Time To Stare Bursary Award 2019

  • collaborative work in progress
  • This opportunity to participate in the residential Time To Stare Bursary Programme along with Paul Docherty, Angela Hughes and Brian Keeley at The Studio in rural Three Oaks near Hastings was hosted by B&R Productions and supported by Arts Council England.  It was an invaluable and productive time for us as a collective for a multi-layered exploration of the lived experience of heart transplantation.

Yamantaka
Yamantaka Bibo Keeley Perth Art Museum website

This sculpture was inspired by a performance by the Tashi Lhunpo monks which deeply resonated with me.  It was exhibited in Perth Museum & Art Gallery in 2013.
In 2015 I had the opportunity to present my work to the same monks and to express my gratitude for their inspiration.

I used this sculpture (2012, paper mâché + mixed media) in a performance/moving image piece entitled ‘Apparition of the Rejected’.
