November 2016

Grasslands was an outdoor weekend residency run by Dan Auluk with artist’s Patrick Goodall & Vicky Roden and myself. For me it was a great opportunity to free my practice, spend time with fellow artists and allow my performance time to breath.

The other artists and remnants of previous residencies about me transformed the place from a simple piece of scrub-
land to secret retreat far from the madding crowd. It was a joy to take a break and pop my head over a bush and see Patrick sifting through his excavation.

Grasslands offered me a freeing environment where I could simply exist with the work unhindered by the constraints of audience. It meant I could take risks and make mistakes, altering as I went so that the work evolved at a more natural pace.
