Whitechapel Artist In Residence 2011-2012

The Whitechapel Gallery’s schools programme includes year-long collaborations between artists, students and teachers. Lucy worked with a group of year 10 Art and Design BTEC students at Central Foundation School for Girls, Tower Hamlets, from September 2011 to October 2012.

The project My Body Folded Like a Map encompasses moving image, photography, performance and writing. Exploring the subtle choreographies underpinning everyday experiences it drew on associative processes to make connections between the familiar and the unexpected.

As Far as I Know (2012) was shown across iPod screens, pointing to the way our bodies relate to everyday technology. The work stages the voices of the young women and recalls their thoughts about belief, expectation, love and belonging.
