31st July - 13th September
Julia Manheim worked with grove in July, sharing emerging work and ideas there on Saturday 13 July in Bury St Edmunds. grove is a flexible, supportive opportunity for artists to concentrate on making new work and test ideas.
”The grove residency gave me the opportunity to explore a strand of my practice which has been there all along, but has only surfaced intermittently in the form of actual pieces of work. I used the time to walk different routes in and around Bury St. Edmunds, collecting and documenting any interesting small discarded objects I spotted on the way. The resulting work in progress was shown to the public at the end of the residency and has been reconfigured to respond to the m2 gallery spaces.”
The grove residency is a professional development project for artists in the context of a house, garden and studio. Two artists each summer are invited to undertake a one week residency culminating in a public event.
