Interrupteur Residency


Unwriting Lispector – Book, notebook & looped video projection. Emma Bolland, 2014

I am pleased to announce that I am the 2019 #interrupteur artist-writer in residence for the University of Sheffield’s School of  Arts and Humanities. During  March and April 2019, I will be spending a number of days installed in the foyer of Jessops West, facilitating a space for writing, speaking, reading, text-based performance and installation, and other interventionist surprises.

My inter-medial practice moves between experimental literatures, expanded translations, script and screenwriting, text and space, performance and moving image. The aims of the residency are to forge future links between artist writers and academics, exploring the possibilities of continuing creative/academic partnerships to impact of the life of the University and on the city of Sheffield’s creative community. During the residency I will be inviting a series of creative guests— artists, writers, and performers—whose interests, research and practice intersect with the aims of the residency.

The residency is out-facing, and both myself and my guests will welcome presence, participation, and conversation from and with students, staff—academic and non-academic, and visitors to the university. Come and interrupt us!
