‘Blur’ is a project that was created during in 2021, during the Coronavirus pandemic, in Birmingham. Inspired by the BriVsh art history television programme, ‘Fake or Fortune’, ‘Blur’ is a ficVonal TV show, which analyses painVngs and artworks from art history that have been created through cultural appropriaVon. Deciding whether the cultural appropriaVon is posiVve and fair, if the artworks demonstrate posiVve appropriaVon then these artworks are blurred; the ‘blur’ is a symbol for blurring the boundaries between different cultures, idenVVes, and creaVve ideas.
