Residency

 

In 2008 Lin Holland and I undertook a joint artists' residency in the two cathedrals of Liverpool.

During the year we made six site-specific works, which included multi-media installations, moving image projections, a major inter-generational community-based project, and a live performance piece. The work responded to the architectural settings as well as to the religious functions of the cathedrals and raised secular/spiritual debates, including ‘fact/faith’ and ‘permanence/transformation’.

In 2009 Holland and I were nominated for the Northern Art Prize for this body of work.

In 2010 we were commissioned by Liverpool Cathedral to make a further installation for the Chapter House to be shown as part of its Liverpool Biennial programme.

The artist Chris Lethbridge was commissioned to write a text in response to the artworks produced on the residency. A recorded reading of the text by the Liverpool writer and poet Peter Halligan can be heard by clicking on the bar below.
