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.

Gallery residency – Work in progress; Shed Space Exhibition 2016

Working with a knicker elastic warp stretched around the gallery architecture steel post and attached to the ‘shed space’ shed, I have been free fall weaving and un- weaving with a mix of nylon undergarments and stockings… starting with the basement foundations of the Former Lucas Underwear Factory building in George Street Oxford…

i remember

….watching ‘Blood and Black Lace’-  (Italian: Sei donne per l’assassino) a 1964 Italian Giallo film directed by Mario Bava; and after the film had finished, my boyfriend thought it would be funny to act out the killer by hiding on the landing with a black lace stocking over his head….
