Propositions as rules – Demeter Dykes & Ilse Black

This project is an exploration conducted between two artists, Demeter Dykes and Ilse Black. These artists both use “rules” or strategies as part of their practice and this is the focus of their collaboration. While they are working in the Artworks space, they will be making work in response to each others previous pieces, using rules which are drawn from a hat. The intention of this time working at Artworks is to kick start an ongoing project. The eventual outcomes of this project will include a body of works produced by each artist, where the artists have followed the same rules over the same period of time. The artists will document their thought processes and decision-making both through written text and images. This will hopefully open a dialogue about the function of rules, systems and mathematics in art.
