Collaborative Painting: Gifts and Transgressions
Carol Archer is an Assistant Professor in the Visual Studies Department at Lingnan
University, Hong Kong. She has lived in Hong Kong and Macao for the past eleven
years. In July 2009, Archer was awarded an artist’s residency at Bundanon, Australia.
She has had several exhibitions in Macau, Australia and Hong Kong. Archer also writes
about art in Macao, Hong Kong and China for the magazines Art Monthly Australia
and Macau Closer.
Carol Archer works with collaborative art projects, together with other collaborating
artists located all over the world. Her projects, challenge the romantic ideal of individual
authorship; the role of artistic intention and the notion that collaborative work, even
between friends, is simply a matter of harmonious co-operation. Archer examines the
significance of ‘rules’, and their transgression, in collaborative paintings, and the extent
to which such projects may be understood in terms of an artistic gift culture.
