MA Show 2018
Showcase of Post Grad Art & Design Students, Holden Gallery, Manchester School of Art, Sept – Oct 2018, as part of a body of research visualising memory and collective narratives. Textiles are the everyday, triggering memory and comfort.
I was looking to find a way that I could successfully visualize and present work that portrayed the very essence of the passing of time, memory and experiences. I believe that by following just one course of action as an artist I would be missing out on other opportunities, that would present themselves in the course of ‘playing’ with materiality.
This film is about waiting. Showing a perpetual state of waiting and remembering. The cigarette shows a state of reverie. Among her chaos comes clarity. In film portraiture it is often not action and things happening but taking a closer look at the subject. An opportunity to view how their whole life can be acknowledged in one swoop.
