The collaboration Ayling and Conroy ran from 2005 - 2010.

Bruce Asbestos (formerly Ayling) now creates artwork at and curates

Hannah Conroy curates and is collaborating on the following projects

Bruce Guy Ayling (b 1982) and Hannah Conroy (b 1981)

Ayling and Conroy are interested in making artwork that entertains, and involves various forms of audience engagement. Their practice has grown out of an interest in the context in which artwork is created and received, and the audience’s participation with the work, wherever it exists; both at the point of experiencing the work in the gallery or in its wider dissemination through discussion, documentation and other types of media.

Recent exhibitions include; If Not Now Then When, Spike Island, Bristol, UK (2008) Curio Island 6, Croatian Association of Artists, Zagreb, Croatia (2008) Ayling & Conroy, Gallery Casa Matei, Cluj - Napoca, Romania (2007). Ayling & Conroy, City Gallery, Leicester (2007) Stuff Happens, Angel Row Gallery, Nottingham UK, (2007) Double Acts, Phoenix Gallery, Brighton UK (2007) Eyesore Sundae, Spectacle Gallery, Birmingham, UK, (2006) When Men and Mountains Meet, Gallery 01, Zagreb, Croatia (2006)

They live and work in Birmingham, and Nottingham, UK.
Previously the pair curated the My House Gallery / Projects programme from 2005 - 2007
