Recent engagement projects, working with partner organisations and the public, sharing my work and process.
National Trust at Beningbrough Hall
The aim of this residency was to make work in response to the Hall's architecture, sharing my process with visitors, to provide another way of experiencing the space.
During lockdown, focus of research, working with ideas that buildings reveal themselves to us through light and shadow, when they breathe, was transferred to the home and developed into the 'Drawing Breath' series (see WORKS).
York Art Gallery
Inspired by York Art Gallery's Main Gallery, this body of work evolved from responding to the abstract shapes cast by passages of light tracing over features in the space. The drawings, 'Resonances Retold', were installed to interact with each other when activated by natural light in the space.
This work was carried out alongside the project DRAW! that aimed to encourage gallery visitors to engage with drawing, with nearly 1300 drawings being produced by the public over the project.
National Trust at Goddards
This project focused on researching the wallpapers at Goddards, the 1927 family home of Noel Terry, and explored the conversation that emerged between the house and garden.
The exhibition, Goddards Reimagined, comprised the video artwork, 'Always Coming Back To The House' (from Lewis Carroll's, 'Through the Looking Glass'), together with selected supporting artwork.
