you're at book artist & bricoleur Lilla Duignan's web space

she is creative director of the group tribe, who after a brief & fruitful winter hibernation, are celebrating working collaboratively together again!

...we use bricolage - using what is to hand - to realise our visions, as a means to making and 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 along with Lilla are:- Allil Nangi-Ud, Teri Makassih, Anne On, & Phil Atterleigh

presently
Lilla aspires to return to Venice: on her independent artist's residency at the international scuola grafica the watery city's mysteriousness 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...

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

Logon

Venice continued:  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, outside Dodo's 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'
