Artist in Residence

Venessa Scott, 2021

Throughout the residency Venessa explored the language of Ankara fabric to communicate personal stories of racism and in particular her experience of the Black Lives Matter uprising.

Venessa created collages and a sculpture to depict these experiences through layers of complex pattern combined with the visualisation of words, such as resilience, exposure, and vulnerability, that reflected Venessa’s own journey.
