We  teamed up with The Higgins Bedford to allow three renowned artists access to the museum’s fantastic collections and to the people of Bedford themselves.

The Higgins Bedford is keen for a wide a range of people to engage with its collections in new and exciting ways. Working with artists is one way of doing this; it can open up all sorts of creative approaches to interpreting, displaying and using objects: Working together through the theme ‘ours’, we hope that it will bring new opportunities for local people to see the collections as part of their shared cultural heritage.

S Mark Gubb, Lyndall Phelps and Joshua Sofaer spent time in the town meeting local people, making art, and coming up with ideas for projects which the team hope to be able to take forward in the coming years.

S Mark Gubb works across a range of media incorporating sculpture, video, sound, installation and performance. The subjects for his work are drawn from the social and political culture he grew up in; an equal fascination with things he finds so great and so terrible about the world we live in.

Lyndall Phelps’ work relies on research and collaboration with a broad range of individuals and organisations whose interests reflect her own. She is drawn to an eclectic mix of subjects including history, flora, fauna, the military, flight, horticulture, architecture, the decorative arts and women’s craft.

Joshua Sofaeris an artist who is interested modes of collaboration and participation. Often with an irreverent use of humour, he plays with established forms of production, appropriating and reconfiguring the chat show, competition, lecture, or museum display.
