The value of fragments
Artist Lorrice Douglas has been awarded the British School at Athens Studio Residency, which she will begin in Spring 2018. Lorrice’s work will focus on ‘The value of fragments’ drawing on her PhD at Chelsea College of Art and the BSA theme: Modernity and the Arts. The residency will be an opportunity to engage with science-based archaeologists asking: How might things that are not fully visible be talked about, discovered or grasped (1)?  Is the artwork there if it pretends it isn’t?

Lorrice is drawn to the poetic aspects of analysing matter and ways in which modern technology is used to quantify the past. Her practice involves working in residency-style situations, based on observations that evolve into spatial constructions and narratives. Her studio space will become a laboratory where dialogue becomes matter, a site for the recording of the minute, such as the interplay between words and spaces, dust and light. 

Discussions will unfold via an introductory talk followed by an open studio:
Lorrice says that she is excited to be working with the Greek archaeological scholarly community at the BSA; “amongst individuals whose life’s work is the study of fragments--experts in the realm of the unseen-- and of unearthed matter that is so vital to understanding space and time."
