Lustre (solo)

Sept 2015 — Sept 2016
Kendal Museum, Cumbria

Commissioned by Legion TV, London and Kendal Museum, Cumbria. Supported by Arts Council England.

‘Lustre’ is a twelve month exhibition at Kendal Museum, Cumbria. As the Museum embarks on a new phase digitising its collections, ‘Lustre’ aims to examine questions about the implications and possibilities that arise when sharing digital collections.

‘Lustre’ consists of a digital video and printed guide displayed alongside the permanent museum collections and focuses on two specific areas – Geology and Archaeology. The works result from a period of residency in Kendal Museum, in which the artist had the opportunity to research inside the Museum stores and archives.

The resulting video ‘A Weird Aperture - and Weird Echoes of Water’ can be viewed here: Vimeo (12 mins)
