As Artist in Residence, I was commissioned by Manchester Museum to create an Insect Hotel within the Beauty and the Beasts: falling in love with insects exhibition beginning the end of February 2020. I worked creatively with the public exploring the importance of insects to inform the artwork. A grandfather clock case was used as a foundation to symbolise time is of the essence to care for our earth and all living things, as we are all connected. The residency was cut short due to the pandemic and the artwork was completed in my Lytham St Annes studio.
As a tangential, over 20 poems were created in response to Manchester Museum’s collection of insects. To read a selection click here.
