The Home Studio Bubble
A micro-residency and performative piece, behind glass at Gallery 35-37. Folkestone
A week long project in which the boundaries between 'home' and 'studio' became blurred. The public could walk past and watch the making/thinking/living process. With no real interaction possible, the 'fairy tale weaving in the tower' idea referred back to the virtual screens and language bubbles that have become our worlds during the pandemic.
Mixed media and domestic objects.
Little Word Weaving
V&A Museum of Childhood
A text based activity to co-incide with Micheal Morpugo: A Lifetime in Stories, visitors to the exhibition could select words from Morpurgo;s novels and help 'embroider' them onto a large wall piece to create a colourful landscape of words. Those with time could also make their own small work to takeaway. Amazing what we could make in a few hours! More to follow...
