An Endless Supply
Design studio and independent publishing activity run by Harry Blackett & Robin Kirkham, based in Birmingham.
An Endless Supply created the graphic material, interpretation , signage and website as well as a publication (book) about Peter, which can be bought from our shop. Both Harry and Robin have a long history with Grizedale Arts and Coniston, having deigned the Honest Shop and being involved in very many projects locally and internationally.
Graham Taylor is another person who has had a long-term involvement with Grizedale arts and Coniston and has been most interested in the approach to making that Peter embodies. Graham has developed the book and commissioned different writers to consider the impact and meaning of the works and their presentation.
Laure Provoust has commissioned Peter to make work for her for many years,beginning with 'Wantee', ( 2013 ) a work commissioned with Grizedale Arts and Tate Britain for inclusion in a retrospective exhibition on the wokr ofKurt Schwitters in the same year, titled 'Schwitters in Britain.' Laure's exhibition went on to win the turner prize, and spawned a body of work that she continues to develop today. Peter was commissioned to make paintings of the characters in Laure's film for inclusion in the installation, namely her fictional grandmother and grandfather. He has maintained these themes in his own work and often describes his enjoyment of working with Laure to set instructions as being fun, and opening up ideas for him.
Fernando Garcia Dory
'Story on tiles'
Fernando Garcia Dory is another long-term fan of Peter's work, and commissioned him to illustrate the story of Fernando's life, from art school to running a farm on a series of tiles, which formed a fireplace installed at his farm project INLAND. The project is an attempt to create a dynamic contemporary creative community in a rural location, connected to food production and farming.
Motoko Fujita photographed many of Peter's works for the publication and publicity material, and has also created an archive.
Hyuna A Kim worked with Jean Johnson, Audrey Grizedale, Rudy Kanhye and Cumbria Long Arm Quilter to complete the embroidered quilt on display.
The Village Table
The high tea for the opening was made by The Village Table; a collaborative group comprised of Lorraine Hodgson, Maria Benjamin and Karen Guthrie.
