The ‘Shopped’ project, was a project involving a village shop and a Gallery. Produce from the shop was cast into bronze, and placed back on the shelves. Other produce was transferred from the shop to the gallery to exhibit as art . The idea was to look at the appropriateness of the selling context, and to see how changing the material of an object can effect the way its perceived. Yoxford village school was also involved through workshops and the creation of a sculpture garden, made from the amounts of produce sold in the shop in a week of trading.

This project was funded by the Arts Council.
