Border Bound – The Boat Studio

This August, I was selected for the Summer 2018 Border Bound residency with The Boat Studio. The project involves two residential journeys aboard The Boat Studio narrowboat connecting the Welsh village of Llangollen to the English town of Chester. As the first of two artists taking up the opportunity, the residency was a chance for collaboration, dialogue and ideas exchange with artists and TBS founders Ellie Young and Amber Mottram. The residency further included professional mentoring by Steffan Jones-Hughes at Oriel Davies and James Harper at Tŷ Pawb. 

The residency for me, was a chance to focus on the process of image making, working with camera-less photographic techniques, audio stories, video and installation. The works in progress produced reflected the week long journey, and our collaborative conversations and exchanges. A final textiles limited edition tea-towel work will be produced as a final gift back to the artist residency scheme but here are some images of the ‘open boat’ showcase in the mean time.
