N A R R A T I O N S & F A B R I C A T I O N S


    I have been busy conceiving and fabricating new work, and most recently familiarising myself with the intricacies of hydroponics. I have also been asked to participate in two forthcoming exhibitions…

    I first visited White Moose at the start of a long weekend in Devon some time ago, and the gallery has now invited me to show several of pieces of my work in an exhibition that explores our perception of memory and time.

    During my previous visit I stayed in a friend's eighteenth century house at the bottom of a deep ferny valley just minutes from the sea. That trip inspired The Last Inhabitants, a series of detailed lichen embroideries that saw Nature contort tiny garments that had once housed babies. I eagerly anticipate what may influence me when I return to North Devon for the show.

    Several people forwarded my Shorn Out of Wedlock postcard to Professor Emma Tarlo at Goldsmith's University. Enticed to my studio, we talked all things hair for almost seven hours. Emma has now curated an intriguing journey into the world of hair. From intimate personal stories to global tales about the circulation for hair around the world – as only an anthropologist could.

    I was bestowed with a huge box of human hair early in my residency at Cockpit Arts, and some of it will feature in pieces in both exhibitions. I have used it profusely as anyone who has visited during Open Studios will testify, though still cannot fathom why there is barely a dent in its contents.
