Duke Of Cornwall: The Chambermaid

I have been invited by Plymouth based Platform P to resurrect the Chambermaid - for their art extravaganza weekend, due to coincide with the British Art Show in November. I am really pleased to be involved and am putting out a call for miniature artist's multiples for the Chambermaids trolley. The Chamber maid was first performed at Trajector Art Fair Brussels earlier this year, and was part of the Motel Kandinski project.
Here is the call below:
Title: The Chambermaid at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel

What: Small works and multiples responding to the idea of the Hotel.

Anna Francis will be taking a miniature gallery (housed on a hotel hospitality trolley) to the ‘Platform P’ weekend takeover at the historic Duke of Cornwall Hotel. This event is a British Art Show Fringe event. Anna will be representing the selected artists, acting as curator, and Chambermaid simultaneously.

To Apply: If you would like Anna to represent you at the event, then simply send in a proposal for your miniature art work/multiples responding to the theme of The Hotel. The item(s) should be no bigger than an ordinary sized match box. The items will be for sale and the artists will receive 60% of any sales made.

You may like to consider Hotel memorabilia, ie. miniature sewing kits, toiletries and other holiday survival items.

Proposal: no longer than 100 words to explain your approach and response idea.

An image/sketch of your proposed item(s).

Up to 3 images of previous works.

A 250 word statement about your practice (for purposes of representation and publicity at the event.)

Blog or Website addresses.

Closing Date for Applications: Monday, 17th October 2011
