During my residency at Bank Street Arts I will be exploring drawing as a spatial, multi dimensional realm which takes in the traditional formal elements of drawing, line, tone, texture etc. and merges these aspects with conditions such as intimacy, responsiveness, collectivity and humour.
One aim of the residency is to connect Bank Street Arts with artists and arts events in Leeds so watch out for interesting guests.
I work with drawing, installation, sound, performance and artist’s books. Some of my work is event based (and ephemeral as a result) while other work takes the form of drawings, books and texts which act as documents, records and scores. Repetitive acts and responsiveness play a part in my work.
The residency will possibly culminate in a performance or sound work and I will be making occasional works throughout, in dialogue with the other programmes and residencies that are taking place at Bank Street during my time here.
