the secrets we…. Virtual Exhibition Tour

Earlier this year my work  ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves…’was installed  in Lord Byron’s Dressing Room at his ancestral home, Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire. The work was part of the ‘Lace Unveiled’ exhibition 10 March – 22 April 2018. This is the first time ‘the secrets we keep from ourselves….’ was installed solely by The Nottingham Museums Team since the work was acquisition into Nottingham’s Textile Art Collection in 2016.

Offerings Exhibition at R Space Gallery. Lisburn NI is now open!

The Exhibition install went well, took 8 days working on site. The opening reception took place on Saturday 24th February and I ran a ‘Reconsidering Clothes’ workshop on Wednesday 28th February. I have very much enjoyed the process of working with the gallery space. ‘Bit of Skirt’ and ‘waisted: wasted’ were finally completed in the gallery. Photos below are of installing the work, including the much needed scaffolding tower which, at times, seemed to became part of the work. Offerings continues until Friday 23rd March 2018.

Installation planning….

In three weeks’ time I will be working on-site on my installation for Offerings for R-Space Gallery, Lisburn. Have been thinking through and rehearsing how to install, but I suspect this will all change on location, due to light, environment and emotional state ! I am looking forward to working with the space. http://www.rspacelisburn.com/offerings/

 

 

Final work in situ. Shed Space Gallery Residency. Old Fire Station Gallery, Oxford 2016

A few photos of the final work in situ…Working live in a gallery is always full of surprises. I had some lovely unexpected conversations with gallery visitors during my two day shed space residency. These exchanges and visitors re-actions to an artist working in the gallery all at some level inform the work made in situ. Thank you to those of you who visited.
