Event: Cut & Paste

Working with Tate Liverpool, Light Night Liverpool and LOOK/15, Miniclick created CUT & PASTE, a new participatory event that responded to the Tate’s exhibition of György Kepes’ work. We were invited by LOOK/15 to host the event at Tate on their launch night which also coincided with Liverpool’s Light Night.

Located in the gallery, amongst Kepes’ work, and opening on Friday 15th May 2015, we proceeded to make a beautifully chaotic mess as almost 400 visitors in one evening (and a further couple of hundred the next day), cut and spliced, stuck and pasted images from a range of sources to create their own one-off works of photomontage art.

We’d run an event in Liverpool two years earlier so we were well aware of this incredible city’s enthusiasm for this kind of thing, but even then we were completely taken aback by the public’s response. What was especially enjoyable was that the majority of the people who got involved were not necessarily part of the ‘photography community’ and 90% of the final collages were made by people aged between 3 and 16 yrs old. Everyone, from toddlers, to a gang of Girl Guides, to grown ups threw themselves into it and the results were incredible.

We had over 50 photomontages created and you can see all of them below. We also made a ‘zine featuring a selection (picked at random) of the works, which also features an essay by Gemma Padley and was produced in about 40hrs, from scratch!
