Artist-Teacher group installation, Birmingham City University (July 2012)
A group installation made in collaboration with Amy Denton, Jacqui Newey and Janine Tambo.
This temporary installation created the impression of a rich archaeological dig, now abandoned and eventually overgrown. The clay vessels collect rainwater as a reminder of the original purpose of the moat, their vibrant colours and shapes recalling the prosperous Abbey of Bec and Manorial Court that operated on the site from 14th century up until the early 20th century. Our project title plays with the idea that members of the local community will be creating vessels from clay and these will be incorporated as creative ‘tithes’ for our own trespassing, as artists, on the land. In collaboration with Emily Orley and curated by Constantine Gras.
