Place at the Table

Place at the Table was developed for Pallant House Gallery, Chichester. The project entailed staging a meal for curators and artists around which craft and it relationship to the contemporary was debated. Following the meal a series of craft interventions were placed throughout the Queen Anne townhouse that houses the gallery and its collection.
