We get dirty making it so why not get dirty selling it?

Today, being a craftsperson involves thinking outside of the homogenous industrial design that infiltrates our modern lives.

Craftspeople take risks, putting their thoughts into three dimensions and then putting that in the public realm for critical scrutiny.

Apart from being excruciatingly exposed, new materials, new ideas all involve time ( at the cost of other earning activities ) and the possibility of failure - but also promise the delicious double edge of success. So exciting to realize in front of you, the thought that has been keeping you awake at night for months!

Guerrilla aims to keep alive some of that tension and creativity by presenting locally made crafts in an edgy and vibrant way, avoiding the static bright lights and hubris of the gallery space and just get out there… if we remove the expense and the tedium of gallery hanging then we have more time to make crazy objects for you !

Guerrilla will select a secret location and appear there for two hours only, using makeshift props to display their wares. Buyers form part of this performance sale at the mystery marketplace made available to you through the blog that morning.
