Yoke and Zoom are Nina Coulson and Alex Johnson. Based in Malvern, Worcestershire, their collaborative work investigates the politics of art production in the public realm.
During their 3 month residency, Yoke and Zoom will create a small mobile cottage in the foyer of the gallery by renovating a1957, 2-berth caravan.
By adding new features such as a removable thatch for the roof and permanent faux timber beams onto the exterior, Yoke and Zoom will transform the caravan into a mock Tudor idyll. Having the potential to park anywhere and to be moved through many environments, the artwork becomes a mutable, recreational space and a provider for shelter.
Yoke and Zoom will be taking the completed Mobile Caravan outside into Gallery Square for visitors to enter and explore on Tuesday 1 July and Saturday 5 July 11am-3pm. Drop by for a slice of cake and a cup of tea!
