Leeds Weirdo Club is the shared self storage unit of the artists Doug Bowen, Matthew Crawley, Harry Meadley and David Steans. Leeds Weirdo Club is also Leeds Weirdo Club.
Whilst the four of us have individual practices, the studio engenders collaborations amongst us, and is itself a collaborative endeavour. Leeds Weirdo Club is not an artists group but an environment; not a 'club' in the formal sense of the word but an anomalous art institution. Founded in 2012 by Matthew Crawley, Harry Meadley and David Steans, Leeds Weirdo Club initially operated out of a studio at Patrick Studios, East Street Arts, Leeds. In 2014 we moved to a studio at Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun, Leeds, where the project was located for a year. In 2015 Doug Bowen joined Leeds Weirdo Club.
