Mut Mut is a playful compression of the latin phrase mutatis mutandis meaning ‘the necessary changes having been made’. Moving away from the conventional context of contemporary Illustration, and it’s mediation through either print or screen, these illustrators fabricate ‘one off’ bespoke or sculptural pieces. The individual object relies on the audience to come to ‘it’ rather than ‘it’ go to the audience. This is a conscious and deliberate rejection of ephemeral and the reproduced traditionally associated with commercial practice. Instead we see a move towards the concrete, the tangible and the physical.
Assembly Point is a new contemporary arts space, established and run by collaborative artists James Edgar and Sam Walker, encompassing a gallery and studios in Peckham, South London.
