Groundwork: Laying Roots in MK

I am one quarter of the arts research collective Tracing the Pathway, who explore the relationships between memory, body, site and encounter, developing a fluid, itinerant and communal approach to art. In May we began Groundwork, a performance and research […]

Exhibition open

All over! Well not really; the exhibition has just opened, I’ll be back in ten days to do some artist workshops for children and there’s still the de install to think about, not to mention the floor cleaning which still […]

Fifth day in Århus

I was up at 4.50 this morning to get a train to Århus that would get me in for 10am. I returned to the hut at 10pm! My day at home was worth the five hour journey though. We kept […]

Third and fourth days in Århus.

A crazy couple of days. Up at 6, leaving my hut at 7 and walking through the woods to the site. That and the breakfast call home helped me overcome the weariness, stiffness and footsore-ness to face the day ahead. […]

Second day in Århus

I feel immeasurably better than I did this time last night; even though today as usual went slower than hoped, still partly due to the rain. But this evening unlike last night is fine and mild, I’ve just walked back […]

First day in Århus

Probably the hardest day of the entire project so far, and yet one in which I must remember a lot did get done.  Hard for various reasons: it was physically long – I left the cabin at 7.15am and got […]

Tomorrow it begins

Lying in bed in this cosy little wooden hut, I feel a bit like an explorer updating my blog. Being Scandinavian summer it is still quite light outside at 10pm and it is perfectly peaceful in this campsite in the […]

On the bus

I’m sitting on the bus waiting to leave Valby Station for Århus.  After feeling apprehension bordering on an impulse not to go, I have started feeling the tiniest seed of anticipation, even excitement. It was triggered by the thought that […]

Gone

She’s gone…to Aarhus.   The very nice freight man turned up early, which was great.  He had an enormous truck, he had intended to collect another piece in Copenhagen but couldn’t actually get into the place so had plenty of […]

Return to Roskilde

The day before the sculpture is freighted to Aarhus.  I borrowed Charlotte’s car again and went over to Roskilde for the first time since finishing work last Tuesday.   I knew that Lars and Mikkel were planning to prep the […]

Day 12: Ready to roll!!

It’s ready! And I am so glad.  Today I finished the last coat of undercoat then prepared and did 3 layers of top coat on the remaining four panels.  I’m not totally satisfied: the joints between plates of plywood are […]

Day 11: Top coat

A nasty moment to begin with today. I was a bit nervous about starting the top coat. After all, minor blemishes in the undercoat can somehow be disguised, but the top coat has to be perfect. I mixed up the […]

Day 10: Finishing the undercoat

I was so blasted after Saturday that I couldn’t even write a blog post on my way home.  It wasn’t hugely eventful, but I did (almost..just one coat on one side of one panel left to go) finish undercoating.   […]

Day 10: Breaking the back of it

Felt very tired today, back in the studio twelve hours after I left it, and that’s including nearly 3 hours travelling..I didn’t even attempt to plan knowing Mikkel and Lars were also going to be working there.  It gave me […]

Day 9: Kristi himmelfart dag

Sitting slightly guiltily enjoying the sunshine: after days of unsettled weather today is glorious. Spent the morning preparing more surfaces ie sanding and filling! After yesterday’s experience I am determined to give the filler longer to dry. And I have […]

Day 8: Rising panic

Had to suppress a feeling of rising panic today as I tried to rescue another layer of undercoat which was dribbling and threatening to ruin the finish.  Limited time is making me rush things and that’s the consequence.  Not enough […]
