James Batchelor & Collaborators

Bek Berger

Artist Statement

 

' I create and support experimental work that sits in between art forms and travels across borders. I practice sitting upon and between art forms, always in collaboration with an artist or a community. It’s in the in-betweens in which curiosity can truly be sparked.'
