Rub a Tub Senior – Invisible Wash – Project Space Leeds 2011
Collaborative Project – Lubaina Himid + Susan Walsh
We make work about the invisible and the unrecorded. Rub a Tub Senior – Invisible Wash is our most recent collaboration. Usually Susan thinks about people with transient lives, the objects they rescue, carry with them and treasure in a new place. Lubaina overpaints old objects with patterns, portraits and texts to make new readings of established histories.
We have worked together making films about artists lives, old houses and museum collections.
Between us we have explored behind the ‘scenes’ at the V&A Museum, The Bowes Museum, The Hatton, The Geffrye Museum, The Tate, Stoke Museum and Platt Hall, so Artemis sounded like fun because we could take things away.
