The Obsessive Compulsive Practice

Much art is born out of the need to make, a distracting busyness, a positive manifestation of anxiety.

Obsessive collecting and hoarding, painstaking, repetitive use of materials or processes, many artists have some sort of obsessive compulsive behaviours.

The purpose of 'The Obsessive Compulsive Practice' is to highlight theses methods; whether this is the process of making work, the research of objects and ideas or an over-immersion of processes.

Looking for artists of any discipline who compile, repeat, collect, hoard, fixate, assemble, submerge or observe these behaviours.

'The Obsessive Compulsive Practice' will explore and combine the different materialisation of these.

To submit work for consideration please send up to three images no bigger than 1MB each (or link to film or performance, no longer than five minutes) plus a statement of up to 150 words by email to Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.

Curated by Anya Beaumont and Clare Winnan.
