(b. 1992, Bristol)

After marking its mid-point with #0.2 Workshop, IT IS PROBABLY BETTER TO START FROM ZERO presents a second intervention by each of the four artists exhibited previously, over the next four months. By coming back into the Window Space, the artists present the progress of their ongoing research and practice, taking into account the effects of their relation with the curators, the other artists and the space itself. For her second manifestation, Georgia presents Form for Amber, a further reflection upon the concepts that underline her work. Exploring form in a material and bureaucratic sense, the artist interrogates the value of official procedures in establishing and maintaining authenticity. Through her work with amber she invites the viewer to question the nature of the objects on display and, in doing so, questions the very processes by which truth is manufactured and assigned.

Georgia Spickett-Jones (b. 1992, Bristol) uses multiple forms and reflexive methods to consider the limitations of an archival art practice. IS IT ARROGANT TO USE HIS HAT? (2015) is an on-going project using personal artefacts, pseudo-science and curatorial hierarchies to uncover the author as both subject and object. She holds a BA (Hons) Fine Art: Print and Time-based Media at Wimbledon College of Art (2013-2015).
