I’ve taken possession of a temporary art space in Leeds this week with the help of East Street Arts. I plan to produce a body of work over the next three months exploring themes emerging from the academic research and their impact on existing aspects of my practice. I have decided to undertake an initial photographic and filmic project In order to better understand and appreciate the material presence of the space. With very little research it has already become apparant that the space has functioned in a number of different ways over recent years; a shop hiring out bridal wear, a centre for Christian communion (Divine Exchange Christian Centre) and more recently as an exhibition space.
I intend to blog in more detail on the work that emerges in the new space on a dedicated site at www.divineexchangecc.wordpress.com
