Residency: Whitworth Wallis
 

Birmingham School of Art graduates Suzie Hunt & Tony McClure are currently undertaking the Whitworth Wallis Residency 2017 at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
Continuing with their ongoing practice, they will work collaboratively to develop existing and new works, inspired by the collections of the Museum. 
During the first month of the residency period Suzie Hunt was based on site at BMAG along with Tony McClure. In this time they researched the gallery collections, made work, ran workshops, wrote blog posts; and finished with an exhibition. 

Below you can see the work Suzie, alone, produced during the residency. Alongside this you can see the blog posts, exhibitions and articles, showcasing the progress and success of this residency in the links below.

Work Produced: Untitled (prototype one)
 

Untitled, prototype piece
Digital print on matt paper, 3 parts
1000 x 75 mm


These three large digital prints feature the roofing of the MCC Dudderston collections, looking up from the inside of the space. When entering the
collections we are told we can only view the objects from the ground; as those placed higher up are
inaccessible. Disregarding what’s on offer you look up with curiosity and intrigue, once again to be offered a restricted view.

The work you can see is a result of the 1 month residency on site. Continuing until March 2018, this work will continue to be developed and then re exhibited at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.

Work Produced: Untitled (prototype two)
 

Untitled, prototype piece
Ink on layered tracing paper, 112 drawings, 28 parts
210 x 297 mm


These drawings depict the navigations of visitors within Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery. Each drawing focuses on an exhibition space in the
museum and how the public explore it. The colours, inspired from the print process of CMYK, depict different age categories showing what in particular the public are drawn to or avoid. Each generation layer combined allowing a full picture of the gallery environment to be seen.

The work you can see is a result of the 1 month residency on site. Continuing until March 2018, this work will continue to be developed and then re exhibited at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.
