Working on ‘Big Dinner’ exhibition at Limbo, Margate

Pipe has recently been working with Limbo, an exciting artist led arts space in Margate, on their current exhibition Big Dinner. This is the first of a series of shows which will make up their Guests series.

For this series Limbo “invites an established artist who either lives, works or has worked in Kent to take on the role of host, and to themselves invite others to collaborate with them on a project of their choosing.” In the case of Big Dinner, the artist is Matthew Darbyshire.

As part of our work with Limbo, Pipe has written an essay for this show. The essay is titled Individualism, mutualism and ‘Big Dinner’ and can be accessed through Limbo’s website. In addition to this, there you can find the show’s press release, all other relevant information and discover what else is going on at Limbo - all links can be found on the appropriate text here.

Here is a selection of some of Pipe’s photographs from Big Dinner. Captions include the works’ titles and the artists responsible.
