The Shipping Forecast

During the last  few years I have been working developing new projects which have evolved from my research for the commissioned exhibition Gypsy Maker 4:Places, Spaces, Traces, for the Romani Cultural and Arts Company. This focus on ideas first discussed with my mentor  looks at the issues surrounding migration and movement of people in the search for a safe place to live and work.

This new work has led to an invitation for me to create an installation for exhibition at the beautiful Sint-Anna-ten-Drieën church in Antwerp in 2022 through the organisation vzw ANNA3. A selection of the pieces, The Shipping Forecast was recently installed in the amazing creative space of a converted lightvessel LV21, in Gravesend, Kent, as well as at R Space in Lisburn, Northern Ireland.

This beautiful video of the work in situ on the ship filmed by Gary Weston provides a great sense of atmosphere.

A big thank you to my project partners who have  curated and installed the work whilst I am unable to travel.
