The Tallest Poppy Artist Residency

June 10, 2009

The Tallest Poppy Residency is a small, simple program. Artists spend two days (10am-2.30pm) in the restaurant making and/or doing a project of their choice. At the end of this time, the artist will show/perform the work in an agreed place in the restaurant (the corridor leading to the loo? The polar bear window?) for an agreed period of time and it will also be recorded on this blog. If the restaurant gets busy the artist may have to move to a smaller table but otherwise he/she’ll be left to his/her own devices in between being fed delicious food. 

 

How to apply

Just write us a letter explaining why you want to do the residency and describe your idea. One side of paper should do the trick. Send a coupla pictures as well, if you like but you don’t have to. It’d be useful if you put a few tentative dates as well, bear in mind this is a pretty popular residency and you may have a bit of a wait. Address your letter to ms. hannah_g, she’s directing this thing, and post it to her care of The Tallest Poppy. Please don’t phone up about it- we’re very busy and don’t want to mix up the tomato ketchup with the chilli sauce because we are trying to answer a question that you should probably be asking hannah_g.  She’s very friendly, often quite organised and always happy to help.

 

No resumes, please.
