Artist in Residence / Lycée Jules Guesde, Montpellier
In November 2021 I was invited to do a residence at Lycée Jules Guesde in Montpellier. I was, at the time, in mid flow and up against a deadline for a sizeable commission ‘Album La Paillade’ for the Centre îles aux Familles, in La Paillade. This brief residence, enabled me to lay all the work out on the floor of a classroom and complete it, whilst showing students and their teachers the work in progress. I also exhibited a few pieces from the past to give the students an overview of my practice. As always a great experience meeting and discussing ‘time’and ‘memory’ and how we navigate with and around these concepts today with roughly 500 or so bright and lively students. Thanks Rebecca!
