Dudmaston Hall Residency
January – November 2013
Responding to the Modern art collection held on site, I will be researching notions of ‘blankness’ in relation to a diverse selection of starting points such as, monochromatic painting, abstraction of information and the mind’s proclivity to block out areas of thinking that are perceived as beyond it’s understanding. The resulting drawings and writings will be published in newspaper format later this year.
The property is open to the general public from 17 March until the end of Autumn and you can visit me every Monday and the last Sunday of each month as I set up studio in the former kitchen.

Eastside Projects are selling artists bread and fortune cookies from our stall in Yangjiang Group’s large scale ‘Shu Fa at Cricket Pavilion’ structure, co-commissioned by Eastside Projects and Grizedale Arts earlier this year, and now a major part of Frieze Projects.
Eastside Projects is working in Birmingham with Loaf Social Enterprise Ltd in Stirchley to make artists bread available at the gallery each week. We have invited artists to design stenciled texts and images, such as Dora Garcia’s ‘Steal This’ 2012, which are then cooked onto the sourdough loaves. We are being useful by functioning as the central Birmingham distribution point for Loaf’s outstanding bread. For Frieze, Loaf recommended Brick House Bakery in East Dulwich to work with us. Each day Brick House will cook fresh artists’ bread for our stall.

Memory of a Hope
Ceri Hand Gallery, Liverpool
5 August – 3 September 2011
“Ideology collapses and vanishes, utopianism atrophies, but something great is left behind: the memory of a hope”, Henri Lefebvre.
Devised with gallery artist Matthew Houlding, this summer exhibition draws on a key text by Henri Lefebvre and the autobiographical writing of JG Ballard, reflecting spaces caught between construction, destruction and nostalgia.
Each gallery artist was invited to select two artists in response to Houlding’s concept. The resulting exhibition includes 36 artists and over 100 art works, including film, photography, painting, sculpture, text and audio work – much of it seen for the first time in the UK.
Andrew Graves, Angus Braithwaite, Anthony Shapland, Antoine L’Heureux, Bedwyr Williams, Clare Kenny, Dan Ford, Doug Jones, Eleanor Moreton, Elizabeth Rowe, Geraint Evans, Grant Foster, Henny Acloque, James Ireland, Jen Liu, Joseph Welden, Juneau Projects, Kim Rugg, Louise Bristow, Mary Griffiths, Matthew Houlding, Mel Brimfield, Mernet Larsen, Nevan Lahart, Nick Crowe & Ian Rawlinson, Peter Harris, Rebecca Lennon, Riccardo Baruzzi, Rita Sobral Campos, Samantha Donnelly, Simon Faithfull, S Mark Gubb, Stuart Edmundson, Tamy Ben-Tor, Tessa Power, Vicky Wright
