VARC – Artist Publications 2 - 2014 - date

Visual Arts in Rural Communities (VARC) run an annual Artist In Residence programme in Tarset, Highgreen. With each residency VARC aims to achieve a balance between the opportunity for the artist to develop and exhibit new work, and the opportunity for local people to benefit from the programme of engagement with the artist.

We have been delighted to produce the annual end of residency catalogues for artists Helen Pailing in 2014 and Khosro Adibi in 2015. The physical format remains consistent but the nature of the work and the way in which it is documented continues to evolve, with these two publications alone spanning sculpture made from plastics and other found objects, drawing and participatory events, and land art, temporal sculpture and video installation respectively.
