Cracked Eggs is a mutable response to the copious work of Christopher Joseph Holme (1952-2010). Over the past year four creative practitioners; Aliyah Hussain, Clara Casian, David Wilkinson and Michael Redmond have been commissioned to work with, and to respond to this remarkable collection. Holme was an unknown painter who can be construed as an outsider artist, but who’s oeuvre also contradicts such a designation, comprising paintings, sketchbooks and diaries. Each participant had a prior interest in, or affinity with ‘outsider art’, and through their individual observations have produced responses in writing, drawing, photography, film and sound that deal with place, family, cultural history and the nature of collections. These bodies of work are presented as interlocking, but independently available chapters in a publication, designed by Frau Lorenz and produced and edited by Lauren Velvick.
