you're at bricoleur* & book artist Lilla Duignan’s webspace, working collaboratively she is creative director of the group tribe
after a brief a fruitful sabbatical, they are celebrating working together again!


* one who makes work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available; a work created by such a process. 

...along the way we have used bricolage to realise our visions, as a way to learn, and to solve problems - trying things out & playing around....we thus aspire to continue on our fluxus ways:

tribe members Allil Nangi-Ud, Teri Makassih, Anne On, & Phil Atterleigh

presently
Lilla has just returned from taking up an independent artist's residency in Venice, at the international scuola grafica: the watery city's mystery has infused her work and her spirit.....her objectives were to contribute, develop the themes of mash-up & giftprogress hybrid printmaking skills, be rejuvenated and to follow creative joy.....as it turned out the latter was the most important thing....the dreamy city, the fellow artists and being far from home added much magic.

Look here at our 'artists' books' page and explore some of the resultant project, lost & found in Venezia

see Lilla's short moving image piece, Shrine to Venezia

....and spontaneous magic in Venice experienced with artist Jon Cattapan: see his short video of Tony Green and Angelo playing canal-side in the sunshine, and what ensued....

Plus the Venice trip proved to be a pilgrimage: a journey away from home to spiritual wellbeing

unashamedly bookish...
artists' books club at UWE is still going (founded by Lilla) and even has a relative in ABCD - Artists' Book Club at the Dove

Wild Converstions Press has a new website,
a ‘not-for profit’ publishing co-operative, it is primarily concerned with supporting and publishing inter-disciplinary and other creative work.
(Lilla is a member of the editorial board)

we concur with Allil when he says 'the perfect space in which mystery meets matter and conjoins, is for us the book'
