Engine of Growth Voting

22 August 2016

Engine of Growth was installed for a festival weekend in Peterborough on 20-21 August. The installation invited people to vote on the fate of a sculpture in the park as a way of creating discussion around the treatment of sculptures in the collection. The weekend was very productive with nearly 400 votes cast and some fantastic, lively conversations.

Not Here

18 May 2016

Not Here opened last night at Radiant Space, Plymouth.
My work for the show is Refuge, a large nest made from found materials bound together with a continuous line of rope. The work was partially built for the opening night and I will be completing the build over the next few days, inviting visitors to bring objects to be included in the nest.

EDIT: Due to unforeseen circumstances the work will now be installed during the week of 9 May, with an opening event at midday on 14 May.

Due to difficulties in getting permission to site the work at Swansea Castle my installation has been relocated to the National Waterfront Museum. Because of the move I have had to rethink the entire piece and have spent the last few weeks redeveloping the work. See the work page for more information.
It will be installed on the week of 4 April.

Nene Park Commission

25 March 2016

In April I start the Nene Park Commission for Peterborough Presents and Nene Park Trust with assistance from Metal, Peterborough.

I have been selected along with four other artists: Lyndall Phelps, Jamie Gledhill, Store Projects and Scottee.

Together we will be seeking to ‘reinvigorate [the] substantial public sculpture collection at Thorpe Meadows by [creating] new temporary art works and interventions. These resulting new commissions will be showcased at a weekend of new festival activity surrounding the sculptures in August 2016.’
