PAC Home members Lee McDonald and Carl Slater have been selected for short residencies at BACK LANE WEST during May as part of a PAC Home 3/5/7 residency exchange project.
During their residencies Lee and Carl will occupy the space at BACK LANE WEST, to reflect on their practice, expand their network and develop existing ideas for future work. Both artists intend to respond to the location of BLW in Redruth and - in their differing ways - use found materials, processes, texts, and/or archives….
THURS 30th MAY: there will be an open event where the artists will present their experiences of the residencies, along with any work they have made, which will hopefully include an interactive 'machine' by LEE McDONALD
PAC Home residencies at BACK LANE WEST are the first half of a residency exchange project. In JULY artists from BLW will take residence at KARST in Plymouth with the aim of further developing their creative and professional practice and extending their regional and national links.
