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 […]
There has been a lot of ‘official’ stuff to get sorted before the real research can begin and I can get stuck in to the residency. Meeting the Canterbury Journey team, the Archives and Libraries team, getting my ID card, […]
Being Artist-in-Residence at Canterbury Cathedral is a great opportunity and one that I am very excited about. The opportunity to make work in response to research in their archives and to work with their archivists and conservationists will I hope […]
The Canterbury Journey is Canterbury Cathedral’s 5 year conservation project. This blog records the experience, research and work of Dawn Cole during her year long term as Artist in Residence in the Cathedral Archives for the Canterbury Jouney
https://vimeo.com/215108977 Half of my installation at the inaugural National Festival of Making last week included a documentary film. It is the result of an embedded period working both with the MGS Technical Plastics and the town of Blackburn itself…… Statement: […]
Engaging in a detailed way with industrial manufacturing means immersing oneself in a world of language, techniques and processes that are at times utterly surprising. The products produced in the factory today have ranged from a very high end car […]
I’m 48 hours into a residency that’s as focused upon manufacturing timelines and heritage-based narratives as the Fourth Industrial Revolution and competitive strategies. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and supported by arts commissioners Super Slow Way, the Art in […]

Advancing ideas around the simulacrum, and other questions concerning the copy, the original, and representation, through work produced in my artist’s residency in the printmaking room at the University of Suffolk.
Blogging: A couple of years ago I received the Reside Residency which lasted for 6 months. It gave me some idea about how I wanted to make use of blogs. I applied for the Reside Residency because one did not […]
For a three months residency, the Something Useful Project supports me at the Fine Arts department of the Veer Narmad South Gujarat University in the city of Surat, found in the North western state of Gujarat in India.
I’ve almost concluded my artist residency at Lancaster West estate. There has been a hiatus to the community project work that has consisted of making large scale drawings for a mural and a short film. The regeneration works on Grenfell […]
I feel like my mind is working like one of those films that don’t start in the beginning…or the end… or the middle really. Just snippets are put together in the hope of it all making sense. The last three weeks […]
