About the project

The Social supported a residency where artists lived in a self-contained caravan on a vacant site for a week. The residency was focused on finding a person who is skilled with open dialogue, critical thinking, resourceful, resilient, flexible, and engages in a practice that is under-represented in the local visual arts. The street becomes the studio setting for their work.

French artist Cloe Beauregard created small objects through little manipulations of rubble.
