Artist outcomes from the 2016 Habitation Artist Residency Programme were unveiled on 28th June with an exhibition of artworks and a discussion by the artists in residence, Lise Autogena, Joshua Portway and Ruth Ewan, and an introduction to the ArtScapers Education Programme.
The event featured new works developed through the residency as well as a free discussion between the artists and Dr Marquard Smith, academic, curator and Editor-in –Chief of the Journal of Visual Culture.
Ruth Ewan's residency outcome work 'Another Time' is a meadow and test-bed which, over three years, will transform a disused field next to Gravel Hill Farm workers' cottages into a non- mechanical clock. The plants featured in the meadow have been carefully selected for their predictable flower opening and closing times – as first hypothesised by Carl Linnaeus his book 'Philosophia Botanica', 1751. The project is accompanied by a pamphlet detailing the research and ideas behind the project. Download a free copy of Ruth Ewan's 'Another Time' pamphlet.
