Zoe Toolan is a multidisciplinary artist from the north, now living in Brighton. Social interaction, the nature of experience and our relationship with 'things' are recurring explorations within her practice, and she regards any workshop/event she hosts as artist/whisky professional as a time-based, participatory happening. Her live projects have been shown at various locations including Secret Garden Party, she has a piece in the Sluice_ archive, and she is currently a fine art tutor at the Art Academy in London. www.zklt.co.uk
If you have questions about this project, please contact Zoe.
This DIY is supported by The Marlborough Pub and Theatre.
