Somerset Film Artist in Residence 2018
This residency was designed by Somerset Film to provide an opportunity for a recent graduate to explore the creative potential of digital technology at their base, The Engine Room in Bridgwater, Somerset.
Through social engagement, Shannon Watson uses her work as a platform to facilitate discussions around social situations. The result of this is often performative. From swimming lessons at the Tate, to a collaborative project with Imperfect Orchestra, in her work the viewer becomes a performer, a fluid position to be explored.
Open Studios is a countywide event co-ordinated by Somerset Art Works - we will showcase the results of Shannon's research and development inspired by her time at Somerset Film.
10am - 4pm Monday - Friday 17 - 28 September
