I was commissioned to make ‘a piece’ in response to Anita’s work, and particularly in response to a day we spent together at the Undercliff. It was a hot, dry day in this most claustrophobic of places, and overall I had a very curious response to the day. I struggled coming up with a response and ended up with the three pieces that I’ve just explored here. This piece is, finally, about the Undercliff, and mostly comprises a conversation I had with Anita along the walk. It’s got some very interesting discussion about making art in response to place, and about making ‘long’ pieces that explore something over a long period of time.
I also made a longer piece based on the walk for radio broadcast on my radio show.
As promised in an earlier post, once I’ve had a chance to document the finished boxes, which are now on exhibition, I will post pictures here.
