RESEARCH & RETREAT residency
We invited artist Rebecca Glover [lives and works in London] to spend a 3 week tailored residency at Shelf Wales at a point she deemed useful to take as time out for research and retreat. This time allowed her to conduct research related to her practice, to reflect and to immerse herself in the landscape of snowdonia national park.
'I am interested in points of intersection between the human body and its environment – where narrative, myth, and site merge to make sense of this relationship, drawing up questions about the sort of frameworks that shape this interaction and alternative methods for engaging and constructing a relationship with the world around me. My work looks at flattening hierarchies from human authority to something more mutual. This is mirrored in my use of different media where the emphasis is often placed on the crossing over of sensory perception revealing a horizontal relationship between media and between the senses.'
