Kim Reddick - Crates

Crates near The Tower

Welcome to the Dwell exhibition and book. For a whole month we will be taking each artist's page and transforming it into a 3 dimensional dwelling. Each one of these small sculptures will be exhibited in public on the London streets.

Create your own Dwelling
Kim Reddick is today's Dwell artist.
Kim has exhibited in several magnet shows in recent years. Like his sister, Kim is a keen indoor wall climber. Kim is also a Karate student and Minecraft fan. Kim's recent interests include Manga drawings, art works, comics and films.

Kim's net is simply titled, 'Crates'.
We placed Crates on a wall in front of a bed of dried grasses in front of a glass fronted building near the Tower of London.
Crates allows the builder to create their own dwelling: stacking the crates however one chooses and using the poles to add a roof or other architectural feature.

Net for Crates
The Net for Crate is a classic box form as seen here.
Crates as a place to dwell suggests a rather basic dwelling, perhaps a place to curl up in a warehouse or dock as part of a journey or an adventure.

The idea of crates as a dwelling also  suggests a more sinister form of dwelling such as the illegal international trade in animals.

Don't forget to have a look at the next Collect Connect project, 'The Art of Caring' exhibition at The Rose Theatre in Kingston-upon-Thames. The theme is Caring/Care and it is FREE to enter.
