Tying the Threads – wall-based screen prints and photos will be exhibited.

This residency begins as Davina enters the final stage of her PhD at UWE: “Stories, lost voices, absence through loss of people and landscapes; a practice-based study of personal grief narratives and participatory projects”.
The resulting exhibitions and events are co-curated with artist and curator Carol Laidler. The residency brings together work made during residencies in Ireland and Germany, and in response to the research question, that explores paying attention to grief and loss through repetitive acts of making and performance and how we live with the presence of absence in our lives.
