Origins I have a 28-year history with the Pennine Way, the UKs oldest and toughest National Trail. In the summer of 1990 my dad and I walked the last sixty miles of it, over four days, from Hadrian’s Wall to […]
In Brief: news briefing featuring national and international stories including: Rio museum destroyed by fire opens temporary exhibitions’ space, Talbot Rice in Edinburgh announces artists to take part in its inaugural Residents Programme, plus Mayor of London Sadiq Khan launches major public art project highlighting overlooked women from London’s history.
I’ve had the Suez site user induction at the Halifax transfer site which is mostly common sense with a bit of jargon thrown in for good measure. There was a test at the end! Which has inspired me to maybe […]

All 100 pillowcases are now cast and waiting to be sanded and finished later this month. However, my research has continued and uncovered some very interesting pieces of information amongst the archive. Some years ago when I first began looking […]
My studio is currently a hive of activity; a great relief after the cold weather making it difficult to work in there. One end is covered in piles of neatly, and some not so neatly, folded pillow cases. the piles […]
Yesterday I thought I was going to write about pillowcases but somehow that didn’t happen and I ended up writing about how I came to the point at which I decided the direction my work was going to take. So […]
Now the weather has warmed up I seem to be working on numerous projects at the same time trying to catch up. There also seems to be a surge in activity in general following the Easter break. This is all […]
Documentation of an artist in residency program at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea, from the 11th of April to the 20th of June 2018.
This post is shared from my other blog over on WordPress but is relevant here too. I have only written 4 blog posts on here in the past year. it seems a poor effort but in my defence […]
To date there are 3 things which to me have struck a chord during my residency: The gossamer thin flags that are displayed in the Buff’s Chapel The images from Dane John VAD Hospital and the fracturing of identity […]
I haven’t written any blog posts for a while. Not just on here but also on my main blog. When I started this residency I wasn’t sure where it would lead me, but that is what is the exciting thing […]
After an exciting 2017, work completed during the Leverhulme residency was presented to the public at Ouseburn Open studios, stimulating interest and discussion around the theme of light and well-being. Work was exhibited at 36 Lime Street and this provided […]
Hospice patients find nights difficult, often experiencing hours of sleep-lessness. Family members, too, spend time through the night with their loved ones and this time can seem very long and very isolating. As part of my Leverhulme Residency at Durham […]
Last week I managed to complete the book ‘I am not Jasper Phillimore’ in time for Canterbury Cathedral Open Day where it was shown for the first time. The finished book is much smaller in scale than my original […]
I have been in my studio beginning to experiment with ideas that have begun to form in response to my initial research in the archives. Since I began working with archives the on constant experience is that the archives can […]
I have been trying out a different approach to researching in the archives. Rather than spending my time reading and studying at the Cathedral I have been photographing the items and then reading and studying them at home and in […]
Following on from my visit to the archives last week I have been spending time in my studio looking through the Admissions and Discharge Book for Dane John VAD Hospital. The book records 101 wounded men from 1916 -1918 and […]
Very few hospital records exist from WW1 and so I was rather excited to discover that the Canterbury Cathedral archives hold the Dane John VAD Hospital Admissions and Discharge Book. This rather lovely book, printed and probably bound by Burrup, […]
Over the last two visits to the Archives I have been accessing several files that relate to the Dane John V A D Hospital. The hospital at Dane John House (now known as Chantry Hall) was used as a Voluntary […]
Frustratingly my perspex box frames arrived a day late meaning I didn’t have everything framed in time for the planned first day of hanging the show in the barn. So after lunch in the shade of a tree Louisa and I […]
Observations and reflections on 4 weeks as artist in residence at the Château de Sacy.
Earlier this year the Leverhulme Trust decided to close its successful Artist in Residence Grant Scheme which has seen artists including Turner Prize winner Elizabeth Price and the Scottish artist Alec Finlay working alongside scientists and academics across the UK. Chris Fremantle talks to those lamenting its closure and calls for its return.
So, I think my video is done … I’ll be testing the projection next week on site and the good news is that the potting shed has been cleared out and is ready to function as a space for the […]
