Day(s) - 27/04/2019 - 28/04/2019
During her residency Rosie will be exploring the notion of treasure, a treasured thing and the subjectivity of value and attachment. She will be creating a treasure chest centre piece which will be gradually filled during the weekend with different artworks and items. These will be created out of different materials and in response to people she meets in our store.
To achieve this Rosie invites you to come and share what you consider your treasure to be! You can find her in the front of house doodle area during the weekend, and add your own contribution to the project!
Rosie lives and works in London and completed a BA in fine art at The Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University in 2015 and an MA in Sculpture at RCA in 2017. She has shown in exhibitions such as Flipside, a group show Reed curated at Fold Gallery, Housekeeping at Garden, Los Angeles, and Adventures and Curiosities at Hauser and Wirth, London.
“Organic formations and archaeological processes such as excavation and fossilisation,
combined with an interest in speculative ﬁction and imagined worlds, inform and inﬂuence my making.”
“I am interested in the notion of surfaces disclosing histories, traces of movement and passing time. I grind down and recycle parts of past work to make aggregate that makes up future work; rubbled remnants move through my practice as it evolves.”
“Exploring the exercise of discovery and the unlearning of behaviour conditioned by patriarchy, leads me to consider fantastical, futuristic artefacts, abandoned spaces, buried pasts and new beginnings; environments and objects that allow diﬀerent histories and alternative narratives.”
“I hope to create environments and objects that provide moments of escape or respite from the aesthetics and workings of the everyday. In an exploration of scale, materiality and the provocative potential of colour and surface, I want to elicit a sensory, inquisitive and bodily response from the viewer.”
