Caroline will be showing a dance film & origami paper costume within a group exhibition curated by the Museum of Domestic design & Architecture supported by Arts Council England. She was one of four practitioners who researched the katagami collection at MoDA from a variety of perspectives, both historical & practice-based.
More information about the project & associated events can be found here:
Caroline has been awarded a grant from the Gane Trust that will enable her to undertake new research & development into costumes for performance using origami folding techniques & forms that will investigate the folding of space through design and dance.
An item of beauty, curiosity and intrigue, 'Band of Brothers' is inspired by the early history of the brass band movement during the Victorian era. It explores the connections between WW1 and the brass band movement, with the band stand structure as a symbolic architectural memorial to this conflict.
A variety of paper craft techniques have been used on an architectural scale, to create a large scale installation that draws upon the decorative ironwork design of band stands with life size military uniforms made from paper maps.
This work has been supported by Medway Arts Team and Brass Durham International Festival.
Last year we ran a series of free drop-in workshops throughout Summer & Autumn where members of the public were invited to help us create a large scale cut paper textile piece celebrating the countryside, culture and stories of Cobham, Kent. Workshops were held at two National Trust locations & two forestry commission sites in the locality.
We are now finalising the final paper artwork & plan to exhibit the work in 2018 with the exact dates & location soon to be confirmed.
