Annabelle Amoros’s Dover Residency

UCA/AEENSP Exchange

Annabelle Amoros left Dover after her 10-day Residency with DAD. The days went quickly taken up with the  installation of her video Hunter’s Moon for  the DAD Photography Exhibition with herself and Nikita Shergill. The exhibition, part of the curated Fringe Programme of the Folkestone Triennial, has been very well received with around 400 people visiting over 2 long weekends.

Pierre Yves Brest, who had curated the WIP show in Arles, which included work by Annabelle and Nikita, arrived on the Friday from Lille to be part of the Fringe Friday talk Making Things Happen. He took both artists walking up on the white cliffs of Dover and over to St Margaret’s Bay.

As well as invigilating and talking to visitors at the show in Folkestone in the Workshop in Tontine Street, there was time to take in the Triennial as well as a evening of music and film organised by Ewan Golder at The Bar Below in Folkstone.

Annabelle Amoros spent the last few days of her residency researching for a new project in Dover.

“I really enjoyed the residency in Dover. It was very nice to be part of the Folkestone Frnge during the Folkestone Triennial and I am looking forward to coming back to England for a new project !”

We hope to welcome Annabelle Amoros back soon.
