Collection 4 is a collection of artworks that are grouped together by the simple criteria that they are predominately blue in colour (or solely contain the colour blue) and were already physically existent when the artists were invited to participate. The equivalence in colour allows for an opportunity to view these individual artworks collectively. This exhibition is the fourth in a series of projects that involve the collection of blue objects according to specific contexts. So far, this has included the collection of blue rubbish, presented as an installation at Factory 49 in February, 2013, an ongoing photographic series of blue cars, and a collaboration with another artist Melanie E. Khava and her daughter Ren which involves reviewing all their possessions and documenting those that are blue.
Artists whose work is included in Collection 4 include: John Adair, Matthew Allen, Daniel Argyle, Clementine Barnes, Majella Beck, Louise Blyton, Christopher Dean, Rhonda Dee, Richard Dunn, Nicole Ellis, Beata Geyer, Alexandra Kennedy, Melanie E. Khava, Suzie Idiens, Kyle Jenkins, Ben Lang, Lindy Lee, Stephen Little, Kate Mackay, Francesca Mataraga, Sarah Newell, Lena Obergfell, Alex Pye, Samuel Quinteros, Paul Raguenes, Margaret Roberts, Marlene Sarroff, Liz Shreeve, Masato Takasaka, Alicia Poppett and Justin Trendall.
