SITE RESPONSIVE MULTI-DISCIPLINARY FINE ARTIST.

Using walking and drawing as research methodology and performance/live art; to explore and respond to a particular environment, and as a base for both collaborative and individual work.

Walking and making sited and studio based work to investigate place, memory and identity, I'm interested in working across and beween disciplines and media to create new dialogues about, and encounters with, place and its connection with personal and community experience and narrative.


CASHMORE & JOHNSON and OVER HERE:

One half of Cashmore & Johnson - established as a project lead, collaborative practice exploring a shared interest in psychogeography, relational aesthetics and site specific inquiry; identifying sites of sociopolitical interest to create interventions and events informed by ideas of hospitality and home. 
Cashmore & Johnson is also a part of ‘Over Here’  - a newly established community based art collective that creates live events fostering diverse and participatory dialogues in communal spaces.
 

CURRENT PROJECTS

THE CANARY GIRLS: Response to the history of the women who worked at Royal Ordnance Munitions Factory in Rotherwas, Hereford  (Cashmore & Johnson).

NIGHT WALKS: ongoing – a series of digitally documented (filmed) solitary walks at night to explore the gendered art practice of walking as “laying claim to space without having it” (Lajer-Burcharth, E, “Duchess of Nothing: Video Space and the Woman Artist” in Armstrong C and de Zegher C, ed., Women Artists in the Millenium, (MIT 2006).).  

RESEARCH:
Facilitating ongoing walk/draw events with female members of the Polish community in Hereford to explore notions of home and (new) homemaking.

Full Moon Walks.  Ongoing collaboration with Natalie Ramus to create a series of 9 Full Moon Walks (some of which will be participatory) at The Sidney Nolan Trust
