'Wellow' project (2019-2020)
I'm currently working on my next project, entitled ‘Wellow’. My Grandfather attended his local baptist chapel on the Isle of Wight every Sunday after his Mother died but it’s been closed since September 2017 and is currently in disrepair and awaiting its fate from a revised planning application. My Mother still has her plot saved next to her parent's but the future of the site is still uncertain.
I aim to consider this through my mother’s own mortality as she waits for an imminent hip operation as well as my growing awareness of the quickening pace of time as I get older. The project will comprise of both photographs and experimental video, drawing upon material objects, the family album, my Mother's recorded memories and my own vocal reflections to build a fragmented narrative that dwells on place, ancestry, ritual and religion.
