Who would imagine that a week spent on a Scottish hillside, in a converted container in a blizzard could be such an inspiring experience? I was delighted to be chosen as one of six emergent artists to take part in a Luminate Older Artists Lab on the banks of Loch Long at Cove Park. It was an intensive week of discussion and re-evaluation of our practice, leading to some valuable new insights for all of us. We felt it helped us to resolve issues of focus and visibility and taught us to value a collaborative approach. We gelled so well as a group that we’re planning an installation together, based on Lesley Wilson’s play The Field.
