Recipient of Market Gallery’s 2020 Studio Projects HOME Residency to develop a project reflecting on ‘pining’. I will use the month of September to work on a film about heartbreak, nostalgia and the false imaginings of a country — a work of still and moving image held together by an anxious narrator. Mad, oblique and unreliable, pining for something liveable.
