Bridget Kennedy has just started her one-month ENTWINED residency at Bellingham Heritage Centre. Bridget is interested in the shaping and history of land through geology, weather and human endeavour and how these relationships are reflected in the tools and technologies used in rural locations. She creates work which is site or circumstance specific, often making objects which combine craft-based, hand making methods with more traditional Fine Art techniques. Previous work has involved making small portable looms, weaving with them outdoors and incorporating materials found at a particular site into the weaving. We look forward to seeing how Bridget will respond to the Heritage Centre’s vast collections and extensive knowledge of its volunteer staff to inform and inspire her work.
Save the date: Bridget Kennedy will be showing works in progress at an open studio event on Saturday 17th July at Bellingham Heritage Centre.
