Ailleurs 2

Dr Stephen Felmingham (Photographer), Majella Clancy

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


A live collaborative printmaking project led by Dr. Majella Clancy and Dr. Stephen Felmingham with 12 printmaking students from Plymouth College of Art. The project explored ideas of encounter and exchange through Takuhon a press less printmaking technique. The exhibition culminated in a 10 metre takuhon tablecloth and a potluck meal conducted with the culinary implements used in the project. The exhibition and event was held at Centre Cazona Building, Santander

In Ailleurs 2 printmakers from PCA, Spanish partner Institutions and conference delegates anonymously exchanged utilitarian objects via post and digital means through which a visual response was evoked through direct print processes, before and during their journey to Santander by sea and land. The local and cultural specificity of the exchanged objects became further extrapolated through meeting in Santander, furthering their potential to become completed, altered or transformed through print. The student and staff collaborative exhibition examined ideas of exchange and encounter (local, cultural, physical, hidden, felt) within Ailleurs 2, to extend Ingold’s concept of ‘meshwork’, as a physical encounter of objects, materials, surfaces and people in fluid, non-hierarchical ways, articulating printmaking’s potential to make manifest shared experiences.

Ailleurs 2 was a live print project that continued to evolve and transform during Impact 10. This collaboration was further explored through the potlatch /potluck meal hosted by Ailleurs 2 where additionally, prints were exchanged within that encounter.
