‘Domain’, Fabrica, Brighton Festival, Brighton.

Commissioned in 1999 by the gallery, Fabrica, in Brighton, as a site specific body of work that was a response to the gallery space – a deconsecrated church. Every where in the building there was evidence; traces and shadows which illustrated the buildings former life as a church. A series of 19 ‘ halos were made using a range of materials including petals, washers, steel tacks, large nails, gold, silver, iron wire and ash and included drawing onto the fabric of the building. The work was exhibited during the 1999 Brighton Festival alongside a site specific work by glass artist Keiko Mukaide.

An education programme ran alongside the project and included workshops with children focusing on the theme of ‘site specific’. These involved working with a range of materials including; light, water, foils, sand and stones, drawing attention to aspects of the building and its qualities. Other projects included a tour and discussion of publically sited artworks in central Brighton with young adults and an open public tour and talk of the project and the work in the exhibition.
