Creators: Kelham, J
Abstract: Artist Jonathan Kelham playfully tackled the burning question of why the parish of St Anne’s in Bristol, has no football team. Welcome to the rise of the fictional football team Super Duper St Anne’s F.C. The work is a culmination of a year’s research into amateur league football and its culture, all overseen by Kelham as player-manager-grounds person-physio. Through the language of fan-centred, DIY aesthetics, humour and playfulness, the project ran an open dialogue with residents about their wants and needs for a team and whether this could be a reality in the future. Throughout his time in the project space, the artist hosted wooden-rattle making workshops, foosball tournaments, talks, and even a local footy game for visitors to get involved in. Turning St Anne’s House into the home of football, the project space was used as the headquarters, and included merchandise, research based artwork, and flags to mark the space.
