at venues including The Showroom, London, Tate Britain, London; and Ikon Gallery, Birmingham. They have featured in many group shows in the UK including British Art Show 6 and Tatton Park Biennial as well as exhibiting extensively internationally, including shows at PS1, New York; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt; and CAC, Vilnius.
They have work in numerous collections including The Zabludowicz Collection, The British Museum, New Art Gallery Walsall and KPN.
