Craig Coulthard: Yes, No, Maybe


Yes, No, Maybe was a project which took place across three days and required the participation of local residents. Coulthard constructed a handmade wooden hut which he inhabited and invited the people of Loughborough to share their political views and discuss their desires. The artist then used these opinions as the basis for a collection of posters, which he used to adorn the cabin, prior to it being a centrepiece in a civic parade. The festooned hut was pulled along by the artist and also involved local residents, a band, handmade flags and banners, decorative costumes and floral displays.

Characteristically imbued with facts and historical connections the project paid homage to the politically charged Paris riots of 1968. The banners proclaimed issues that are relevant to the locality, bearing messages such as 'Liberty and Equality', 'Labour, the source of all Wealth' and 'Murder demands Justice', alongside powerful images depicting confrontations.

Craig Coulthard’s practice incorporates an array of different media including painting, textiles, video, ceramics and printed matter. His work manipulates existing recognisable formats including religious and political banners, fanzines, cross-stitch embroidery to explore social and cultural phenomena as well as real and imagined history
