“A Haecceity has neither beginning nor end, origin nor destination; it is always in the middle. ” Alan, Taylor, Haecceity (he ke’ti) 1996- The University of Texas at Arlington, http:///www.uta.edu/english/apt/d&g/haeccity,html A week into my residency and the installation of […]
As ice carved its way through Cheshire thousands of years ago, wetland bowls were left behind creating a unique ecosystem unlike any other. A century ago, sphagnum was used as an emergency field dressing known simply as a soldier’s saviour, […]
Haecceity is a commissioned residency as part of the 2017 Warrington Contemporary Arts Festival. Over the coming months Tracy Hill will explore wetland locations around Warrington. Specifically Hill will be examining our human relationship with these post industrial spaces.
When I began this residency, I promised myself I would not overthink. I would not attempt to resolve conceptual concerns. I would remain open to possibility in everything I did. And I would only do what I wanted to do, […]
What’s special for me about working in this space in this residency? What’s to stop me clearing out my usual studio space of all old stuff, and committing to a month of new exploration there instead? Leaving aside the obvious absurdity […]
Over a week in, and the vast space has been shape-shifting and swallowing all and any work I make. My residency goals have been revised three times already, because I’m frankly so overwhelmed by the open-ended possibilities of this month […]
Jenny Steele’s research project ‘Miami Moderne’ is supported by an Artists International Development Grant from Arts Council England and The British Council. She will be researching into 1930s-1940s modernist seafront architecture within Miami Beach.
Reflecting on the beginning of my public programme as Artist in Residence at Tower Bridge, this entry shares the experience of leading a participatory art walk along the Thames…
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 […]
This was the second of six blogs from my ‘Armchair Artist Residency’ at The Beaney House of Knowledge and Art, Canterbury. The Beaney House of Knowledge and Art: The Front Room ‘Armchair Artist Residency’ blog. Blog number two, October […]
This is our final post about our residency at the beautiful Chateau de Sacy in France, which culminated with an exhibition at the Chateau for the month of September. Back at the beginning of September, we installed the films in the barn […]
Pippa Koszerek talks to artist Beth Collar about how a 2014 residency at Glasgow Women’s Library has influenced the sculptures that she is currently showing in the Tall Tales national touring exhibition.
Our last day. Sad face. Today we had a crack at the edits, looking through all the footage and trying to work out our ins and outs, quite literally. By mid afternoon, we had gotten tired of looking at hours […]
There is one piece of footage that we are really struggling to find audio to match. So we left the dead cat out in the front garden for most of the morning to see what we could capture. Hermine spotted […]
Hermine had a bit of a mental breakdown in the run up to the presentation this afternoon. The stress of the big occasion was getting to her. We managed to get the place ready for 3.30pm and then sat patiently […]
Firstly apologies for no blog yesterday. We basically spent all day sweeping up the barn (think mammoth spider webs and tonnes of pigeon shit). There has been a woofers revolt. They couldn’t handle Hermine any more and have done a […]
Having looked at some of our footage, we decided we needed to reshoot a bit. We have made a film of the intersection of some motorways but the sky looks a bit boring, we fancied some dark clouds in it. […]
In preparation for our bee visit today, we looked up the dos and don’ts of apiary life. Don’t be overly perfumed. Or be smelly. Bit of dilemma there. Don’t wear black socks, as bees sting dark things. Be calm at […]
OK so today’s post is going to be a bit more on the gentle side compared to our Parisian adventures up to now, for today we stayed in Sacy. We invited Hermine to do a bit of yoga with us. […]
Sorry for the delayed blog post – the internet was down when we got in last night. Either that or Hermine had switched it off as she could “sense a thunderstorm brewing.” We did have a few interesting conversations with […]
Today we returned to Paris to find the cloud-making chimneys we had spotted yesterday. We parked up where we could, but unfortunately there were 5 motorways between us and said chimneys. How could we get to them? We ended up […]
