Collective Exchange was originally set up by three creatives; Ina Norrman, Kate Grimes and Sarah Higgins during a residency in 2016 at Middlesex University.
It is a collective interested in exploring social, historical and site-specific narratives through processes of making.
Ina Norrman is a designer-maker with a background in psychology and her work is guided by her interest in people and place. Psychological and philosophical ideas are central to her work and she has a keen interest in how processes of making can engage people on social topics as well as the therapeutic effects of making.
Kate Grimes is a site-specific artist whose work is based on hidden narratives surrounding the past, present and future through which she captures the fragility and fleetingness of everyday lives.
