Residency in Lens
I’m excited to announce that this March I will be collaborating with French artist Thibault Jehanne to complete a residency in Lens, northern France. The residency is in association with The ADRT 62 – Mission Louvre-Lens Tourisme as part of the ICR (Inter-regional Culture-led Regeneration) project.
We’ll be working together to create a body of process-led work which will later be shown in Lens and Kent. I will be maintaining a blog for the duration of the project, the domain for which will be posted later this month.
Thiabault Jehanne (Caen, France) and Sophie Dixon (Kent, UK) are cross disciplinary artists working predominately with text, installation, audio and film. Their work has been exhibited within Kent and Northern France and is rooted within site specific projects. Addressing themes of presence, absence, memory and human trace they explore the dialogue between physical location and its interpretation. Exploring ways of interpreting the ghostly traces which lie upon the landscape and crystallising that experience within their process.
