Annabel Duggleby

  • 1 January – 28 February 2017

We are delighted to announce that Annabel Duggleby will be joining us from 20 January to 17 February 2017 as part of the University of the Arts London Art for the Environment International Artist Residency Progamme 2017. Annabel Duggely, is a recent graduate (2016) of Wimbledon College of Arts, where she studied Fine Art: Print and Time-Based Media. Her practice revolves around issues related to landscape and power, and deals with themes of mobility, land use, globalization and post-colonialism.

During the AER residency at Hauser & Wirth Somerset she will be focusing on Oudolf Field, the landscaped garden designed by Piet Oudolf, and would like to research the plants and grasses used, their history and the journey that brought them to Somerset. The resulting work will comprise moving image, objects, photographs and writings that present different histories, narratives and sites alongside each other. With this work she hopes to continue exploring how the English landscape can be engaged in a political conversation, but also find positive outcomes that might arise from problematic colonial histories.

More insight into her previous research and practice can be found on her website.

You can find out about her time at Hauser & Wirth Somerset on the UAL blog.

The Art for the Environment International Artist Residency Programme (AER) was launched in 2015 by Professor Lucy Orta, UAL Chair of Art and the Environment. AER provides UALgraduates with the exceptional opportunity to apply for a 2 to 4-week residency at one of their internationally renowned host institutions, to explore concerns that define the 21st century – biodiversity, environmental sustainability, social economy, and human rights. Through research, studio practice, critiques and mentoring the AER programme is designed to envision a world of tomorrow; to imagine and create work that challenges how we interact with the environment and each other.
