Bristol based artist Clare Thornton will be undertaking a We Live Here residency at Arnolfini to research and develop her new project, Pleats and Folds. Driven by her curiosity around site, narrative and social history, she uses performance, costume, objects, video, photography and text to unravel personal memories and emotional landscapes. Thornton will work with Norwegian artist Jan Steinum and residents from Bradley Stoke and Patchway to create an Open Studio. You are invited to visit and to bring along a ‘soft object’ which embodies an important memory for you. This process of gathering from the public is seen by Thornton as similar to the tender process of pleating and folding. She will carefully unwrap the story of each object until its hidden essence is distilled into a new series of works to be shown at Arnolfini in 2009.
