'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 now closed and a recent planning application to build three houses on site and partially onto the graveyard has thankfully been rejected. My Mother still has her plot saved next to her parent's but the future of the site is still uncertain.
I aim to examine this through my mother’s own mortality as she waits for a hip operation as well as 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.
