The Suitcase Project is an initiative put together by Jude Gidney and inspired by the band The Suitcase Dwellers that were guests at her studio over the weekend of the April Woodend Studios Open Art Fair.
It involved photographing the majority of visitors to the studio, each being given the opportunity to interact with a vintage suitcase that is a prop in the studio. the interactions became more and more innovative as the weekend went on, each visitor trying to outdo the previous. At the end of the weekend we had a visit from one of the visiting artists that also works as a designer for a suitcase company. You will find her words about the history of the case below.
