I’ve been selected for the AA2A (Artists Access to Art Colleges) residency at Salford University. The AA2A project provides placements for visual artists and designer makers in Higher and Further Education institutions across England. In 2011/2012, AA2A schemes will run in 32 institutions, providing 128 placements nationally. In the last 12 years, over 1,200 participants have had the opportunity to undertake a period of research or realise a project, using workshops and supporting facilities in participating fine art and design departments.
I’ve proposed to develop Motus:Immotus and Tearing Space apart – two works that have been initiated over the past 6 months, but now need public installation space to develop them further. Salford University has installation spaces at it’s studios but also exhibition and installation opportunities at the Lowry Outlet Mall and possibly also Media City.
