The smell of feet, the smell of sweat, the smell of cider. ‘Claw, Craw and the Devil‘ looks to assemble, coax and scooch a motivated, forceful and at times deeply self-conscious group of technicians, designers, chefs and conspirators into an orderly rabble. Nodging together interests in manufacture and production, the possibilities of active usership and collective responsibility grinded with the future lack of a decent inner-city furniture store, a programme of proposals and prototypes unravels throughout March.
Crannied into the city each gesture, sometimes mobile, sometimes slow replaces, refurbishes and fits. It wanders the keening noise of a city where a butcher and trophy store share the keek of a black / cairn-hole area. Where products exhibited have the possibility to go door-to-door but may fall at the fagary of the opening night and rather than leech and scarper an amateur furniture maker shape-shifts, faces the cities demands and turns us back towards the river.
Reluctant but genuine, it blares, we live here. This is where we live.
