‘NEST’

An interesting experience at Woburn Abbey. A beautiful space in which to exhibit and experiment with work in a different setting…

We had originally thought that we would be able to make site specific work that reflected the Abbey’s history and place in contemporary society. Suzanne and i were very excited at looking at the objects and furnishings in the main house …perhaps taking the paintings on the wall as a starting point for me re transcription and the hidden nooks and crannies for Suzanne’s projections. The interior space i thought would be amazing to photograph especially in terms of light and dimensions a la Hammershoi! however it was not to be…thwarted by rules and regulations of the house owners and issues of ‘copyright’. I’m sure there must be a way around tho, so if there are any ideas out there please do tell.
