Marl Hole is an encroachment hard to imagine. Notions of the familiar were pulverised and references to its scale difficult to comprehend. Initial frustrations were physically made manifest: form and psychology merged. Emotional discharges became an embodiment of feelings, and the works became actual experiences in themselves.
Residency 24-28 August 2009.
