1st November 2016 - 31st January 2017In common with all new parents, the birth of my first child in March 2015 changed many things in my life. My identity and perception of time became blurred and fractured by the overwhelming and relentless needs of care and domesticity. As I surface from this I begin to see ironically that motherhood offers me time and a framework to work within.
I will undergo this 3 month self-imposed artist residency in order to fully experience and explore the fragmented focus, nap-length studio time, limited movement and resources and general upheaval that parenthood brings and allow it to shape the direction of my work, rather than try to work “despite” it.
I do this publicly because I struggle with procrastination, commitment and accountability.
We shall see.
