what it is to be there

an on-going exploration of place and grief


‘There’ is an area of ground in the Garw Valley, South Wales, next to a coal mine and school, neither of which exist today.

Working at the site of my baby’s grave has led to a forensic and spiritual connection with the earth and a bodily understanding of maternal and grief narratives.

The project is on-going. Please see visual journals, below, and ‘news’ for more information. Research and arts practice has been supported using public funding by  Arts Council England and the  Brigstow Institute
