Loose Joints Studio

Loose Joints Publishing

British artist Jet Swan’s first monograph collects together the last three years of the artist's engagement with members of the public through impromptu studio spaces, such as an empty shopfront inside a commercial mall in Scarborough, northeast England, and a repurposed community hall in Ramsgate, Kent, where the artist lives and works.

Loose Joints merged two series of Swan's to create this unique monograph, commissioning poet Rachael Allen to respond to the artist's atmospheric portraits, in a subtle, synthetic clothbound hardcover bookended by Allen's enigmatic texts that lent the project it's title: Material.
