INK was an eclectic collection of 120 museum artefacts, artworks, texts, films and other items all relating to the history and substance of ink. It drew extensively from the remarkable teaching collections, personal archives and the work of staff at University College London (UCL), and contemporary artworks sat alongside priceless museum artefacts and everyday objects.
Every day a ‘live respondent’ inhabited the space and created an exhibit to add to the collection. These included political cartoonists Nicola Jennings and Martin Rowson, renowned tattooist Lal Hardy, artist and poet Ansuman Biswas, and calligrapher Paul Antonio.
