News From Home 2019 - Portfolio of Works

Saturday, January 18, 2020

As we enter the new year, it is a good chance to summarise 2019. Last year in my 'News From Home' project I worked in 6 different locations, held multiple artist talks, open studios and exhibitions. All of the work from throughout 2019 can now be seen in a summary portfolio. We plan to continue News From Home in 2020, but for now, have a look at what was achieved last year.

POSTCARDS are arriving across the world

Sunday, January 12, 2020

Before the end of 2019 we sent out 44 postcards all around the world. These postcards were written on by locals of Petrozavodsk, Russia, during the opening of the exhibition of 'News From Home - Petrozavodsk'. During January 2020 we have been receiving many shares on social media of people receiving their postcards. So far they have made it to Korea, Austria, Spain, The Netherlands and Singapore - with more countries to come!

Exhibition Opening - News From Home in Russia

Monday, December 23, 2019

On the 24th of December, 2019 I was in Russia to open the exhibition 'News From Home' Petrozavodsk. This project was the work of myself and Anne Fehres (The Netherlands) and consisted of 16 collages and 38 photographs. As part of the opening there was a postcard exchange organised as part of our the project. Forty four locals from Petrozavodsk wrote a message on a postcard designed for this project. These postcards will be sent to to people in 18 different countries around the world including Australia, Japan, Korea, China, Iceland, Finland, Spain, Philippines, India, The Netherlands, Russia, U.S.A, Canada and Indonesia.

Finishing Up in Iceland with a show, more work to come!

Friday, November 29, 2019

We have enjoyed our time in Iceland over the past month and it was great to be part of the group show at the SIM Residency Gallery. We decided to show a 'video postcard', which was a new way to experiment with our works. In the future we hope to continue working with the ideas and images we have captured in Iceland, to create prints and postcards.
