Nicola Smith & Julian Hughes, Lace Market Gallery, Nottingham, March 2017. Nicola and Julian used the gallery space as a micro research residency to explore connections between each other's practice and present existing solo work which references being a working artist parent. I presented images taken from my family residency at the Takahuhti Art Centre in Tampere, Finland in 2016. During this period my 2-year-old son continually interrupted my studio practice, although the photographic documentation from that period has been re-presented in the gallery. During this residency I carried out three plate spinning home performances and drop-in family-friendly gallery tours.
