This week we have been instructed we must clear the FAD room in preparation for the exhibition.
Day One: Setting up the studio for the exhibition firstly consisted of clearing out old work, tables, drawers, scrap paper and rubbish, and throwing away any of my own work which I didn’t need or want anymore.
Day Two: As the studio was now clear and cleaner and there were no scraps of people’s work- we began setting up boards, sanding and filling them in to create a smooth surface on each one, then gum-stripping the cracks to make them look smooth and seamless.
Day Three and Four: Now the majority of the studio was seamless and clear- it was time to start painting. This included masking off all skirting boards and doors, all painting the walls inside the studio and the corridors a crisp white. Once dry, the masking tape could be peeled up and the floor cleaned.
Now, this has been completed -rather fast and efficiently due to good teamwork- we can now bring in out final pieces to set up our space for the exhibition.
