page in new Devon/Cornwall artists publication

I have had a piece of work selected for a new publication of work by artists in Devon and Cornwall. ‘dublin emblem 7’ was chosen for Front Page Back Page Centrefold, a curated magazine produced by Flock South West in cooperation with CAMP as a fringe event for the British Art Show 9 in Plymouth.

My piece combines a collage produced while staying in Dublin in 2021 with text exploring some ideas around emblemata, meaning, narrative and assemblage.

The magazine is available in all BAS9 venues, or online from https://www.flocksouthwest.org/shop.

MarjonXRame at Maker Heights

Really enjoyed being part of the MarjonXRame Summer School working with a great bunch of people over three days of moving, sensing, writing, feeling, listening, talking. It was great to finally make it to Maker Heights, on a wonderful campsite, to swim and eat well and get energised around making and performing. Thanks to Dr Natalie Raven for holding and shaping it.

MarjonXRame Summer School

From July 28th to 30th I will be participating in a Summer School at Rame Head in Cornwall organised by Dr Natalie Raven of Marjons University. Along with seven other artists and performers I will spend two and a half days in workshops, discussion, eating and being together in the coastal landscape at Maker Heights and the Rame peninsula. The theme is ‘innovative approaches to actor training in nature’ and we will present a sharing of work in progress or findings or thoughts on Saturday 30th July between 1300 and 1500hrs.

ma magazine of students’ writing

I have edited a digital magazine that assembles a selection of writing by students on the MA Contemporary Arts Practice and MA Fine Art at University of Plymouth. The texts were made in response to prompts and discussion in a series of seminars over the past year. Bringing these texts together in a magazine format puts them into conversation with each other. The publication offers a sense of the importance of writing on these MA courses, and the diversity of writing around and within contemporary art practice. You can read the publication here.
