The unfinished research project I had begun during my ArtLab Fellowship at UCLan was waiting for my return. A first edition of one of the solar plate etching prints had been completed, but remains flattened and trapped in the press. The second film I had shot and developed last year was also sealed, the footage unseen until I was able to project it for the first time in my temporary dark space, the shed, during the Coronavirus lockdown. The texts I had written - Mother's Breath and Body and Witness - were performed during a first collaborative site visit in August last year, more of which will emerge from this research, but extracts from them seem to have surfaced while I contemplate the film stills.
Seeking out sites of heterotopia in the common landscape; at once familiar but set aside or transitory, disturbing what surrounds them. Re-imagined through analogue photography, sound, projection and printmaking.
