Arriving at work at @bishopsgateinstitute and the first thing I see is a West Side Story poster! It’s getting so exciting now! I also get to work in the absolutely beautiful Great Hall and sit imagining how the set will look! What an absolute dream of a venue to perform in! #bishopsgateinstitute#westsidestory#musicaltheatre

"The tactile engagement with material, light and process is at the core of my practice, and I want the work to have an active presence that changes around you." –Anne Hardy
Many of the materials, objects and sounds for her FIELD works, Hardy finds on the street: things that have been discarded and have lost their original function. They have become essentially "ambiguous" in the sense that they have the possibility of containing two or more ideas simultaneously. Hardy thinks in the same way about space; places can be both strange and familiar, floating between the real and the imaginary. It is precisely this ambiguity that Hardy captures in her "FIELDS." They have something magical—something you have to experience but which is also hard to put into words. In Hardy’s own words: "they make us aware of ‘the slippery nature of our perception of the world.'"
