Some of my soft sculptures are on tour again! I'm part of the Bodies group residency, 12 artists from Synecdoche Art Community doing a month's residency throughout September in an empty shop, The Unit, in The Arcade in Broadmead, Bristol. I haven’t done anything like this before, so I’m excited to see what will happen.
We’ve already started and we’ve set up a studio/testing/research space to explore ideas based around the body. There will be new work being made, as well as old work being displayed. I've already started work on an installation of the Baker family’s discarded clothes. I'm also giving them away! You will possibly recognise a couple of my soft sculptures on show, and I’m planning to make more while I’m there.
The space will change over the month as the work develops and as the group hosts events, collaborations, workshops and seminars. Different combinations of artists will be in residence each day; no two days will be the same.
Come and see what we get up to!

We will be open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10-4pm & Sundays 11-5pm. We will be open at other times too. If our door is open then do come in. Sadly, I can't be there all the time, but I will be there every Thursday and Friday from 10-4pm. If you can’t get down there on those days, do get in touch and hopefully we can arrange another time to meet up.
We're also having a BODY PART-y on Sunday 25th September from 2-5pm to which you’re cordially invited.
Here’s a link to the Facebook event:
